Comments, Cool Whip and Cream Cheese none of those things have anything in common except that they all start with "C".

If any of you have read my blog recently you will see that I deleted one. It made me feel better to write it out and now the necessity for having it posted is gone.

I had written about being 100 pounds overweight and how I hate it but feel helpless to change. But...I know that I can change because I don't have to depend just upon myself. "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." So is it Jesus' fault I'm overweight? No, it most certainly isn't. Jesus speaks to me in a "still, small voice" or through a friend, or through my family members and I choose to ignore that quite often. If I wouldn't get defensive when my husband says something that would certainly help. But those inward feelings arise and my attitude is "you can't tell me what to eat." Ahh, that is so bad.

So I'll carry on, keep exercising, keep thinking about what I'm eating and hopefully get rid of some of this excess poundage I'm carrying around. Isn't it sad to think of all the people in the world who may get one meal a day and yet I can eat like there is no tomorrow? Makes you think, doesn't it?

Comments: An anonymous person commented on a blog from way, way back. Thank you.
Cool Whip: It'll never taste like the real whipped cream.
Cream Cheese: Yummy!

One thing I've been reading is a book by Michael Pollan - "In Defense of Food" - in it, he talks about the whole evolution of "food science" and how it's substituted marketing-driven processed foods for healthy, time-honored diets.

He suggests that the new pseudo-scientific "healthy" processed foods carry might actually be unhealthy, and that by reducing our needs to a simple set of chemicals, we've lost the very essence of food, and confused our bodies.

It's a great book and it's affecting how I view food.

I also read his other book - "The Omnivore's Dilemma" - which is about how food is grown.

Hi Phil,

Good words to hear. I read The Omnivore's Dilemma and it changed my thinking about things! I'll have to read In Defense of Food.

Thanks for commenting.


Kitchen Cabinet Refacing said...

Kitchen cabinets are something you use every day, yet you probably never take the time to appreciate them. They seem simple enough, but there is actually more than plenty involved behind the scenes. There are many things to consider regarding kitchen cabinet refacing, cabinets materials, finishes, door designs, and even information on hardware.
