  • I was standing in the dairy section of the grocery store while waiting for my daughter in the bathroom.
    I counted three types or brands of butter, and 34 different brands or types of margarine. Wha???
    I hate margarine; that stuff is so nasty.
    Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:
    34yrs old, 5'5"
    CW: 163lbs (07/2014)
    GW: 135lbs or less
    Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)

    • On the fashion shoot on Thursday the girl we shot had 2 large donuts and an apple salad.

      -_-;

      She has a hot figure so I guess it works for her...

      • I work in a dairy department in a grocery store.

        Story 1: A woman was asking about the difference between cage-free and organic and "certified humane" eggs. As we are talking she says, "I'm just trying to do the best I can. I was vegan for years, until my fingernails fell off."

        Story 2: A woman was asking for a specific flavor of a specific brand of yogurt for her baby. I didn't have it, but I had that same flavor as a "baby" yogurt. She looks at it and says, "Whole milk? I haven't given my baby whole milk in over a year!"

          I was in a big supermarket in Dundee today, I was looking for the offer on butter (sometimes the Kerrygold, normal price 1.60, is on at 2 for 2). The butter is in one section, the margarine is along a bit, twice as big, but between them are the "spreadable butters". If you look at the ingredients they are like buttermilk, vegetable oil, emulsifier, skim milk powder, colouring... and yes Kerrygold do one too...

            So no actual butter in the spreadable butter? Not that that would come as a surprise, though.

            Add:
            My God, this is gettin insane. In my grocery story, I saw a tub of "whole French curd cheese" ("whole" as in the whole in whole milk, so full-fat). I felt like trying it and checked the ingredients.
            The first one was skim milk.

              Fat Free Land O Lakes half and half.

              How do you do that?

                  I've often wondered about that. How is that possible? MAGIC!

                  • I went cruising HEB last night for dinner fud and made the mistake of looking at the ingredients on pancake syrup (not maple syrup.) HFCS, CS, sugar, fake sugar, water, fake sugar, WTF is THAT?, starch, petroleum food coloring, and preservatives. So, for me: pain, pain,sugar, pain, water, and more pain. Uhhh... we're gonna go with no.
                    Grabbed the organic maple syrup instead. Ingredients: thickened tree sap.
                    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!"

                        Almost every colour is based on cultural appropriation. In some areas of India they used to see black and dark blue as the same colour, calling it simply 'dark', this confusion is brought to light when you ask Hindus what colour Krishna's skin was (dark, black or blue). (Krishna - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Magenta was only discovered in 1859. (Shades of magenta - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Whiskas blended and copyrighted their own version or purple. (Green light for Whiskas purple trade mark | Managing Intellectual Property) Until recently, pink was seen as a form of light red and, therefore, as an energetic, sexual, virile or manly colour. (The History of Pink for Girls and Blue for Boys | Gender Focus) Ancient Greeks thought the sky was 'bright', not 'blue'. (Why Isn't the Sky Blue? - Radiolab Blue - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Those last links also try to explain why blue, despite being a primary colour and one of our 'cone-colours', seems to be the hardest one for humans to pinpoint, describe and name.

                        • I made Meatza over the weekend and had half of it as a left over for lunch yesterday. I had some carrots along with it for the vitamins. My co-worker commented of the contrast between the two
                          Him: "So that's two fo the opposits. all the grease and fat and than healthy carrots.

                          My carrots weren't biological and I always cut off the part that has been above ground. you can just taste the chemicals on it, so I answer.
                          "Well, this meat is grass-fed and contains tons of healthy fats, the cheese on it is full-fat mozzarella so more healthy fats, it has pineapple and pepper in it. so that's the vitamins, and than I have carrots from a factory. completely treated with all sorts of chemicals, so I have to throw away the top part because you can just taste the chemicals even after washing them. So yeah, the carrots are the least healthiest on my lunch."

                          There was absolute silence while I enjoyed eating that fatty stuff...
                          My story, My thought....

                          It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

                            • This happened a while ago... I found a box of Girl Guide cookies on the table.

                              Me: "What are these abominations doing here?"

                              Mom: "They came to the door! I couldn't say no."

                              Me: "Too bad you can't just donate.... so what's the plan for these? Are we feeding them to dad?"

                              Mom: "...Well... yes, that's probably what will happen."

                              Me: "Okay then."

                              Dad is our garbage disposal these days. We're both horrible.

                                I used to run scout/girl guide bottle drives for about 10 years, and every year I would get multiple boxes of girl guide cookies and bags and bags of scout popcorn. I don't think there's any other food I've ever eaten that makes me feel as terrible as I felt after eating those cookies and popcorn. Scary stuff.

                                Any you can donate without taking any cookies. Most people wouldn't think of saying no to the cookies, though!
