    wah wah wah waaaahhhh

    Based on eth food pyramid. So a piece of bread 'low fat, low sugar, high fibre' will probably get 5 stars.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

        Speaking of canned tuna, I went into Trader Joe's and they have this tiny section for pets. I saw "Tuna for Cats" and I thought, oh great, maybe my cats will like this. Of course there are like 20 ingredients on the can of 'tuna' so I guess adding a bunch of extra shit makes it okay for cats? Anyway, I go to the aisle and buy the regular tuna (you know, for humans) and the ingredients are "Tuna, Water." Only an additional $0.60 for what works out to (probably) the same amount of actual tuna per oz (considering all the shit that is added to "Tuna for Cats" probably waters it down).

        Kitty is getting a real treat tonight.
        I don't know what the ingredients are in that, but cats need to eat far more than just muscle meat. Even high-quality kibble has lots of ingredients. Giving cats a raw food diet involves being very careful about their taurine intake, among other things. Cats naturally will eat both green grass and every organ they can- often even a whole animal, guts, brains, heart, liver, lungs, etc. Feeding them only tuna or muscle meat is a recipe for deficiencies.

I took a friend grocery shopping (what someone--a MAN no less--who wants to learn how to feed themselves?!), and he wanted to buy some butter. At first, he went for the big grey tub of country crock. I educated him. Okay, really I just asked if he'd ever had real butter. I got this the next morning:

            Actually, potatoes are magic. Butter is the pixie dust that activates it.

            Which, I guess, means cows are actually pixies...

              This is the new name for trans-fat. They add the substances separately so that the trans-fats form in the food, that way they can say they added no trans-fat. It's like a purple cookie saying it contains no purple because they added blue and red.

                  How annoying, but guess we should just expect to be screwed over by food companies. Here is one article.

                          Exactly. It's easier that way. ://

                          • My step mom just started eating her Nutrisystem TV dinner meals

                            Wonder how much she paid for that, jeez. I think for her birthday I'll get her Good Calories, Bad Calories or something. Know of any other good books? It's kinda sad too. She has her degree in ag science and works in politics now, supporting the ag community however she can. Figure she'd be into buying their products instead of this stuff :/

                            • As I'm engaged in sleep-related exploration these days, I'm coming up with all sorts of sleep-related "funny CW moments". The nightlights on sale at the store - all of them use white lightbulbs, which all are guaranteed to reduce your melatonin production and keep you from sleeping. There were even some blue nightlights on sale (blue light is what cuts melatonin the most and makes your brain think it's daylight).

                              My father proudly told me that he put an automatic light in the bathroom so that every time you walk into the bathroom, 6 white lightbulbs come on. I had to explain to him why this was a bad idea if either of my parents gets up at night to use the bathroom. Both my parents have trouble sleeping.

                                Exactly! Same here. I don't want to have to get a degree in biochemistry just to figure out what to eat. I'd rather just deal with the cooking and let my body's natural processes deal with the biochemistry.
