Are directing this to Americans only, or are you directing this to the general PF community?
I'm lucky I live in a country where fresh produce which is cheap, great quality and readily available. Also, there are no American fast food companies in Laos. The government won't allow it. The Pizza Company, which is a Thai based company has opened two pizza restaurants in the last 12 months. There have also been a couple pizza restaurants opened by locals,, I'd rather eat at these.
90% of my diet is home cooked, we have a housekeeper who is diet conscious and a fabulous cook. My diet mainly consists of veges, fruit, fish, chicken and rice. She also does western styled meals based around vegetables, fish, chicken,,, including pasta, potatoes etc.
When we eat out, we prefer to eat local foods. These are mainly based on fish, chicken, rice and vegetables. I can't remember the last time I ate a hamburger, and chips (you American call French fries) rarely.
We live in a city which has a huge variety of food and restaurants. Whatever you want is available, and really cheap. My wife and I can go out, spend less than 15 bucks including a beer (or wine) for a two course meal. A bowl of Lao noodle soup with beef and vegetables can be had for around $1.50.

As the warriors turn into fools.
And the dice are thrown on sacred ground.
And they move closer to the truth"
