Every time I resolve to start eating healthy, science comes along with a good reason not to.
Thank you, science.
Works for me. My motto is to always do the opposite of most mottos.

That’s a motto I can live with.

Very wise Peg, better safe than sorry – chocolate it is! (Beer is safe too right?).
I sure hope so! Otherwise, I’d be in trouble.
You and me both!
The alcohol in the beer kills any bad stuff. Isn’t life great?

To quote Jesse Pinkman, “Yeah science!”
Jesse is a wise person.
OMP! This is so very true!! MMOOOMMM – I need some peanut butter cups please. XOXO – Bacon
Has anyone ever tried peanut butter cups WITH bacon? What do you think?
Thump – that was me passing out… I say no way! But that’s because of obvious reasons – I’m an oinker. But dad on the other hoof is here contemplating the idea. I think I need to go into hiding. XOXO – Bacon
Oops. Didn’t mean to be insensitive.
Not at all my friend – I didn’t take it that way. I know peeps eat bacon… mom tells me all of the time I’m not that kind of piggy which is good huh? Snorts and oinks. XOXO – Bacon
I keep waiting to see a Listeria recall on Listerine mouthwash. But so far I’ve only seen them on some of my really unhealthy “10 Things You Should Never Write About” List type posts. 😉 Happy New Year Peg. Just finished enjoying your Target/Hamburger helper post… Lol.
Ha! Listeria DOES sound like it should come from Listerine. Thanks for reading.
I thought Listeria is the country where they make Listerine?
No, listeria is a special kind of hysteria that grips the public when it learns that the food supply isn’t safe.
Sometimes, life is good. Like just now as I’m heading out to buy lunch …
For god’s sake, take care of yourself, Elyse. Make it something good for you, like cheesecake and wine!
Thank god you caught me in time, Peg. I was going to get a salad. I ate Skittles and bacon instead.
Perfect! And for desert, chocolate cake! Today is chocolate cake day!
Yummmm. And I can have it since I’ve already had my protein.
Oh no – I missed Chocolate Cake Day! I feel like such a failure.
I’m disappointed in you Peg, but perhaps if you ingest an entire cake today you will “serve” your proper penance.
Here again, I’m ahead of my time and get no credit for it. I’ve been aboard the eat crap train for many years. On the menu tonight……chocolate chip cookies with a snickers bar chaser.
I tried to get aboard the Eat Crap Train, but I couldn’t run fast enough to catch up. I think it has to do with all the crap I eat.
You should have booked a ticket at birth, like MOI ..
Just another in a long list of regrets…
😉 At least you can wear dresses for normal people this way!
This is fucking brilliant. Little Debbie Nutty Bars are practically vitamins now.
That’s what I thought.
The only time in my life I suffered a serious injury was when I wrenched my back on a piece of equipment at the gym. That was 20 years ago and I still have to be careful about how I pick up a can of peaches that fell off the counter onto the floor. I never hurt my back watching TV. Not once.
You know, you’re right. The gym is clearly a lot more dangerous than in front of the tube. One rarely hears of hamstrings pulled while reaching for a big bowl ‘o popcorn.
That peaches part is pretty darn specific. Is peaches-can-strain a thing?
A sound and rational argument for staying safe and eating things that won’t get the bad germies…..at least I think not. 🙂
If it wasn’t logical, I wouldn’t go with it…at least I think not.
Oh dear, I better plead the fifth on this…
Surely you weren’t thinking of implying there could be any downside to this logic, Carrie?
No, no. Of course not.
“There is no love sincerer than the love of
*** food.” George Bernard Shaw
*** insert “junk”
True dat. Mr. Shaw was a true visionary to have foreseen our love of junk food.
Of course you should eat food with lots of preservatives, so it’ll preserve you! 🙂
Thanks, Peg, for saving me from another boring salad. *stuffs Twinkie in mouth*
Makes sense to me.
People keep talking about eating healthy, fresh, unprocessed foods like our ancestors, but our ancestors used to die at forty. I bet penicillin and antibiotics are even more processed than Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
And we like our penicillin processed. Even if our ancestors had some, they scraped it off of moldy bread in the pantry so they were goners anyway.
I have yet to see a vodka recall. I should be just fine.
Yeah, and that stuff is made from vegetables – potatoes, right? How come the rest of the health food industry can’t achieve such an admirable track record?
I know, right!!!
It makes perfect sense.
How I love what you are doing here on wordpress! So much so, that I am nominating you for the Versatile Blogger Award. Mazel Tov! Enjoy and have at it! I will keep on reading. You rock!
Thank you so much! I’m much too lazy to ever follow all the stuff you have to do to accept those awards, but I really appreciate the kind words.
It’s science, Susie.
Well, there were some recalls of Blue Bell ice cream, but since I always buy Haagen Dazs or Ben & Jerry’s, I’m not worried. Quality junk food!
Dang – there goes my theory! Not sure if Little Debbie qualifies as “quality” junk food. Eye of the beholder?
Good point, Peg. Only Reese’s for me from now on!
So happy you’ve seen the light.
Reblogged this on that little voice and commented:
Peg-o-leg’s Ramblings confirmed my beliefs.
Reblogged this…don’t want people to be misled about healthy foods.
You’re doing a public service.
Great sharing of much needed information. Wine and chocolate and I am all set. 😊
What more could anyone need?
Sorry, I am late to the party, but January 27 was also my birthday…I consumed an entire chocolate cake for National Chocolate Cake day and only just now awoke from the calorie induced coma. I have never injured myself eating “Death by Chocolate” ice cream (it’s a real thing and I can’t get it here in Florida) but I have, however, choked on a carrot slice. Need more proof than that? I think not.
Happy belated birthday! So sorry to hear about your carrot incident. Just one more bit of proof that healthy food is unhealthy.
I can’t believe I missed an important holiday like National Chocolate Cake day. Is it too late to celebrate?
I had a professor once that said the preservatives in food are great – logically, they should make us live forever!
Makes sense to me. Just one of the many benefits of junk food.
I have yet to see a vodka recall. I should be just fine.
Vodka is practically a health tonic.
