You Decide

ava aston went to get a burger but it turns out the debate lead to which was healthier, five guys burgers and fries or mcdonald's.  either way it's all junk food.

So, which do you think is healthier?

So if things weren’t bad enough that I had to skip my work out for almost 3 days but then I  found myself debating with my husband over which was more healthy, McDonald’s or Five Guys Burgers and Fries.  I know what you are thinking… and no I did not hit my head, not this week at least.   But I did break down and yes in case you were wondering, it was Yummo.

Let me set the stage for you (this was an actual conversation).  We were out running errands and of course the Martha Stewart in me had to change things up in our house.  Because truth be told, I have a little OCD and nothing bugs me more than my house being out of order, or just blah.  I can’t be creative when it is, and once I get too much HGTV into my Greek noggin, the “I have to paint this room or change that rug” urge kicks into high gear.  So, we were out at Home Goods (for those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a TJ Maxx to the 10th power only with stuff for your home).  It just so happens that Home Good’s is in a plaza that is home to a brand spanking new McDonald’s which sits across the parking lot from a Five Guys.  There we were, smack-dab in the middle of both of them and of course my husband who doesn’t work out for months and still has a 6 pack says to me…

“Oh man, can you smell that? Those McDonald’s french fries smell so good.”

Okay well, I’ll make you a deal.


“Yeah.  How about we get McDonald’s for dinner and you stay out and help me pick out the paint, rug and new office chairs.”

“Okay.  But there is Five Guy’s over there.”

“What?? Five Guys? Are you serious?”

“Yeah.  Think about it.  They are healthier.”

“How do you figure?”

“They have to be.  They cook all their burgers made to order.
They don’t over process their food like McDonald’s.”

“You think?  Hmm.  I wonder if they really are.  Maybe you’re right.
Let’s go there instead.”

“For real?  You know you can’t order a turkey burger there and they
don’t have salads right?  Cuz I don’t want to go in there and have you
ask for one Go Greek on me and then decide to go to McDonald’s instead.”

“No, I know.  You are probably right anyway.  They probably are healthier.  Should we drive the car over or walk?  Probably walk.”


“Well, this way at least we can somewhat earn that burger.”

No, that is not me eating a french fry at Five Guys. No way, I would never do that. I was at home working out when this photo was supposedly taken. ;D

Then we both strolled across the lot and past the golden arches right into Five Guys Burger’s and Fries.  I felt like I was doing something so wrong but it kind of felt good.  Before I knew it I had actually ordered a cheeseburger with extra lettuce, tomato, pickle and onion.  We both shared some fries and a Coke.  No, not a Diet Coke either.  You know what the best part was?  I didn’t even spontaneously combust, and I actually enjoyed it.  Which made me totally forget the question of which one was better or worse for you.  In the end they both were about the same and equal to some sort of junk food.  But who cares since I got to do it with my favorite person in the whole wide world.  Besides, like they say – everything in moderation.

Blessings, Love & Music ~
