The reason for my infrequent appearances in the last three or four years is because spouse and I decided to try to get healthier. We didn’t go on any kind of regimented diet or join a gym – just cut back on soda and alcohol, ate larger amounts of vegetables and smaller amounts of meats, fried foods and snacks -common sense stuff.
Along the way, we have lost about 75 pounds and as our tastes changed, our interest in Roadfood waned. The prospect of a massive steak or deep fried hot dog has less appeal to us than the doctors at our check-ups saying, “Just keep doing what you’re doing.”
We still don’t eat at chains and support local restaurants if their menu items fit into our eating plan. We are really enjoying retirement with lots of new interests and projects but pursuing many of the classic Roadfood offerings has slipped way down on our To Do list.
Congrats on the weight loss. I often wonder if someone/some place would come up with a menu of items that were healthier and still satisfying like Roadfood. Right now, it isn’t the same eating a protein burger at In ‘n’ Out. Most places have as a “healthy” thing a pice of chicken breast and a salad or two. If a place could come up with a healthy Double Double though, that would be great!
