    Damn you. It's 10:00 at night and I suddenly, desperately want seafood alfredo (without noodles naturally).

      To quote Inigo Montoya: "healthy"... "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

        I am not feeling particularly sad or "superior" when I see other people's super processed foods in their shopping cart. I was exactly the same until 9 months ago and you know, I still could reproduce, have two healthy kids and have a rather happy life until 9 months ago when I changed my lifestyle. But I do feel MUCH MUCH better and my reference point for the "I-feel-good" state has shifted up dramatically. I do spot unhealthiness in many people when I go shopping, much more than before though. What can I personally do for this state of things ? Continue on my journey to reach my super-healthy-self, ... Everyone life's story is different and could well be a matter of "karma".

          It reminds me a lovely lady admin assistant that kept ordering vegetarian pizzas for me, because I had 'some food restrictions'. Who on earth wouldn't want a healthy vegetarian pizza? She always felt bad I was not eating at company's lunches/meetings or brought my own food.

          And I had a both who forbade me from eating fish in the office, period. Luckily, the boss became an even bigger boss and moved to the bossy-boss floor. I am back to eating sardines, salmon and other horrid fare.

            Every day I get a reminder of how great my co-workers are. Last week I warned everyone in my office suite that I was eating anchovies in here and to let me know if the smell got to them. They couldn't care less. The first time I heated my brussels sprouts at work I apologized to my boss for the smell and he replied the only problem with the smell was that it was making him hungry - he loves them.

              Ask a non-paleo kid what french fries are made of, and you'll get a lot of (wrong) interesting answers!

                I feel like this defines basic CW ideas of health in this day and age. And also made me laugh A LOT.

                  This is such a good point. But still I can't help inwardly sneering at what some people choose to put in their bodies.

                    I saw a guy in the supermarket yesterday, I'd say he was in his 50's, he was pale and very puffy looking, and looked like someone who has tried for a long time to eat 'healthily'. His trolley was full of boxed weight-watchers foods and low-fat yoghurts (which I've realised are like eating liquid plastic, they are so procesed). There was nothing in his trolley that I'd buy. I almost spoke to him about it because he looked particularly unhealthy.
                    Healthy is the new wealthy.

                      Actually it is whipped up corn syrup with oil in it :-)

                      Cool whip is made of water, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated coconut and palm kernel oil, sodium caseinate, vanilla extract, xanthan and guargums, polysorbate 60 and betacarotene.

                        No, it means more real food left for me.
