Anything With the Works

Anything With the Works

Whether it's pizza, burgers, pancakes, or ice cream, Feller makes sure to avoid any item that says it comes with the works. If she wants a burger, she purchases high-quality meat, adds lettuce and tomato, and avoids the ketchup and mayo, opting for mustard instead. As for the bun, she opts for the whole-wheat variety and asks for salad on the side instead of fries. If she's ordering a pizza, she gets tons of vegetable toppings instead of sausage or pepperoni, and if she's going to have ice cream, she looks for a brand that uses five ingredients or less to keep it as natural as possible.
