          I'm thoroughly chastised but at the same time I'll forever think of cookies now as satan's communion wafers.
          See, now that's even more incentive to eat them. Dammit!
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            Someone at my wifes work gave her a Freddo Frog (you have them in the US?) as a little xmas treat - she called me yesterday racked with nerves "I just want to eat it, I need it, I must have it!" - my standard answer "I won't be angry with you if you eat the Freddo......just disappointed!"

            ....but seriously I told her to eat the darn thing - I am so going to call them Satan's Wafers now, that is awesome.

            • Freddo
              From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
              Freddo



              Freddo (sometimes called Freddo Frog) is a brand of chocolate bar currently manufactured by Cadbury. It is sold in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom and Zimbabwe.
              Each chocolate is shaped like a cartoon frog, standing up and dressed. Though primarily available as solid milk fingers, certain versions of the product have a cream or caramel centered flavouring. These include Dairy Milk, white chocolate, rice crisp, strawberry, peppermint, Crunchie (with bits of Cadbury's 'Crunchie' bar put in), pineapple (Only in 'twin-packs'), "Rainbow Crunch" and "Milky Top" (the top half being white chocolate and the bottom milk chocolate, in the style of Cadbury's "Top Deck" products).

                • While running through the supermarket yesterday, I was checking out the various bacon packages to find the thickest cut bacon. The bacon display is right next to the huge section of Lunchables. Along comes executive Dad with his son, somewhere in the 10-11 year old range. They belly up to the Lunchables section, and Dad scans the prices "OK, these are 3 for $7, so go ahead and pick out 3."

                  In my head: "WTF? School is out tomorrow for 1.5 weeks. Who lets their kid eat a lunchable at home?" Then realized that I was putting too much faith into others.

                  Kid begins to pick up various packages, and starts reading the back. From Dad "What are you doing?" Kid replies "I'm looking to see which of these are healthier."

                  At that point I left because spontaneous combustion would have been in my immediate future if I stayed, and that is definitely not healthy!

                    • I've been selling my 60 year old father on paleo eating. This morning my sister called me and asked me why I was trying to "kill our father with all that fat." She lectured him not to listen to my "crazy diet fad" (that I've been talking about for 2 years argh) and that he needs to be eating low fat.

                      Thankfully, when I called my dad, he just said "You told me I can eat steak and bacon, OBVIOUSLY you're the daughter I'm doing to listen to!"

                      • I'm actually kind of impressed that the kid was reading the nutrition labels at least.

                          • On the coach. Large-ish woman in her 50s-60s. One of those ones you KNOW is the "advice-giver" in the family.
                            We were talking and she offered a sweet. I said I couldn't eat refined sugar. Later on we were talking about dinners. I said I'd be having some root veg mash with butter and cheese and stuff (in the end we had fried beef in butter, and the veg unmashed, but oh well). Reaction "Can't have sugar, but ALL THAT FAT?"
                            Response: *resisting Primal-rage urges* "Fat doesn't really harm me."
                            Guided it into how it's actually the more artificial and processed foods that harm you, so the fats that are bad for you are hydrogenated and how eliminating ALL fats because studies have shown that hydrogenated ones are bad would be like stopping eating fruit and veg because studies show refined sugar is bad.
                            She changed the topic...

                            She also wanted to know if I'd received medical support in cutting out grains. I said that I'd done my research and the general rule doctors use is just "try it and see" anyway. Silence and new topic. *heavy sigh*

                            Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.

                            • I'm pleased to be able to post in this thread. I was at a family member's house for a nice festive dinner. It was pretty good homecooked food, French onion soup for starter (no rolls), wild salmon with vegetables and salad for main course (I had a roast potato to be polite). Dessert was a very dark home-baked chocolate brownie topped with whipped cream & a cherry. I thought "shall I refuse or accept"? They perhaps saw my moments hesitation and started on about how it was a new recipe, the first time they had made it, it had 80% dark chocolate in it as well as cocoa powder... so I went for it. Strangely unsatisfying. Then the final boast at the end... "it's totally fat free!"

                              • So sad. I made a cheesecake for work using all natural, mostly organic ingredients. It went over well. I even had a couple people that didn't touch it initially decide to take a piece once they learned it was all natural and mostly organic. You'd like the brownies I make...Kerrygold, coconut flour, organic cocoa powder, 80% or higher dark chocolate melted into it...I don't make them often, but if you're going to do it, do it right.
