Also, keep in mind that when eating at places that serve a veggie burger, they are oftentimes cooked on the same grill as the beef hamburgers. Some of them will instead microwave it if you ask them to.

I am posting two lovely news articles. The first one provides highlights of several fast food restaurants, including McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, and some others. McDonald's is not the only one that deserves attention:

The second one lists several restaurants, fast food and non-fast food, and what plant-based options are on the menu (vegan as well as vegetarian):

A vegan friend of mine told me this recently, and at first I thought he was mistaken. I heard about this back in the '90s, but I was under the impression that they had changed their formula. Nope! I haven't eaten there since, but I almost never went there to begin with. Even their hashbrowns have beef fat.

I've heard the buns at McDonalds have beef extract, too

Regarding Newman's Own salad dressing, I think it's one of the best (if not THE best) dressing on the market. They have more vegan options than a lot of other brands and I find the flavor much better. That's my 1st choice, 2nd is Ken's dressing.

Good to know. When I travel for the holidays, I get two 99c McD side salads with a low cal dressing (Newmanís Own Low Fat Balsamic Vinaigrette or Cilantro Lime Glaze) + water. I use less than one dressing packet. This is a CHEAP travel meal! :)

We have to be careful. The red beans and rice at Chili's contains chicken broth. Many restaurants use beef, chicken, and dairy products to enhance flavor. Unless it specifically says otherwise we should presume restaurant food has animal fat in it.

Good to know. I had no idea. But I don't eat there either.

I heard that, go for a plain baked potato at wendys, the only thing I will buy at mcds is coffee, that bad everywhere. MCDS can make the simplest healthy food poison like they did with oatmeal

Did anyone read the article on commondreams.org about McDonalds using Beef Extract as an ingredient in their fries? I don't know about you, but I've had moments when I needed something to eat, was out running errands and stopped for fries. I know it isn't healthy, but if all my choices were I wouldn't need this site. However, I think its a serious marketing error to let customers think they are buying a vegetable product and then adding meat to it. I wouldn't have ever bought fries there if I had known they had beef extract in them.
