      Taco Bell?


      Well, it ain't like it is food.

        I like Taco Bell.  It's about the only place we can get fast food for my vegan (fresco) and veg kids.  You can get fairly healthy stuff for really cheap prices.  What's not to like?

        Well, it ain't like it is food.

          I like Taco Bell.  It's about the only place we can get fast food for my vegan (fresco) and veg kids.  You can get fairly healthy stuff for really cheap prices.  What's not to like?

           

           

          I like it, too. But, frankly, I generally see a downtick in my healthy-feelingness when I fall off the wagon and stop there multiple days during a given week.

           

          You want healthy, vegan and way cheaper than Taco Bell?

            Question, why would it take 7 years to develop a healthy menu?

              I LOVE the Bell. But that is not the same as it being food.

                I didn't post it so much to pick on Taco Bell, but to point out how our choices in food or "food" are driven by perception.

                 

                "43 percent of conversations about “meat” over the last six months were negative...only 6 percent of conversations about “protein” were negative."

                  It's not like anyone needs to buy fast food - ever. I eat it maybe once a year...

                    Mmm, Crunchy Tacos.

                      So, if TacoBell "meat" is grown in a lab, will animal-rights vegetarians eat it?

                        My kid is a super picky eater (hurray, Autism!!) and 50th percentile height, while only 10th percentile weight.  Were it not for TB's Doritos Locos taco (minus anything other than meat and cheese) he'd rarely ever eat much in any restaurant -- he'll happily inhale 2 of those in a sitting.  We pick our battles.  We find ourselves eating at TB somewhat often if we're traveling or grabbing something quick.   I'm pretty fond of their burrito supreme, too.  Aside from the weird meat blend it's just beans and veggies.  I wish they gave the option of a whole grain soft tortilla.

                            Or if you have a Kroger nearby, Simple Truth organic beans in a can at the same price.  I grab 3 or 4 cans every time I go there.

                              I actually like Taco Bell, but since no one else in my family will go near it, I don't get to eat it often.  Also, there's a much better locally-owned chain that has awesome burritos.

                               

                              As for meat, "meat", lab-grown "meat", protein, or beans, I don't much care which they serve, but I think food producers and restaurants should be required to label their products honestly.
