Since I heard that Subway admitted using a plastic-like material in the making of their bread I don't trust them anymore.

All you have to understand is that Subway is just sub shops meet fast food. Subway was never really that far above McDonald's and co.

A lot of times one can make a good meal out of healthy ingredients in the time it takes to go out and get fast food.

I think its great if people could make their own food all the time but the thing is the opportunity cost is to high compared to just instantly getting served a sandwich for 5$. People nowadays just dont have the time and money to do so.

A lot of people can create the time to eat better food and more real food. A lot of people can create the time to make more home cooked meals. It is nice to have convenient foods sometimes, though, whether it be processed foods and prepared foods from grocery stores, or a $5 foot long from Subway when you are on the go.

What is a problem, though, isn't so much creating more time for real food and home cooked food. What is a big problem is that so much food from grocery stores has junk. I had tacos for dinner today. Fresh ground beef, fresh veggies, shredded cheese. However, the taco seasoning from a packet probably has preservatives and artificial colors and such. The crunchy taco shells probably have preservatives. It is stuff like that. Some people who make a home cooked meal of oven baked white meat chicken and steamed vegetables might still get some junk depending on the chicken they buy, because a lot of boneless, skinless chicken breast meat - mostly good stuff - might not be hormone free and might have junk in its feed like tylenol and anti-depressants. This kind of shit goes into a lot of chicken sold at grocery stores.

America needs to do a lot better with the food industry. They need to make it so that much less junk is there and a lot more wholesome and very good quality foods are available instead.

It costs less to buy groceries and make your own meals, unless you live off of the dollar menu, but that'd be bad... 0_o

If you want real foods, you're gonna have to pay a lot more for it, which most people aren't willing / capable to do.
I trust my local natural market that sells organics only, they're a lot more expensive but at least they're a lot more healthy compared to the others.

Those business owners have to pay for rent/commission, taxes, their employees, and other fees or stuff. So I'm not really blaming them to get everything that's cost-effective as much as possible, otherwise they won't get a penny from their own business. Unless it's illegal or something.. I don't have much knowledge in this, but it seems like people complain about every single thing lately.

Yeah, people complain a lot, but food and America...we really need to do better with the food that is widely available in America. Too much of it has junk, or there is genetic modifications to plants, or junk is in the feed that is given to the animals we eat. The copious amounts of these kinds of things have led to adverse health issues in many people in North America and elsewhere. I'm not saying we should all try to eat nothing but organic food as much as we can, but when you have loads of chemicals in loads of food and some people eat lots of this stuff, surely it has led to cancer in many people over the decades.

Whoa chicken with tylenol and anti-depressants? Insane! =o Yea i can see how convenience plays a huge factor when it comes to this. Im a huge health-nut, I cook everything (pretty much), I eat as clean as i can, everything 100% whole wheat, even the chicken&eggs i get hormone free/organic and blah blah u get the point.

But, I have to be honest i just had BK a couple hours ago on the way home lol I havent eaten all day except for oranges and when i came home i ditched those buns and used my own bread. I did that to sustain me or a bit while i get on the real course meal fresh salmon and eggs ;D Theres nothing like the fruits of your labor when cooking ha and if you dont know how to cook theres Youtube! I learned alot from there =] As you keep cooking you will begin to know more, the easier it will become, begin to have fun and time will fly by.

I feel companies add too much preservatives sometimes and maybe with all those additions maybe the prices rise? yea idk...its in everything so i do the best i can to avoid the over excessive ones. Eating healthy would be alot easier if it wasnt more expensive than the junk food. That is seriously backwards.

That is the thing I'm trying to say. Eating healthy and eating right would be a lot easier if there wasn't so much junk in so much of the foods you get at grocery stores and restaurants. But there is so much of this going around, in large part and maybe mostly because; companies cut corners and take easier routes because they want to do what is cheapest, or anything it takes, to get better profits. This results in a lot of our food having junk and unhealthy things in them (or things like hormones and pharmaceuticals in meat or genetically modified plants). I mean, case-in-point, the beef from McDonald's, BK, and Taco Bell? It is ground beef treated in a process involving ammonia. Yeah, that stuff used as a household cleaner. I forgot why they do it, but I'm very sure it is about saving money and maximizing profit. It is known as that "pink slime" stuff. You might have heard about it before. That is the slang term for ammonia treated ground beef.

lol, most of these people who went to subway to get their lunches or sandwich including me, ARE NOT LAZY.

I just think, that my time is worth more than a $5 sandwich.
you don't buy many different ingredients at supermarket just to make ONE sandwich.

Also don't forget that these ingredients have expiration date at the end you will have more ingredients that you don't really need......


lol its not like they will expire the next day. To solve that in any case better get to making sammiches =] or get creative ha

People be stupid if they think restaurants (fast food) be good. Healthier meals are easy to cook not to mention a meal at a burger joint may come up to be $ 10.00 and with those $10 u could have boughten some carrots ,oranges,broccoli ,chicken, etc. something more benificial to ur body and would last longer then a day.

I usually cook at home are family is into health like crazy all u find in our fridge will be a forest of green ,eggs,yogurt ,soy milk, etc, we usually eat fruit and greens but we eat a lot of chicken and Salmon . It's pretty easy to eat healthy and even if u wanna eat fat food theirs always ways to reduce that intake when people say they don't have time to cook that an excuse their is always time , u could have prepared the food the night before or early in the morning to have it set for later.
I cant see people THAT busy to set aside time like you said. I know its a sacrifice sometimes but its worth it in the end! Im pretty hardcore when it comes to health. As hardcore as my wallet allows me ha but yea you can buy tons of produce for the amount of one sandwich and will last several days!

I'm surprised subway actually put that stuff in our bread. They hate Americans or something? Why don't we have laws against this like other countries?
I actually am as well for some reason, yea its fast food but i thought sometimes i was better off for 5 bucks to hit that restaurant up. Tsk the petition at this point has over 81k signatures and their facebook has many ex-customers they have really let people down.

Does anyone know what is wrong with this chemical? They say it is used in the production of shoes and mats, but that means nothing. Water is used in a lot of industrial production, so should we next force them to bake bread without water? I don't really see what the big deal is if the chemical is safe.
