    Re: McDonald's or Luby's (or any other cafeteria)

    I have no idea what "Luby's" is, but sometimes I crave a Big Mac and there ain't nothin' that's gonna fix that but a damn Big Mac.


    I rarely eat fast food, but when I want it, I ****ing want it and I go get it.

    That said, I crave 'healthy' meals as well. Basically, I eat whatever the hell I decide sounds good that day. LOL Sometimes it's SPAM and eggs. Sometimes it's smoked turkey on a bagel. Sometimes it's Ramen. Sometimes it's chinese takeout. Sometimes Thai takeout. Sometimes Mickey D's. Sometimes cubed steak with steamed veges.

    I don't really consider the "value" of the food I'm eating. I consider the following: "What do I feel like eating right *now*?"

    I've actually just gotten interested in eating healthy. I've basically been living the "college lifestyle" ever since I was 18...which basically means I'd eat fast food every day and/or cook some nasty processed food. Not exactly the healthiest lifestyle.

    I think most people would be amazed how much better they would feel (and how much weight they could lose) just by a few very simple dietary changes.

    The anceint Spartans used to feed their children from birth to the age of 18 on nothing but rain water and cup-o-noodles.

    It did not do them any harm.

    Sure, by choosing the most expensive items on the menu, then the cheapest at the local cafeteria... but that's not really a fair comparison, is it?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If I'm gonna pay for someone else to make my food it has to be good. When we go out we prefer Indian, Thai, Sushi, or a decent Italian place. I also like to sit down and spend some time there appreciating the fact that I don't have to cook or clean up.

    Is Luby's like a diner? We don't have many diners here.

    Actually I was referring to just McDonald's. I don't know what Luby's sells. Don't have one in my state.

    And I've heard nasty stories about their meat. Shame really because the idea is good.

    If I'm in another city and hungry then I try and find a baguette shop or similar.

    I cannot remember the name of it either, and it was just on the news. It was closed down by the Metropolitan Transit Authority in order to make way for a mass transit rail line through that area. It is a shame, because it was the second best barbecue in the area. The best barbecue is at a place called The Swingin' Door, out near Fulshear, and east of Richmond. That is probably the best barbecue in Texas.
