Fast Food

I just got back from my first vacation away from home since becoming a raw foodist and it was very apparant to me that there is a tremendous lack in healthy options in fast food resturants. Now, don’t get me wrong here, this is not a new idea or concept because it is common knowledge that fast foods resturants are just plain bad for you. I do however give them cudoes for putting forth a slight (very slight) effort to provide healthy alternatives. Ok, so the options of salad and salad got old really quick. None of them had a WOW factor to them and all of the dressing choices were horrible! It’s no secret that the dressings ruin your chances of having a healthy meal. My question is why aren’t there more main stream healthy choices? This is a consumer driven market and we dictate the amount of money that goes into their pockets. So, why does it seem so hard to find good choices? I know, I know, it’s just not as profitable. Honestly, I think it is a lack of education. Ignorance may be bliss, but nobody feels truly blissful when their waist line keeps expanding.

My solution? To propose a fast food chain that specialies in providing the public with “fresh” foods. Ok, so that is the name I would call it too ” Fresh Foods”. People are drawn to the word “fresh”, so why not promote the idea of fresh foods.

This fast food resturant would offer fresh, whole food choices such as salads, fresh toppings, fresh salad dressings, cooked foods that would include a variety of wraps and sandwiches all make with fresh, baked daily breads and topped with fresh veggies (and maybe even fruity options as well) with a variety of hearty “meaty” items such as veggie burgers, hummus, nut spreads, etc.

My goal would be to make this resturant at least a vegetarian and vegan resturant with an empahsis in raw foods. People deserve to have good healthy choices readily available to them without having to search all over timbucktoo to find it. It’s no wonder Americans eat such a poor diet. We are a convenience country and healthy foods are not made as convenient as they should be. We need to do something about it. This is my idea.
