I haven’t always been vegetarian.
Back in the dim dark past during my carnivore period I used to partake of the offerings provided by Golden Arches Inc.
I was no different to anyone else, I was attracted by the glitzy advertising, the quick convenience food, the brightly lit stores and yes I had fries with it.
As I evolved I moved from carnivore to whatever you call someone who eats fish. Pisces ???
I have already mentioned my fish aversion and the effect it has on me previously, so I guess it’s a measure of the quality of the ‘Filet’ that I could eat it without any adverse reaction
I finally grew out of this phase and figured that cows look better in fields and fish look better in the ocean and never ventured near those Golden Arches again.
I’d often thought it was a shame that in Australia they never sold a veggie burger.
Cue 2004 and what happens, they go all healthy in their marketing and introduce a vegetarian range and Salads Plus. Wouldn’t you know it I follow a BTD now and the burgers are made with chick peas [avoid] the bread is made with wheat [avoid where possible] the salad has tomato, vinegar, mayonnaise [all avoids].
They’ve even introduced a café set up where all the bread and cake is wheat based, loaded with sugar and cream, but they’ll tell you it’s healthy.
I can’t even get soy milk in my coffee there.
It’s never been easy getting decent take away as a vegetarian, trying to BTD it is well nigh impossible.
