    On a side note to corn, Costco sells organic tortilla chips. Since they are organic they can't be made with GMO corn. Does that mean there is not GMO corn still in North America?
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    I believe you, but I don't believe the labelling. I'm never eating corn again, period. Monsanto can kiss my rosy red ass in Macy's window.

    Oh, yeah. To the op, potatoes.

    Carrot sticks. They make a better weapon to use against the idiot holding a gun to my head.

    I'd probably pick the popcorn. Less (nasty) calories compared to the same quantity of chips - I think, and no nasty oil.

    I despise popcorn, so that's not even a choice.
    (Seriously, even the smell makes me nauseous because I'm allergic to the cottonseed oil movie theaters pop it in. Get a migraine and nausea after popcorn most of your life and you won't want it either. I don't even go to the theater very often because of the popcorn smell.)

    I bought some organic popping corn and pop it in coconut oil. Maybe 3 cups worth (popped) every 2 or 3 months.

    I count that as part of my 20% and refuse to feel bad about it.

    I'd eat corn all day every day over canola oil. Societies have been consuming corn and maize for thousands of years, and properly prepared (nixtamalized corn) is pretty benign. Canola oil is a new invention. The heart disease curve mirrors the refined vegetable oils curve. It's no contest IMO.

    In terms of a whole grain, if I had to eat one, corn would be right behind brown rice. Obviously white rice would be my first choice, but it's not a whole grain, so...
    Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
