Please read this article. The most shocking was how they treated ground meat products with ammonia to kill pathogens. Know what you are eating! I want to be sick

    Already saw this and told my partner we will never eat burgers from fast food again. Makes us feel sorta sick. Only safe food is what you can really see and cook yourself and grow in your garden.

    Ugh. There's a reason we try to buy our meat organic as much as we can. Not only are their issues with processing meat, but a lot of meat at the supermarkets are loaded with hormones and other chemicals. Bleah emoticon

    I was surprised though that the fake bacon bits are actually higher in calorie than the real ones. We always get real bacon bits (or make our own, on the rare occasion we have bacon at home) because my husband is allergic to the fake; guess that's not a bad thing! And interesting that turkey bacon, which I know people swear by, isn't much better either. We buy real bacon when we buy bacon--we do it so rarely that I don't really feel guilty about the indulgence.

    The one about the fruit on the bottom yogurt is just tragic for me, though! I love the fruit on the bottom yogurt for breakfast in the summer--it's something I can get down (I have a really hard time eating breakfast) and it's tasty and has protein, and calcium etc. But I hate hate hate unsweetened yogurt--just can't stand the stuff. So I don't know what I would substitute for it.

    The more I read, the more interested I become in clean eating! Organic, whole foods that I can cook from scratch! I need to get a copy of "Eat this, not that"!

    This isn't as gross as some things I have read. I watch a lot of documentaries!!!! Holy monkey balls is it ever disgusting. I just recently watched a new doc on GMO foods (genetically modified). It is boycotted out of the UK but North America as a whole allows it. WITHOUT CLEAR LABELING!!!! Something needs to be done. I'm so determined to be self sufficient. SCREW diapers, pre packaged foods, canned foods, etc. They aren't getting any money from me.

    Very interesting article. I like that the real versions of each thing made with real ingredients are so much healthier than the "low-fat" versions.
