Not exactly the Mediterranean diet

It's pretty shocking how bad the food is here in the US:
The horseshoe sandwich, a platter-size, open-face Springfield original, consisting of bread, meat and a pile of French fries smothered in a thick cheese sauce.

Field House adds an extra layer of grease by stuffing the meat and fries into a tortilla, which stands in for the bread, and dunking the mass in a deep-fryer before ladling on the cheese sauce. The resulting colossus, called the "Shoe Burrito," weighs in at 2,700 calories—the equivalent of five Big Macs.
The sad thing is that even if you wanted to eat healthy, there are just no options in many places. Luckily there's a Whole Foods and a Trader Joes near to where we are staying.
