In the previous post, I wrote about how to eat healthy on a road trip. And as you all know, I write articles on living naturally. But I have to admit I am not a health food perfectionist. I like being spontaneous and it’s hard to be spontaneous if you are 100% anything, especially when on a road trip. So, today I’m going to post my first and probably only article on the benefits of eating at fast food restaurants on a road trip.
First, I want to say stopping at fast food restaurants isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you are healthy, do not have any dietary restrictions, and it is not something you do often, then you should do so. Some wonderful memories can be gathered at a fast food restaurant. You never know who you’ll meet, what you’ll see, what you’ll eat, and what will make you smile.
Fast food restaurants cater to all sorts of people. So, if you like to people watch, these restaurants are good places to do this. But for me, the best part about being open to fast food restaurants is that different regions around America offer region specific foods. For example, Florida has a fast food restaurant called Pollo Tropical. Pollo Tropical serves Caribbean and Latin dishes like black beans, fried yucca, and sweet plantains. Outside of Florida, the only other place you’ll find this restaurant is Georgia. In North Carolina and Virginia, there is a fast food restaurant called Biscuitville that serves southern-style breakfast foods. There, you can find southern breakfast favorites like biscuits, grits, hash browns and country fries. So, eating at fast food restaurants can be a cultural experience too.
