Sorry for rant, but it makes me crazy to hear people debate the merits of Wendys vs. McDonalds. Look at us people, look at us. What we are willing to accept as "cheap food" is nasty stuff indeed and we need to find our way out of this.
Good rant! - however, the title of this thread is "eating out ideas".
Sometimes life is too hectic and fast-paced, and occasionally a "Wendy's" here or a "McDonald's" there isn't a bad thing.
That said, I'd like to hit up "BREAKFAST" eating out ideas! - while I normally have my own "turkey/cheese 1/2 sammich" for breakfast (300 calories and that's WITH mayo!!!) sometimes I need to get other ideas for breakfast. Occasionally I will hit up McD's for a sausage biscuit for 430 calories, but I have a feeling there is something "better" out there! Help??
