We watched “That Sugar Film” last night. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it as a great look at sugar in our culture, not unlike “Fed Up”. So this morning I started out with what I had in the house since I hadn’t been to the store. Scrambled eggs, potatoes…maybe salsa? I went to grab my favorite salsa from the fridge, decided to check the ingredients.
Sugar. In my salsa. Why? Salsa is supposed to be spicy!! Not sweet!! Well there goes that joy from my life. Ok, no worries, I’ll grab a pickle. Check the list of ingredients. Ok, nothing that seems overtly sugary but there is stuff listed here that I can’t identify. Go on the internet to see what it is aaaaannnnddddd it’s a sugar. An artificial sugar no less. IN MY PICKLES!! IN. MY. PICKLES.
After breakfast I went to my phone to hop on Facebook. Then remembered I had uninstalled it. So I scanned through Youtube, checked stats on here, and then did something truely exciting.
Cleaned out my fridge.
I’m reminded of a bit from comedian Chris Porter about not posting about such activities unless you found a brick of cocaine. Since I didn’t I won’t go into anymore detail than that. What I will say is that without the distraction and false dopemine causing Facebook on my phone I feel the need to do stuff. Amazing, I know.
Later that morning, with shopping list in hand, I headed to the grocery store to stock up. I’m sure I’m not the first to notice but shopping takes a bit longer when you are looking for crap in your foods…and there is a ton of it out there.
Day 1 was also Pie Day at work. Awesome. Everyone enjoying Hersheys Chocolate Pie, but it’s ok, I’ve got a Larabar, totally the same thing. *sigh*
Day 1 almost over.
P.S. Is farting alot normal in the beginning? Asking for a friend….
