It's Time For A Healthy, Meatless Option (Please!)

My name is Kathy Freston. I'm an author of books like Quantum Wellness: A Practical and Spiritual Guide to Health and Happiness, and some of you may have seen me talking about healthy living and conscious eating with Ellen Degeneres, Oprah Winfrey, Dr. Oz, or others on television or in print. I've been fortunate enough to reach millions of people with a positive message, and with this petition I’m hoping to bring a positive change to America with a mainstream meatless option at McDonald’s! Adding plant-based protein options at McDonald's will appeal to workers out for a quick lunch, families with health-conscious members out to dinner, children on field trips, and anyone looking for something different than the current menu at McDonald’s where even the french fries contain beef flavoring (they don't in Europe, incidentally)! According to a recent survey, more than one-third of Americans already buy meat substitutes for reasons that range from health to ethics! So why not make a meatless option available at one of America’s favorite restaurant chains for everyone to enjoy? Healthy living should be about progress, not perfection, and this is an easy step that McDonald’s could be taking. Sales of meat substitutes in the U.S. bring in over $553 million a year and visionaries like Bill Gates of Microsoft and Evan Williams and Biz Stone of Twitter are helping fund some of the many meatless options in development for mass markets. Meanwhile competitors like Chipotle have new braised tofu Sofritas, Tropical Smoothie added vegan chicken strips, and Burger King has a veggie burger! That's not even getting into the fact that KFC has vegan chicken in Canada (really, try it!), Subway already has a veggie patty, and McDonald's Canada has veggie wraps!  We Americans love a protein center to our meal, so veggies and salads alone (or even in a wrap) won’t do the trick; we want something hearty and protein-centric just like the burgers and sandwiches you already have, only with something plant-based instead. In September, McDonald's partnered with President Bill Clinton (who improved his own health by eating plant-based foods) and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation to make some youth marketing improvements, but still left me and many members of the public wondering about people of all ages looking to lower cholesterol, reduce saturated fat intake, and cut calories. Offering an option that is completely without animal products is ideal, not only for those who don’t eat animal products for ethical reasons, but for those who are lactose intolerant or have egg allergies. Like many Americans, I’m over this "all or nothing" way of thinking by powerful decision makers in the government and in the corporate world. We need to work together to find positive ways to work towards common goals like eating healthier, farming sustainably, and treating animals with respect. In that spirit, one very simple step can come from fast food giant McDonald's adding a healthy, plant-based item to the menu in the United States. Truly, there can be something for everyone! Please sign my petition to support adding a healthy, meatless option at McDonald's.

Petition to Taco Bell

Bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell

Fans and followers of Taco Bell, Inspired by the Beefy Crunch Movement and powered by our love for the Grilled Stuft Nacho, today we begin our movement to bring the Grilled Stuft Nacho back to Taco Bell. This movement will be aimed towards Taco Bell asking them to bring back a limited-time item we have seen twice in the past. Taco Bell has always used the fans and the consumers to figure out which limited-time items will be released and our plan is to use that to tell the company what we want. I ask all who enjoy Taco Bell to help in the effort to bring back this item. What is the Grilled Stuft Nacho?           The Grilled Stuft Nacho starts with a flour tortilla and is filled with seasoned beef, warm nacho cheese, zesty cheesy-jalapeno sauce, red tortilla strips, and sour cream. The tortilla is folded in the shape of a triangle to fit the shape of a large tortilla chip. When did Taco Bell serve the Grilled Stuft Nacho?           The Grilled Stuft Nacho has been released twice in Taco Bell limited-time offer history. (It is rare for an item to appear more than twice so this movement is important) The first time we've seen this as a LTO was December of 2013 and we last saw it May of 2015. I'd say we are due for another nationwide release. Why is this item so special?           I'm glad you asked. The key ingredient in the Grilled Stuft Nacho is the cheesy-jalapeno on the inside. This sauce has only ever been released with the Grilled Stuft Nacho and is indescribably delicious. The perfect mix of ingredients in the shape of a tortilla chip for the great deal of $1.49 each.  GOALS:           We are asking for Taco Bell to bring back the beloved Grilled Stuft Nacho as a limited-time item in the year of 2018. To make this happen we need YOU, the fans, to tell Taco Bell that this is what you want.
