There’s A New Burgermeister In Town!

It’s no secret I likes me ‘unhealthy’ food.

If it’s fatty, sugary, bacon-laden, greasy – well, you get the picture.

I do get vegetable matter, primarily through salads.  But, I do like my dressing, croutons, bacon-bits and cheese added.  And I usually drink Coke Zero.  Sometimes beer.

My endocrinologist is not particularly happy with some of my choices (being diabetic, and all), but except for a four year excursion into macrobiotics (wherein I eschewed beef, dairy, sucrose, pork, refined wheat and caffeine), but my numbers are good, and I’ve proper meds,  so I don’t care.

When it comes to burgers, I like taste.  A super-lean turkey or veggie burger just doesn’t do it for me.  What-A-Burger, The Chuckbox, Original Hamburger Works, Thirsty Lion and Culver’s produce fine hamburgers, each different in their own way.  The Chuckbox, Thirsty Lion and Original Hamburger Works have the added joys of beer.  Culver’s has frozen custard, and primo crinkle French fries.

Now there’s a new burgermeister in town!  Freddy’s Steakburgers (and Frozen Custard)!  Similar to the Culver’s chain, but with a smaller menu, Freddy’s has delicious burgers and fries.  Had the frozen custard the other day – tasty, and not overly sweet.  The French fries are very thin, and crisp, and properly cooked – not like the death sticks from some fast-food establishments.  (In-N-Out, are you there?)

Macrobiotics was a long, strange trip.  I felt terrific, slept well, and had amazing energy.  But the lure of the bacon cheeseburgers on the idiot box was too much to bear – soon, I was back into the American fold.

I suspect I won’t live as long eating red meat, but, I’ll be happier.

  1. I suspect I won’t live as long eating red meat, but, I’ll be happier.

    It’s been proven that happy people live longer so it’s probably a wash. If you want something that may be less than perfect for you ENJOY it.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune
