      Fast food restaurants, are great. You have your big juicy hamburgers that you can eat on the go. But how many pounds does that big juicy hamburger put on you. Veggies, on the other hand that are picked from gardens. The great thing about them is they arent fatting. But the bad thing about them are you have to pick them, wash them, and cook some of them. Which is very time consuming.Which would you pick on a day like this?

      On a day like today which has been very warm and humid I would have picked food as I would have preferred food such as fresh salad on a day like this.

      In an ideal world I would choose freshly picked from the garden but as you say it's very time consuming.

      If I had a big garden then it would be home grown veg
      I don`t eat fast foods any way
      I cook from scratch better for you

      Well it depends on my mood. When I want really fast and I am really hungry already, I'd go for fastfood. But when I am just at home and I have a veggie garden, I'll prepare something yummy and definitely will cook it. Preparation of foods had never been a big deal for me. I love cooking and it makes me happy to see my family like the foods that I prepared.

      I usually just eat fast food because its well... faster. But I like to keep a balance of fast food and fresh ingredient based foods as well. Too much fast food will cause you to get fat.

      I prefer the freshly picked foods and i would not mind consume time to prepare a dish since i enjoy cooking. I like home made dishes than foods in the fast food. I eat on fast foods when i am outside but i have never experienced ordering a meal when i was at home. I sometimes take home foods from fast foods if its too late already and i am so hungry.

      Of course, vegetables are much healthier, just as salads are a more nutritious food choice than fast food hamburgers. That is just common sense.
