Where We’re Eating: Farmer’s Road Drive Thru

FarmersRoad_Website_Slideshow2

There is something endearingly goofy to me about operations that try to make us feel better about our terrible eating habits simply by attempting to make the foods we shove in our snack holes healthier for us. At Farmer’s Road, they make the argument that it isn’t the drive-thru itself that’s bad, but the stuff generally available there. Here, you can order a breakfast sandwich made with all-natural eggs, a whole-wheat bun and locally sourced scrapple, or a stadium hot dog made with an all-natural grass-fed beef dog, low-sodium mustard, low-sodium sauerkraut and a rye pretzel hot-dog roll, with sweet-potato chips on the side, a vanilla-protein-and-skim-milk root-beer float to quench your thirst, and vegan krispy-rice treats for dessert. There are salads, edamame,
burgers and wraps, bento boxes for the kids … and the surprising thing about the place is that nothing tastes as tiresome as the menu seems determined to make it sound.

    I’m all about healthy eating so don’t get me wrong here… But WTF is up with the phrase “all natural”? It’s one of biggest smoke n mirrors food descriptors out there. All eggs are “all natural”. It doesn’t mean organic, humane, cage free, or anything else people associate with it. Everyone stop using this bullshit term!!!!!!! “All natural” does not mean anything and it certainly does NOT mean something is good for you.
