Eating Out

Post by assassin on Mon Oct 23, 2017 3:12 am

Its come to my attention that an average family eats out on average 3 times a week, this astounded me and it made me think, currently the Government are on their usual agenda of giving us pills and more pills to swell the coffers of the big Pharma's and with such claimed statistics (if true) it becomes understandable why they are targetting things such as diabetes with their play on words such as "you are at a greater risk of diabetes" which in truth means you haven't got it, but.

Instead of giving you pills for diabetes they can prescribe pills to "help" prevent you getting diabetes, so if they don't get you one way they scare you into complying, another way.

So what do they actually mean? do they mean people go out to restaurants three times a week, or do they go out to a restaurant once a week and order in chips from the chippy twice a week, maybe a pizza from the local pizza takeaway, or order a curry from the local Indian, or order a kebak from the local kebab shop, they made no mention of which, or what combinations it was.

Did they include the large chains such as Mucky D'd, Burglar King, or Ken*uckedup chicken which now proclaim themselves as restaurants, really? how many restaurants do we know who rush you into ordering at a counter and pay for your food before you wait and some clueless youngster brings your order over with a mobile phone in their free hand, not in any restaurant I have ever been in, and I have been in a fair few of them over the years with clients.

As an aside, a couple of weeks ago I looked at the reviews for our Mucky D's and out of 157 reviews online 121 of them were rated as 0 out of five stars which says a lot.

How do people on limited incomes afford to spend money on ordering take aways three times per week, and what is it costing them for a complete family meal full of processed stodge and containing more chemicals and E numbers than the local chemical factory, and if they are spending this amount of money on take away then what are they skimping on. For those of us who grow our own food it defies belief that people pay overinflated prices for processed stodge which is actually harming them.

Several weeks ago I had to go out with my mother and auntie on family business, I despise my auntie so lets be clear on this, she wanted to go into a Mucky D's and claimed it is fast food which is cheap and nutritious and I had to bite my tongue, I suggested we go round the corner to a local restaurant who have a cafe which is open at dinnertime and I calculated the Mucky D's price for our food (in the loosest possible terms) and when we went to the local cafe we had 1/2 baguettes which were homemade, I had beef sliced from a beef joint and they had ham sliced from a fresh joint and both were still warm. I had the freshly roasted peppers, salad, and homemade coleslaw on mine and Mother had the same, they make their own baguettes and bread and their organic meat and salad is sourced from local organic farms, the price, nearly £3 cheaper then Mucky D's, and this was all fresh food which is supporting local organic growers.

.

Now you know why they are bringing in the cashless Welfare Card in Australia. This will enable govt to analyise the spending of 'x' million people for every week they are on job search allowance.

You can see them screaming the finding of the analysis from the rooftops already.

"If people on welfare can afford to buy takeaway 3 times a week they must be getting too much welfare money so we need to give them less."

Then they will do the same with alcohol consumption and then ...........

The cashless Welfare Card is coming to your community in the fullness of time.

I Have always worked and never been on welfare,  BUT

if ,,,i say if ,,,some one is on welfare and goes out for a meal, i say good on them even if its 3 times a week
this is the government again to DIVIDE AND CONQUER.

Most working class cannot afford to go out one day a week ,

I think most people would not know how to grow their own food or have the time , this is a shame

My life has become so busy that I now go out for meals 3 or more times a week and that has been for at least the last year or so. When I do go out I take spices to add to the meals I order. When at home and cooking I use many a spice and garlic and chillies.

However back to the trend, eating out has spiralled, perhaps because everyone is busy like me or perhaps its just the way society has developed over the last few years. Who knows.

P.S. Good post

Agree with this for sure. Social trend to meet up as well. Again the way society has evolved and will always evolve.

And eating out means processed food in nearly all cases and look what that does to health, a multi faceted approach anyone.
