Work had a Harvest brunch recently, for everyone in the building. I went by to be social and grab a coffee, and to see what there was to eat. Two tables covered with food, all of it baked or involving grains and sugar. One fruit platter. So I had a coffee, and some fruit, and socialized, and because I don't make a big deal out of it, no one noticed I didn't eat anything different than anyone else.
I really was hoping there'd be something a bit more savoury though.

Big Fat Fiasco
Our bodies crave real food. We remain hungry as long as we refuse to eat real food, no matter how much junk we stuff into our stomachs. ~J. Stanton
The 6.5 month old I watch has started eating baby food, and FAR prefers it to formula (I don't blame her). I was feeding her a little leftover container of orange goo from the fridge today, I figured it was squash or something. Then I read the label. Macaroni and Cheese. MACARONI AND CHEESE PUREE. Keep in mind that this baby has had reflux since birth, is on meds for it, and needs the "sensitive" formula because she has lactose issues. Her mother is a DOCTOR, she should know better!

What am I doing? Depends on the day.
Elicit the following?:so we went to a McDonald's drive thru.
Also, nice to see someone else feed their dogs well.
Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
A guy I know who's recently started working out and trying to eat healthy: "I hadn't realised how much saturated fat a cake contains, it's worrying!"
IHOP is advertising a free deal for kids on Halloween night. It's a giant pancake with a happy face. The eyes are whipped cream with 2 oreo cookies. The nose is a strawberry. The mouth is whipped cream with candy corn spaced through it. Yeah like that's good for a kid.
I was at meetings all day yesterday with people from my team and people from the client team. My coworker had brought two dozen Dukin Doughnuts to, “put everyone in a good mood” She and a woman from the client team had 3 each and complained about it several times during out afternoon session.
Also during the afternoon session, one of the guys from the client team (who has cancer!!) was like, “I don't know how you people can drink that,” while pointing to a bottle of water and drinking a diet coke (he drinks diet coke CONSTANTLY).
Several others around the table started chiming in about “Oh water is so good for you no calories blah blah blah.” And he said, “Oh, well diet coke doesn’t have any calories.” To which I responded, “Yeah, but it has tons of chemicals.” He replied, “Without chemicals life would not exist.” (Such a smart ass.) And I said, “Sure, but I mean weird, scary chemicals that aren’t found in nature.” And mercifully that is where the conversation ended because I was THIS CLOSE to accidentally responding, “Sure, but I mean weird, cancer causing chemicals.”
Which would have been absolutely horrible (though hilarious for everyone not involved I’m sure).
