"Real" food vs. "fake" food

Often times in this world of ours it is difficult to find "real" food. I'm not entirely sure that I have but for the sake of this blog I believe I have eaten a real cheeseburger at some point. If my memory suits me it was while I was on vacation in Virginia and my family and I went to a fancy restaurant. This restaurant is where I had the most delicious burger ever. It was juicy and hot and melted in my mouth. All of these things I remember and that was almost 10 years ago.
Nowadays, most of the time my burgers are either from Mcdonald's or Frank's Place. Sure these sub par burgers satisfy my hunger but they cannot compare to that burger I had years ago. These "fake" burgers do not taste the same, they are saturated in salt and condiments and one cannot actually taste the meat. The "fake" burger is actually bad for you since it contains tons of saturated fat which leads to heart disease.
I never really wanted to switch to fake burgers but the reason it happened is because they are much more affordable. I hope to have a real burger again sometime soon.
The person who wrote this article was talking about the differences between grass-fed burger and boca (or veggie) burgers. We made a lot of the same points because we both preferred delicious real meat over processed salt saturated piles of so called "meat". I hope that soon Americans will learn good taste and I will be able to return to good food.
