    Ask a non-paleo kid what french fries are made of, and you'll get a lot of (wrong) interesting answers!

    I feel like this defines basic CW ideas of health in this day and age. And also made me laugh A LOT.

    This is such a good point. But still I can't help inwardly sneering at what some people choose to put in their bodies.

    I saw a guy in the supermarket yesterday, I'd say he was in his 50's, he was pale and very puffy looking, and looked like someone who has tried for a long time to eat 'healthily'. His trolley was full of boxed weight-watchers foods and low-fat yoghurts (which I've realised are like eating liquid plastic, they are so procesed). There was nothing in his trolley that I'd buy. I almost spoke to him about it because he looked particularly unhealthy.

    Actually it is whipped up corn syrup with oil in it :-)

    Cool whip is made of water, corn syrup and high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated coconut and palm kernel oil, sodium caseinate, vanilla extract, xanthan and guargums, polysorbate 60 and betacarotene.

    No, it means more real food left for me.
