Honestly I never got why people go to fast food places like Mcdonalds for healthy options. It's like how people seem surprised at how many calories are in their foods. I'm like duh, it's kind of obvious that you are not going to be doing your waistline any favours by eating there every day.
McDonalds when I was growing up was a treat that you had maybe once every couple of weeks. What happened to people being able to have some semblance of self-control? Nowadays fast food businesses can't advertise on the television during shows aimed at kids, we can't have lollies near the front counter because heaven forbid a parent has to do actual parenting and refuse to buy these products.
I personally like McDonalds when I want something fatty and nasty. I'm not going there for the five star cuisine.
Also on another point, having worked at Subway, that is definitely not a 'healthy' option a lot of the time. Customers used to think that a sandwich containing pepperoni, ham and salami was magically going to have a low calorie count because it was made by Subway. And there is really nothing 'fresh' about frozen food that gets reheated in the microwave haha.
