Shouldn’t there be some sort of law against having more than 2 meetings on the Friday before a long weekend? That’s what I think.
I admit it, I do eat packaged foods sometimes. Freshly prepared is better, of course, but you can’t beat packaged stuff for convenience and portion control. I eat a Smart Ones meal just about every day for lunch. I also incorporate “lite” products into my diet pretty often. Fat-free sour cream is one of the greatest inventions of our time, in my opinion, and I don’t remember the last time I ate full-fat mayonnaise (oh wait, yes I do. It was on a BLT at Denny’s parents’ house.). Still, I do draw the line. I don’t like to eat foods (other than, say, water) that have zero calories. It just seems to bend the laws of nature, and if there’s one thing I know about bending the laws of nature, it’s that it always come back to bite you in the ass. Haven’t you seen The Butterfly Effect? I haven’t, but it might have been about something like that. Final Destination, too, I think.
These products the sort of thing I try to avoid. If they’re fat-free, calorie-free, and carb-free, what on earth is in them? OK, I found the nutrition information and ingredients. The “bleu cheese” dip (quotes mine; I’m not sure why they don’t have to put them in quotes, because I’m not seeing any actual bleu cheese involved) contains water, vinegar, salt, and lots of things I can’t pronounce. I wonder if there are actual lumps in it, to mimic actual cheese. I kind of hope not. Oat fiber seems to be a popular ingredient in these dips. Very peculiar. Also, someone should remind their web designer that the millennium has, in fact, taken place, and it’s ok to move on now.
I am concerned by the fact that the chocolate syrup and pancake syrups do not have ingredient lists available.
