That "drive-thru challenge" question (on SparkPeople's poll)

Monday, January 14, 2013

I guess my biggest challenge at drive-throughs - or "drive-in windows" - is... NONE!!

'Cause I hardly ever go there!!

After living about eight years in the Balkans, Italy, and East Africa - ALL of which have very good local food - I'm pretty sure I didn't "leave" or "lose" anything at a drive-through window. And so, you find me there only rarely. This takes a load off... literally!! LOLLL!

Yes - every now and then I DO stop at one. Sometimes for coffee; sometimes for a "soft-serv" cone - aka frozen yogurt.

But I have no problem carrying fruits and veggies in a bag, or in the car, or making myself a veggieburger sandwich to bring along. And, yes, every now and then, I may indulge in a few fast-food french fries - but it's a RARE day, indeed! (There's a better chance to catch me ordering pizza - almost ANY kind except Domino's (personal preference).

Done for now! Thanks for reading and have a GREAT week, everybody!!

    Yepper I agree....I am drive thru free too:) I pack my own food all the time and yes get some looks. Oh well at least I feel good about the foods I am eating.

Happy Friday!

    Growing up in a remote area, even when I *did* go into fast food places? I parked and walked in!

Now, of course, about all I can get 'out' is a coffee or whiskey. Celiac is 100% genetic, therefore 100% unforgiving. I can't even if I wanted to.

    Even if I do go to a fast food place (which is rarely except for coffee), I always go in and not through the drive-through.

    I don't frequent drive-throughs either. There's too much good stuff out there to waste calories on fast food.

    This is very interesting, especially since just about every other commercial features fast food. That's a lots of control - very inspiring ........hmmmmmm

    Interesting! How we're Fiji and India? I hope to visit both someday.

When you got back to USA and went to fast-food places, maybe you felt like you had "missed" something...??

Thanks for sharing!

    Good for you!! Drive ins aren't an issue for me now, either. However, after living 3 years in India and the Fiji Islands 40 years ago, when I got home I frequented them.
