Family * Travel * Food

Could you live off of fast food?

This week has been a very hectic week for me. I have had several events that I have had to attend or drop off/pick up children to and from. This has lead to us eating out for 2 days. Now this is very unusual for my family since I cook daily and take the occasional Friday night off. Yesterday Chardie looked at me as she placed the last bite of her chicken sandwich in her mouth and said "Bawbi, I think I am done with fast food for a good while now". I agreed with her. We discussed how we don't think we would ever be able to live off of fast food for more than a couple days (in extreme circumstances). We know a lot of working families that eat out every day of the week and I don't know how they do it! It is amazing the things you can make at home with minimal ingredients, very economically at that. One sad thing is our nation will continue to develop heart disease and high blood pressure because of how enticing fast food dollar menus look on folks' pocketbooks.

Do you eat out a lot? Could you and your family live off of fast food?


  1. Occassionally, I would take Connor to Chick-fil-A but that's probably once a month. We don't eat out very much and when I do , I prefer to go to a restaurant rather than a fast food chain. Also, I cook 4-5times per week so there's usually no need to eat out.

  2. afford to live off fast food?... who could?! If I happen to swing by mcds as a treat for the fam... It's always over $30!

    way too much. I don't mind doing it as a treat... but economically speaking, we have to make things at home.

  3. I need to take a page from your book. We don't eat out that much but I do find myself relying on frozen foods. And while I make healthy choices I am still concerned about the sodium in frozen foods. I just need a meal plan to follow that I can use for meals.

  4. Are you serious? after spending $250.00 at the grocer I refuse REFUSE to spend money on fast food.
    But hahahaha I will spend 2.00 on a diet vanilla coke from sonic.

  5. Heh, could I? Yeah but I'd be sick as a dog. I currently eat more fast food now than I ever did - mainly because I crave certain items that must be made a certain way. Like a POrtillos italian beef or a chicago style hotdog made just right or a taco salad or Chicago style pizza. I can't wait til I'm back to normal.

  6. We are the same way. Most of our meals are cooked at home. Only on occasion do we eat fast food. But there are times when things get a bit hectic and I'm not able to make a full course meal, things happen. But we definitely notice a difference in our bodies.

    I don't understand how people eat eat all the time it's so unhealthy.

    Good post!

  7. nope i would die and go broke trying to feed me and mine

  8. i could live off chick fil a and in and out burger.

    my heart wouldn't appreciate it though.
