Fast Food Employees’ Insider Facts May Have You Reconsidering Lunch
If you’re looking for another reason to eat healthy even while dining out and perhaps motivate you to look out for healthy meal inspiration, then OH BOY, do we have the thing for you. In a Reddit thread titled, Fast food workers-What should we never order from you? we get a whole lotta enlightening (and sometimes totally nasty) answers to that very question. This is definitely dining info you need to know!
For instance, user Hotpotabo tells us, “At our Subway, the ‘oven roasted’ chicken was actually boiled in a microwave.” Ugh. Not too enticing, but apparently not a terribly uncommon meaty-treatment according to soflopaintball, who’s a service manager at Chipotle. “Steak also now is pre-cooked (well heated in hot water before being shipped to us).” Um, yum? Nope.
HunterOfTheSky reveals that you may want to stick with wings when eating at, ya know, a wing joint. “I work at a Buffalo Wild Wings. Don’t get anything other than the wings. That’s the only quality thing there. Everything else is frozen shit.” Now, we have to assume he doesn’t mean it’s literally frozen poop, but you get the idea.
If you’re looking for a healthy option, karma_virus warns us to steer clear of certain sandwich artist creations. “Tuna sandwiches. 80% mayonnaise.” Yowza.
Even Starbucks isn’t safe from this thread. likeabaker revealed that “All Starbucks food is reheated frozen food. Ridiculous how little people realize that. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t taste good, it’s just not fresh at all and incredibly overpriced.” But, but… *sigh* Maybe it’s best to explore some healthy (and easy to prepare) home cookin’.
