The Wide World of Fast Food

Every June, the quest for the perfect summer body resumes. There is no shortage of information out there on diet plans, exercise tips, juicing or pills to sift through. But if anyone actually had the right formula, there wouldn’t be so many articles out there contradicting each other. There would be more people out there proudly flaunting their chiseled bodies. It’s time to scrap all of the outside information and begin really listening to your body. Sometimes you need to give yourself permission to indulge. You’ll find that genuine cravings only come up once in a while. Now let’s be honest, most fast food out there is total crap. But for those rare companies who’ve honed their recipe over time, credit must be given where credit is due. There is certainly a wide range of options available. We asked Los Angeles pop rock group Millennium, who just released their new single ‘Wide Thing’ [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PX0ZxbvVDPA], about their guilty food pleasures. While they had no shortage of answers, here is their Top 5 list of fast food entrées that get it right.

‘Over the decades, El Pollo Loco has honed their Spicy Chipotle Chicken Burrito to a science. I have been eating there on and off for years now. The key I’ve found is to substitute the standard pinto beans for barbecue black beans. Not regular black beans – barbecue black beans. Pure heaven after I come out of the studio starving.’ –Stryker

‘Once in a while, I crave chili cheese fries, but not just any chili cheese fries. Fatburger makes the best ones. If you order the skinny fries, then they are extra crispy and not soft and mushy like thicker fries. I also order them with extra cheese. The great thing about Fatburger is that they are open 24 hours because you never know when the craving might strike.’ –Sapphire

‘Now don’t kid yourself. It may be fish, but there ain’t nothing healthy about these batter-fried, sauce laden-babies. That said, they taste like awesomeness and for $1.50 each, you can’t go wrong. There’s a Rubio’s around the corner from our gym so, once in awhile, when I feel like undoing a week’s worth of fitness progress, I stop by for my fix.’ –Stryker.
