I failed to mention ...

That "Food, Inc." is available to those of you who have Netflix. It is one of their Play-in-now options, so you don't even have to wait for it to come in the mail.

About a year ago, Adam and I watched another "food" documentary (of sorts) called "Super-size Me." I'd say that it is definitely less scientific; one guy decides to see what happens when he eats NOTHING but McDonald's food for a month (I think it's a month; was it 6 months? Surely, SURELY, it was only a month!) Anyway, it's appalling to watch, and a bit shocking to see the health effects on this young man, in such a short time.


  1. Okay, sure, it was gross. But NO ONE eats that way until they vomit and then continue eating. It was just so ridiculous. And no one I know eats that sheer quantity of fast food in that amount of time. It's supposed to get you by in a pinch.

  2. Yes, very true, M. It was a stupid thing for him to do. And I don't think most people assume they can eat only McDonald's. But, I know one teenage boy who is so picky he eats almost only Bojangles, and another whole family of 4 who NEVER eat at home (she does not cook) and their kids seem to be always sick. I think there are quite a few Americans out there who use fast food pretty often.


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
