Canadian quick-service restaurant servings of non-fried vegetables are up more than 10% over last year, while total quick-service traffic remained flat, according to The NPD Group and Consumer Reports on Eating Share Trends.

Environics Research Group conducted its online survey Aug. 12-15 of 501 Canadians who had eaten at quick service restaurants over the past four weeks. The survey found that while 92% consider themselves meat eaters, six of 10 said they have increased their servings of vegetables. Of those who choose vegetable options, 40% said flavor is the most important factor.

I have tried the mediterranean wrap and I am surprised that there arent any sliced olives in it, a staple of the mediterranean diet.

As a vegetarian the past 18 years, I decided to try the Santa Fe wrap. Holy crap is it every good but I just looked up the nutritional value and its insane. Why can't McDonald's come up with vegetarian options that are healthy!? Doesn't make sense. You want to have more vegi options yet they're high in fat calories etc. frustrating.

I was disappointed in this over laden with dressing wrap. The veggies were there but I did not see any humus. In fact there were little crunchier tidbits that looked and tasted like batter bits. I'm sure it was very high fat with too much dressing as usual. I expected the humus spread on my wrap. Olives would also be a nice Mediterranean touch!
