November 16th is National Fast Food Day!
Fast Food - a different viewpoint.
It is an affordable way to experience new and/or different food choices. When you start thinking about fast food options, typically burgers, sandwiches, and fries come to mind. Different cultures have a unique perspective on what a quick meal should be. Let’s explore….
Food Trucks - offer an abundance of variety and a never-ending flow of aroma-bending flavors that excite the senses!
Food Stands - bring a plethora of organic, home-made, quick and easy meals to go! Glad to have my lunch tote from T|W with me! Hot or cold, T|W Tote can handle them all! Add an ice pack to your tote - fruit and a drink. Healthy has met its match.
Who can resist Pizza! One of the favorites of Fast Food; yet it can also be one of the healthiest.
Here are some hints and tricks from T|W Tote for prepping and packing your own amazingly “fast” food!
Fast food can give you the option to eat something instead of skipping a meal.
Skipping too many meals, too often can cause fatigue, and it may mean that you lose some essential nutrients. Choosing a healthy fast food meal that includes fruits, vegetables and excludes fried foods, can help you gain what you need to finish your day without snacking on high-sugar or high-fat foods. With your T|W Tote, your food is always fresh and by-your-side. What’s in your Tote? Read me..
