Okay so I want to preface that most of the time I get along with this person let's call Carla but I'm not going to let someone tell me what to eat and where.
Well I work second shift, and I was craving a hamburger for a while (few days). There's a fastfood burger place close to work so on my lunch break I went and picked up a " Tall burger" it was nice and hot and my mouth watered walking back to the break room.
Then I seen Carla, she's a vegan and even though she tells everyone she's a vegan she's never really been pushy (worked together a few years). We exchanged pleasantries she noticed the bag in my hand and said something to the effect of "yeah can you not eat that in here, the smell makes me nauseous and I can smell it already " . I said "well this is the only breakroom and I'm hungry so..." she suggested I eat it outside (we live in a cold snowy state). I just started eating and ignoring her so she left.
Well evidently she went and complained to some people because someone in my department brought it up later, she said I was mean to do that and I should compromise.
Thing is I'm a pretty empathetic person, if someone has a allergy or something I try to accommodate, but being a vegan is a choice and it's not like I went out of my way just to annoy her. I honestly didn't even know she was in there til I got back, but I'm not going to eat out in the cold just to please someone.
I still kinda feel bad for making someone feel sick, like maybe I could have just saved it for after work.
I feel like there is this pressure when cooking food from other cultures to make everything from scratch and source the exact right ingredients. But people in other places must have their lazy days too, right? What kinds of store bought quick cooking dinners does your country or culture have?
Edit: Sorry, I didn't say that I'm asking this from an American perspective; I know we like to assume everyone on the internet is from here. :P I am in California, but if there are some hyper regional dishes within the United States I'd love to hear them too.
In school when we had to fold our papers the teacher would say hamburger style if we were to fold at the horizontal center.
Or if was hot dog style we would fold it from the vertical style.
Sorry if I don't make sense, just woke up and curious.
ETA I've been out of school almost 20 years.
ETA part deux I'm really stupid, I never really thought it was strictly an american thing.
I'm going to edit this last time to ask, does anyone know how to turn of the inbox replies on this because it's a lot. I've learned quite a bit today!
It’s kinda ironic because I never really liked meat that much as a kid, so I would always get anything chicken at any food place (chicken strips, chicken sandwiches, chicken pasta etc.) but as I got older and my tastes buds developed for more foods; I still think that chicken Sandwich are better than hamburgers. I feel weighted down from eating a big (or even small) burger, but when I eat a chicken sandwich I don’t feel that same feeling at all. I also don’t really think adding all the condiments makes a burger any better (tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, ketchup etc) while most chicken sandwich just have 1 or 2 condiments to make it enjoyable. That’s just my honest opinion (first one too on this Sub)
My friends believe ketchup on its own is the most unhealthy part of a hamburger, due to its sugar. Although I would agree that ketchup is not that great for you, it is hard for me to accept that as the most unhealthy. I always thought the saturated fat in burgers would be more unhealthy.
Just wanted to give a heads up to anyone missing the Aldi's Zero Carb bread while it not being sold (hopefully just temporary).
Was at my Aldi's today and they had L'oven Fresh Keto Friendly Buns, first time I have seen them on the shelf. While not quite as good as the bread at 2 net carbs per bun, I think I can fit them in until the bread is back in stock.
Lots of people claim to love super-thick hamburger patties for their hamburgers and cheeseburgers, and think thinner patties are inferior. I disagree. A good burger is about the mix of all ingredients - patty, bun, toppings and condiments. A thick patty overpowers the overall mix and actually makes for an inferior burger.
