What a good idea ~ I always end up getting something Mickey-D's, but even when I make a good choice there I don't feel full. I'll have to stop by my neighborhood Giant Eagle next time I'm in a hurry!:-)

Me and my husband actually do this alot, we both stopped eating fast food after the movie "Supersize Me" and so when we're hungry and on the road we go to the grocery store pick up a loaf of bread, cheese, sandwich meat and mustard or mayo and make ourselves sandwiches. They much healthier and I think they taste better too!
Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into and hard to get out of...
Yes I discovered this when I was in school and worked a full-time job. Since I only had about an hour between work and class, I pretty much had to eat out...especially since there isn't always a microwave or refrigerator handy. Sometimes I got tired of eating fast food and trying to make it into a healthy meal by eliminating mayo/bun or getting a side salad in the place of fries (side salads at fast food restaurants basically consist of a bunch of lettuce and dressing...Yuck!).
Don't forget, many grocery stores also have a nice salad bar where you can fill up on lots of fruits and veggies.
Good Monday morning, all -- I left home this morning, headed to the library for a long day of research and writing. Realized I would be hungry while I was here, but didn't want to leave to go out for what prob would be some kind of fast food. I decided I would smuggle food into the library instead (which is where I am right now) and tried the grocery store on the way. Probably everyone in the universe realizes this but me, but I found absolutely great "fast" good there, particularly in the deli area. Examples: two hard-boiled eggs, peeled - 59c; Del Monte Fruit Naturals, a cup of just fruit in different kinds of mixes - $1.49. I ended up with some Wasa fiber crispbread ($2.79) plus a tuna "medley" from Bumble Bee called "Easy Peel Sensations" in lemon-pepper flavoring. It's an individual portion of seasoned tuna (for spreading on those crispbreads) for $2.49. Oh, and it's a whopping 130 calories with 4 grams of fat and 21 grams of protein. Pretty cool. Anyway, my point is there are yogurts, those little BabyBel cheeses, cottage cheese, crackers, all kinds of fruit and lots of other really good, nutritious stuff -- plus the plastic utensils to eat it with. My eyes were kind of opened to the possibilities, so I thought I'd share. Cheers, Kit
