Extras

Coincidentally zip.ca sent me Super Size Me this week. Figures since it was on tv New Year's Day.  But I figured it was probably edited for TV and watched it again. There were a few things that I don't remember seeing on tv.  And then there are all the extras.  Can I just say EW to The Smoking Fry extra? I don't know what was more disgusting - how grossly mouldy all the burgers got or how the french fries did not...

Also this week CBC aired Diet Confidential.  I've seen it before and I can't say that I paid strict attention to it either time but enough to know that the hype and spin for diets is more frightening the more I think about it.

And then a book I just read, The Cinderella Pact, had a lot to do with losing weight and eating healthfully.  There was also a lecture in there about high fructose corn syrup.

Right now I'm so turned off by the thought of junk food I could vomit.  And I'm kinda sorry that I gave away my copy of Fast Food Nation. I'd kinda like to read it again.

But on a positive note my grocery store finally seems to have baby spinach again. I couldn't find it for months after the e-coli outbreak from the California spinach last fall.  I'm very happy that I have spinach again. I used it for salads but pretty much any place you'd use lettuce - in sandwiches, tacos, etc.

I think I'm about to break into a "healthy" phase. Not that I've even had a spectacularly unhealthy diet. Actually that's not totally true.  When I was in Montreal and working overtime the company would buy us all dinner but it frequently was really greasy junk - like greasy pizza and fries etc.  I probably ate more junk food in a month during those times than I now eat in a whole year.

Now I think I'm going to go make myself a salad.  And figure out what the heck I'm going to have for dinner.
