It's definitely easier being vegetarian when you are too stressed out to eat. I have not eaten in two days, and I don't think I can. Between school, work, preparing for my internship in Dublin, and life, there has been no time for me to grab a quick meal, or any desire to.
I usually can make myself eat, but at times like this, my meals always consist of fast foods that I can get on the run. Any other month, I would have driven to somewhere like Burger King and bought myself a burger, and ignore how nasty the food really is. I have to actually put thought into what I need to eat and think about "have I had enough vitamins or proteins or anything?" and then make my food choices. No time for that.
I think that fast food is actually very convient and helpful in this unfortunate society we live in, but would it kill a company to make a healthy place! I would love to be able to jump in my car, go up to a window, and order a fruit salad, a spinach salad, or meat substitute products...like Falafels! So far, there are no places like that in this area, and if they do have these healthy items, they always find a way to destroy them with fats and preservatives.
Here's a list of fast food restaurants and their "healthy" choices of salads. I was shocked to see so much fat included. :(
