Let me introduce myself. My name is Mark Sisson. I’m 63 years young. I live and work in Malibu, California. In a past life I was a professional marathoner and triathlete. Now my life goal is to help 100 million people get healthy. I started this blog in 2006 to empower people to take full responsibility for their own health and enjoyment of life by investigating, discussing, and critically rethinking everything we’ve assumed to be true about health and wellness...Tell Me More
The Fuming Fuji is outraged at the marketing of toxic food, especially when it is aimed at the small fry. This week, the Fuming Fuji has decided to have a serious problem with cheese and crackers.
Oh, Fuming Fuji, you say, I can’t believe you would have a problem with this healthy, natural snack! Maybe you should get your blood pressure checked, Fuji.
The Fuming Fuji says no!
The claim: Cheese and crackers provide calcium, protein, and fiber to children! I thought cheese and crackers were healthy for kids. What’s not to love?
The catch: Yes, Fuji agrees, the two most processed foods on earth are a wonderful combination for children everywhere. In fact, here is another great one: how about pepperoni slices on potato chips?
The comeback: That sounds kind of good, actually.
The conclusion: The Fuji did not just hear this! Cheese is reformed baby cow food. In fact, if the Fuji thinks about it too much, bad things will surely happen. Beware, oh ye lovers of blubber & biscuits, beware. Slapping cheddar curd cakes atop dead ground grain squares is not a wise or nutritious practice. The Fuji admits it is probably fun, though (but not as fun as fuming, which surpasses all other verbs).
The catchphrase: Cheese & Cracker conglomerate may squash the Fuji, but he still got the juice!
Disclaimer: Mark Sisson and the Worker Bees do not necessarily endorse the views of the Fuming Fuji. We are appropriately dazzled, however.
