Some restaurant food tastes better simply because they use an insane amount of butter. It’s not necessarily better food.

What's insane about it ?

 

You might like to note that much asian cooking (curries etc) depends upon ghee, which is clarified butter, rather than oil.

Ghee is supposedly better f or you than the solid state butter.

Especially if you have problems with lactose. The lack of milk solids also means it can be hotter than butter without burning, which makes it healthier.

We could get metaphysical about food. If the English upper class was ever redemptive to other countries it’s that any ounce of supremacy was about a posher demeanour and not a physically fitter body. The harsh reality is that capitalism can extort middle class people to feel defensive against the segment of working class people who are smaller in stature in order to deter physically strong working class people against the threat of violent insubordination. It’s because we don’t have many subsistence farmers that we forget that most poor people in ancient history might have been physically extremely fit. Unfortunately rich people can downplay the supremacy of poor African athletes by being too distinct from poor white people. Not one person should feel extorted to defend their wealth class unless they root in nuclear war! Obesity as a physical defence would makes sense if you were capable of a blasphemous rage matching the toned physiques of Chinese communists! If a few lower middle class people dislike champagne socialists it’s possible that a contributing factor is that middle class champagne socialists are mentally or physically stronger and downplay how extortionate it is to identify as a capitalist against communism. As such if I identify as an absolute socialist it’s to outcompete the idea that I’m a champagne socialist because I won’t take responsibility for third world poverty as a belief system if poor people vouch for capitalism!

I once got a beetroot and cold salmon dish in a restaurant in Dublin and tried to learn from it by adding beetroot to a pre-made lasagna:

I used to be addicted to sweet and sour chicken and so I tried to sweeten up an Indian chicken tikka dish with a fried mandarin orange along with adding lemon marmalade to the sauce:

Some fast food can be healthy in a sarcastic way to disprove people who overeat healthy food. For example it’s very easy to think you’re nice to enjoy a ham and cheese sandwich but the catch is if you stuff the sandwich with chicken and eggs too along with toasting it to make the butter and cheese resemble pizza then you might still be deterred from overeating cold and simple sandwiches when you’re not a marathon runner! Likewise the blatant indulgence of hot chocolates can prevent you being addicted to the asceticism of milk when you’re tall enough to require more calcium only that it requires a lot of masculinity to find a balance between addiction and self-ridicule. Eating chips places a self-deprecating limit on eating potatoes with too much butter and gravy where you wouldn’t be meditating sufficiently on the potatoes anymore!

I feel like I'm reading a food blog.

The idea of fast food parodying healthy food can be the same for many drugs being a victim of their own karma. For example alcoholics might dislike being highly extraverted by overdrinking with others to try and disprove how ethical they were to talk to one another. Humility is very ethical but is easily hijacked by perversion. For example marijuana might make those already prone to spirituality to downplay their spirituality by attributing too much of their insights to drugs when a lot of their thinking might still have been internal.

Yet another factor in obesity is that a lot of athletes can be too emphatic without being sexy enough. The dilemma is that many top athletes are able to be sexy if they tried to be but are often unwilling to let slightly less hardworking athletes be viewed as sexy. For example as a teenager I always counterbalanced cardiovascular exercise with weightlifting because no matter how strong and handsome bodybuilders and marathon runners can be they often downplay how nice they are by not being slightly androgynous. As such no matter how superior I try to be at walking I can always mislead others into how egalitarian I can be just to pride myself on walking stamina!

I find this nearly unintelligible.  What is your goal?

If you want health and fitness, don't obsess over food.  Set a few boundaries and walk on.  Minimize sugar and ultraprocessed foods whose ingredients list looks like a list of chemicals you don't have in your kitchen.   Embrace fiber.  Avoid foods that contain the word "isolate."  (eating an isolate is like taking vitamin A pills instead of having a carrot or sweet potato)

Offering light criticism can often be a backhanded way to downplay just how threatening other people could have been! I feel the entirety of China could be sacrificed in any nuclear exchange just to achieve destruction of critical targets in the west!

What?  What does any of that have to do with restaurants and food?

Or anything I said?
