Organic Thoughts

Wow - So sorry for the time away. Pretty crazy week what with Easter and all. I actually ended up going to a pretty ritzy place for brunch. Can't complain about that. However instead of giving you a long drawn out update on the minute details of my week I think, instead, I'll let you in on something I've been considering.

I loathe - with the deepest loathing possible - all varieties of "fat-free", "sugar-free", "carb-free", and essentially "food-free" food. Seriously, if you find yourself victim to the sadistic notions that depriving yourself of the necessary nutrients in food will allow you to eat more of it without gaining weight you have been strongly misled. It does not matter how few or how many calories that triple glazed, cream filled, sprinkle-heaven doughnut of yours has. It's still a doughnut. If you eat 47 of them you will get fat. That's right I said it. You will get fat. Life's a bitch that way - and she wont put up with any of our nifty little chemical/enzyme tricks. Go right ahead and take all the diet pills you want - whatever pounds you drop will be replaced with water weight and eventually long term fat. F A T. Fat.

Now I don't mean to be a downer about all of this - I just cant help but be amazed at the ignorance of some people over the matter. For example: those who think drinking diet soda (as opposed to non-diet soda) will do much good. Here's a thought - drink some water. Hell - drink flavored water if you must. The fake sweeteners and chemical additives in diet soda are far more harmful than the sugar in regular soda. So Ha.

Also - "I Cant Believe It's Not Butter". Great. So what exactly is it? No one knows....and that's how they like it. Truth be told if the large majority of society knew what was in their food - and the proven side effects of such additives - there would be a mass reverting to home grown vegetables.

Speaking of vegetables I have added considerably to what I plan to plant in my garden and am eagerly awaiting the last frost date (apparently somewhere near April 26th in my area) so that I can start sowing seeds!

Organic all the way.

More soon.

That is SO True!!

I have become very strict recently about trying to only eat foods with actual ingredients. Real fat and actual sugar is what our bodies can use and if we just eat less (aka the right amounts) we will be healthier & won't find our cells playing a guessing game of what to do with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid...
