Honestly ~ ARE We That Stoo-pid?

I hope, I hope, I hope the answer for the general population is “no”. Otherwise, these fascists are going to be able to take over every morsel headed toward our ignorant, gaping maws.

Organics spreading to snack food aisles
Companies offer natural, organic versions of chips, cookies, mac & cheese
…That’s been good news for the food industry because it offers a new venue to potentially boost sales. But the trend raises concerns for some nutrition experts, who worry that people don’t realize that even organic snacks can still be packed with as many calories and fat as more traditional junk food.
“You still need to read the food label,” said Christine McKinney, a registered dietician with Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. “Just because it’s organic doesn’t meant it’s healthy.”

It’s the potato chip versus rice cake thing that always kicks my ass. Why does my brain always say “potato chip”?
I think I was abused as a child. So it’s not my fault, hence I’m not stoo-pid. I’m ‘decision challenged’.

    Because you’re a taterhead?
    Not that there’s anything wrong with being a taterhead, mind you. It’s just good to finally know where you are coming from.

    Because rice cakes taste like those cornstarch biodegradable (and water soluble) packing chips that have replaced styrofoam peanuts in many industrial shipping applications. When I was in grad school we looked at those things and said “hey they look like cheese doodles”, so we sprinkled cheese powder on them and got a gullible foreign grad student to eat one.

  3. How strange that my M-W ‘Word of the Day’ was ‘glasnost’…

    I used to munch rice cakes while dieting SOLELY because they were tasteless. Filling, but tasteless. That way, I (usually) avoided overeating.

  5. If it doesn’t have salt and grease, it’s not filling.

    If by “filling” you mean “replete with extended stomach”, I agree. That’s about what it takes with rice cakes.

    I think they now have organic Wise potatoe chips for those of us that want our grease and salt pure.
