Today’s society is incredibly fast-paced. We try to fit a huge to-do list into each day and when it comes to eating, it’s usually done on the go. While American’s are finally figuring out the benefits of eating breakfast, the tendency is leaning towards picking it up at the drive-thru instead of taking time to eat at home. Not only can this be expensive, but also extremely unhealthy with additional fats, carbs, and preservatives being used to prepare each meal. In addition drive-thru dining doesn’t actually save most of us time once you factor in pulling into the parking lot, placing your order, finding your wallet and digging out your card or cash, waiting for your food, then merging back into traffic.
