I am not the sort of person who gets up in arms about much stuff. I have a lot of siblings and you learn pretty quickly to choose your battles wisely. But there are a few things for which I will make a stand. (And one thing for which I will ALWAYS make a stand and that is Jesus). One of these few things is the topic of nutrition.
No, I am not a nutritionist, but I do have some training in the field and I am a registered nurse and I have done a lot of reading on the topic. So, uh, if you were to show up to my parent-baby group and tell a bunch of newly-minted sleep-deprived mothers that the best way to eat well and to get their body back was through protein powder and fat-free cottage cheese I would maybe get a little bit annoyed. Okay, maybe a lot annoyed. Have you ever read the ingredients of protein powder? No? I didn’t think so because it isn’t actually readable. I like ingredients like this: eggs, flour, spices…not like this: dissodiom chloridateded something or other. Do you really want to put that in your body? And if that is the answer to life, the universe and everything you ought to eat what did they do 100 years ago to stay healthy? I ask these questions with the utmost respect. I know that to you this is the way to do it and that you run a business about these sorts of things, but you really make my heart sad when you tell people that chemicals and fake sugars are healthier than fruits and vegetables.
