You are what you eat?
You are what you eat?

We all fall victim (or at least I have) to a quick fast food run.  Well I was a little shocked when I discovered  artist and photographer Sally Davies McDonalds Happy Meal picture project.  She left a Happy Meal exposed in her kitchen for 6 months and astonishingly the shape and form barely changed, no mold, no decomposing, Sally said "The only change that I can see is that it has become hard as a rock".  In response to Davies' project, McDonald's spokeswoman Theresa Riley had this statement:  "McDonald's hamburger patties in the United States are made with 100% USDA-inspected ground beef," Riley wrote. "Our hamburgers are cooked and prepared with salt, pepper and nothing else -- no preservatives, no fillers. Our hamburger buns are baked locally, are made from North American-grown wheat flour and include common government-approved ingredients designed to assure food quality and safety. ... According to Dr. Michael Doyle, Director, Center for Food Safety at the University of Georgia, 'From a scientific perspective, I can safely say that the way McDonald's hamburgers are freshly processed, no hamburger would look like this after one year unless it was tampered with or held frozen.'"  Are you what you eat?  Hmmm, what do you think does this food seem like real food to you when natural produce molds when left out?

Laugh and the World Laughs With You - Dawn Schnee
Laugh and the World Laughs With You - Dawn Schnee
SATURDAY, JUNE 20, 2009

When Alex was three weeks old I was longing for, nay, dying for, a schedule of some kind. A bright (early) Monday morning I woke with the determination to find something that resembled a routine.
Alex was napping someplace that was NOT in my arms or on my chest, so I went downstairs, took out smoothie ingredients from the fridge - yogurt, milk, strawberries - and from the cabinet - whey powder, flax seed, peanut butter, oatmeal.
I made a yummy, delicious smoothie, I poured coffee, I made waffles (in the toaster), I poured orange juice. Complete breakfast bliss. I put everything away, went upstairs, Alex was awake, we talked about food and how it smelled, then we took a walk and watched some Sesame Street (with “Donald Grump” and “Omagrossa” and Elmo stole DG’s wig and DG said that was no problem, he had more, and whipped out a new one, so both DG and Elmo were wearing DG wigs.) This lovely morning gave me hope that Alex and I could enjoy more mornings like this, but of course, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings quickly became clustersmacks of real life instead of a cereal commercial. Thursday morning I woke and walked downstairs to make my smoothie. I took out smoothie ingredients from the fridge - milk, strawberries - and from the cabinet - whey powder, flax seed, yogurt, peanut butter, oatm…… whoa….. yogurt doesn’t belong in the cabinet. EWWWWWWWWWWWW!

Hungry Girl
Hungry Girl
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, 2008

So, I will go right ahead and admit it. I’m hungry and I love good food. Who doesn’t? But between seeing pictures of stick skinny celebs and being tempted with muffins and donuts every morning, today’s world has become somewhat of a nutritional hell. We all want to look great without having to sacrifice the foods that just taste good. And if you become a religious visitor of http://www.hungrygirl.com  , you can! This website is absolutely amazing for the average women who love food and have no intention of giving it up (but still want to look awesome in that bikini!). The site gives suggestions of low-fat, low-calorie snacks that aren’t low in taste. Since I love to cook and bake, my favorite part is where they take traditionally unhealthy recipes and give you a new recipe that taste great but slashes off the unneeded fat and calories. Check it out and eat up!
