Of course I have my opinions, but in general, I choose to leave all politics – even food ones – off of this blog.
However…this is just…wrong…
I never go down the baby aisle but I usually DO swing by the candy one to see if there’s anything new. I was shocked to see that at this particular Ralph’s, both were in the same section. What are we teaching our children?
I still bought a bag.
Probably the reason I don’t talk about food politics is because I’m well aware that I’m a hypocrite, as I’m discovering most people who work in this world are.
Even her famous rival, Anthony Bourdain, can’t seem to keep his mouth off of “the food that is killing us.”
I watched him ingest some if it on his new show, “The Layover.” And I know this stuff isn’t “healthy,” because I’ve experienced a lot of it first-hand.

I cannot tell you how many folks I know who (literally) write the book about organic, all-natural, locally grown and sustainable food – but don’t practice what they preach on a regular basis. They can’t. If you were to be THAT perfect, you wouldn’t be a human being.
Personally, I try to be conscious and live by my ideals. But for the most part, I can’t overanalyze things, because black-and-white, all-or-nothing thinking is what got me in trouble for many years. Yes, I am aware of environmental, human, animal, and health factors when it comes to what I choose to support and ingest. But is that the case 100% of the time? Not even close. Does that mean I need to feel guilty or less worthy if I can’t?
I don’t really have a point here (see this is why I don’t bring this crap up usually) but I can tell you this – after merely thinking about what I was going to write in this post, I lost my craving for the Aisle 4 Lollipop.
Thought for food?
