Wait, are there In & Out Burgers around here? I may have to switch back for a day. :shh:


Unfortunately there is not. I've just made so many trips to the left coast I've had I&O many times. :)

How do they compare to Five Guys, which certainly isn't diverse?

The rich western diet, E.g. fast food, kills 11 times more people every day than tobacco. Would you let your children smoke?

I would say they're pretty equal/compatible. There's almost like a cult following for I&O. But to their credit, they use fresh ingredients, their menu is short and sweet: they do burgers, fries, milk shakes, soft drinks... and that's it.

However, our local Bobby's Burger is better than I&O or Five Guys. So when I need a burger fix, it's Bobby's for me. :thumbup:

I'm not a fast food regular AT ALL. A burger joint like these is something I may frequent maybe a few times a year. All things in moderation IMO. When it comes to eating-- I'm a home boy. But that doesn't stop me from making a recommendation if I know of a decent food joint.

Would I let them smoke? It depends... I would let them smoke salmon, chicken or turkey when the we fire up the smoker. :P

p.s. My many trips to I&O is because I'm not always picky when traveling and I succumb to eating when & where it's convenient.

The fast food chain plans to start selling a McVegan burger in hundreds of restaurants across Sweden and Finland starting on December 28.

The sammich, which has already been tested at a handful of McDonald's locations in Finland, consists of a soy patty, bun, tomato, lettuce, pickles, onion, ketchup, mustard, oil and an egg-less sammich sauce.

"Like our other burgers, the McVegan is tasty and has a good texture," said McDonald's (MCD) spokesperson Henrik Nerell.

The meatless burger, which was developed in partnership with a specialty Norwegian food company called Orkla, could help the American chain capitalize on increased demand for vegetarian and vegan foods.

McDonald's said the burger will be on its permanent menu in the two countries, a response to "more and more" people wanting to eat "plant-based food" that is better for the environment.

"As the main ingredient is plant-based, the McVegan is considered to have a smaller climate impact," McDonald's said. Livestock farming is responsible for around 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions, according to the UN.

I have yet to find a veggie burger that is any good, and something tells me this won't be the one.



Black bean burgers can be pretty tasty!

Scientists looked at five different dietary plans to determine which cut heart failure risk the most: convenience (including fast food and pasta), plant-based, sweets, Southern (which included sweet beverages and fried foods) and alcohol/salads. People who consumed mostly produce decreased their risk of heart failure by 42 percent, according to a release, compared to those who ate less fruits and vegetables.

So glad they added this part: "The other plans weren't associated with better health." No, really?

It would have been better if they used more normal, non-veggie diets. "Sweets" is not a dietary plan. And what the heck is an "alcohol/salads" diet anyway?


Ummm, heard of "The China Study"? This is not new. Also read the book of Daniel for an even earlier study.

We have become everyotherdayatarians. We only eat meat every other day. I like it because it makes me appreciate a nice piece of meat more. We usually go fish then chicken then beef.. eat a lot more veggies...
Outstanding!

Is that based off the study where people who eat nitrate laden foods weren't separated from those who try to eat clean?

Bologna doesn't equal grass fed steak, and blue cheese doesn't equal blue cheese dressing with the first ingredient of soybean oil.

Rather than attacking meat, wouldn't it be more productive to target the substances which make it toxic?

A rich diet isn't a bad thing in itself. I just scarfed down a grilled sammich of refried beans, grass fed (non-steroid) burger with refried beans, on homemade organic bread buttered with good quality ghee.
It was a rich meal, but it doesn't compare with a "beef" and sawdust burger from McDonald's, served in a roundup laden bun sprayed with termite poison, topped with "artificial cheese food" made from trans fats, nitrate laden bacon, and smothered in a quarter cup of mayo made from soybeans sprayed with glyphosate just before harvest...then garnished with high fructose corn syrup.

JCZ identifying as a soy boy is starting to make sense, though...that many phytoestrogens can wreak havoc on the mind as well as the body.

I've tried, but have made peace with the fact that we live on a planet where we eat each other. When I'm thanking Great Spirit and Mother Gaia for sustaining me, I also thank the animals who have given so much to help keep me alive. I've made a standing offer to any and all critters whose body I have eaten a chunk of to hit me up in a future lifetime because I am indebted to every one of them.
