I was at my MIL's last night and we were talking (my SIL and BIL were there too) about how you're seeing more boys with 'man boobs' (but they aren't fat!) and girls maturing faster and how it was all being caused by the hormones and chemicals in our foods (I was just listening). I said, not at my house. I buy clean meat whenever I can, and it's getting far easier to find, so that's what's in my house now.
Good so far, right?
My MIL then proceeds to give my daughter one of those packages of fake cheese and crackers. Ugh.
Talking on msn with the boyfriend just now:
Khris says (20:58):
*Well, it was a white bread sandwich with crisps meat and mayonaisse in it x]
******(*)Pixie(@)Kitten(*) says (20:58):
Khris says (20:58):
*I know you'd class that as kinda junky considering the bread and stuff so,.
Khris says (20:59):
*But food's getting worse right? That's why we're trying to cling on to healthier ways of eating, because we all know the way it's going. We're afraid of losing that which extends our life, to the stuff that we know harms us.
Khris says (21:00):
*Buuutt... by eating junk, i'm sacrificing my body for my children, and their childrens children, etc.
*Because through the process of evolution, our bodies will eventually learn and adapt to accomodate for the crap, and we'll all be fine.
Khris says (21:01):
*So i'm doing a good thing really.
For the genius he is, he's an idiot sometimes. -facepalm-

lol, yeah but the food might be contributing to the destruction of ecosystems AND your genetic health!
my primal journal:
on a survey I took today:
How many of the last 30 days have you eaten a healthy breakfast (e.g. whole grains, low fat dairy, and fresh fruit)
um.... Well, technically I ate a healthy breakfast EVERY day, but MY definition of healthy doesn't match yours....
Not really a CW moment but a friend posted on facebook what she ate for dinner:
"Pizza, burger & chips, onion rings and garlic mushrooms"
Even when I was following SAD (or the British equivalent) I wouldn't eat that!!! There is a lot of deep frying involved in that - the mushroom will have been in batter like the onion rings =/
I don't get how people don't equate their diet to causing them to be sluggish and irritable and just generally not feeling in great health. Eating that is going to make you feel like shit!
Overheard two new coworkers at lunch talking about healthy eating today. One of them said that her boyfriend who is studying to be a chemist told her that "women shouldn't eat white bread because it turns to sugar in their bodies".
I couldn't help but stick my nose in and ask if it does something different in a man's body. She said, "yes, men just digest it like any other carbohydrate."
*FACEPALM OF DEATH*
Sorry ladies, I guess you're out of luck. I'll be over here eating my bologna sandwich on white bread, thanks to my magical carbohydrate blocking penis.
Well now I really do have penis envy!Sorry ladies, I guess you're out of luck. I'll be over here eating my bologna sandwich on white bread, thanks to my magical carbohydrate blocking penis.
