Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is

Sitting and eating Subway's...

Not really the best to eat in regards to my new (and once again, repetative) diet. My 450 calorie brick of food doesn't really taste all that great, concerning that it was $5.00 for a single half sandwich.

Whatever happened to the $2.50 breakfast bagel at a mom and pop bakery? I miss those places... It was cheap and stacked with bacon-y goodness and eggs cooked to perfection. The melted cheese would dribble down your chin every time you took a bite, but you wouldn't care. It was delicious.

I don't even care if people say that Subway's is better than McDonald's which is better than cooking at home.

It's not about which restaurant can get the most money out of you; it's about the taste and the quality. No one should be eating fast food restaurants in abundance anyway. It's a waste of gas and money. Why go out for that squished, oily cheese burger and over-salted fries when you can just make your own sandwich at home. You have a good knowledge about your own body and what you can eat to be healthy. You can choose your own side dishes when you make your own food at home.

You don't have to be a culinary chef to cook. A basic cheese burger on whole wheat white bread and a side of steak fries seasoned with cracked pepper, sea salt, garlic, and cayenne pepper (baked instead of fried); It tastes so much better when you can make it yourself!

If you don't have the time to make these super simple and delicious (also thousands of calories healthier) meals for yourself. Why not go out and support your local mom and pop place? Not only is it cheaper, you also support your local community and help the economy rather than having big corporations and franchises pocket your money for themselves.

So go on, eat smarter.
