You Are What Your Fish Ate


In tonight’s episode – You Are What Your Fish Ate – I get real about what foodiness has done to fish; about how we’re all constantly told by too blond, too skinny, too happy, tan-in-January nutritionists on morning talk shows to eat oily fish like salmon or tuna in order to get our Omega 3’s, while conveniently ignoring that farmed salmon is low in Omega-3’s (and high in Omega-6’s, which can cause heart disease) and tuna is toxic with mercury (and on the verge of extinction); how non-foodies are vaguely aware something is up with fish, but they think, “I’m not eating McDonalds, so how bad could it be?”; and how to realistically get real about fish: only eat “wild” salmon; try smaller, lower profile fish like sardines and herring; and don’t eat tuna at all – it’s completely f*ed up.

Eat Pizza for Breakfast, Not Pop-Tarts


Tonight, on “Let’s Get Real”….It was the perfect storm. The late Victorian era and its obsession with purity of body and soul, (meaning pooping) the exploding of the industrial revolution, and the dawn of “marketing” from America’s food manufacturers. Guess what they all combined to invent? Foodiness Breakfast Mania! This is where it all began, folks, with a rolled out oat flake and a fear of the body and all its messy needs and discharges. So in came Foodiness, to fill the void (so to speak)….and now we have Cereal and “Milk” bars with no actual milk products in them…OMG! Better off eating leftover pizza than an organic poptart is my motto, I learned that from my niece, who commands no definition of what makes a food meal-specific, and will happily eat pad thai or caesar salad for her morning meal.

If You Want to Be Thin & Not Get Cancer, Eat Real Food


Tonight, on “Let’s Get Real”….As Gilda Radner said, (as Rhonda Weiss of Rhonda and the Rhondettes)…”Research proves that men prefer thin girls with cancer, than healthy girls with chunky thighs” Hmmm, sounds like a fair deal to me, having been born to a tribe of chubster peasant-types, shaped like Bosc pears. And most cancer is curable now anyway, isn’t it??
I TRIED to live on diet soda, back in the 80’s, but it made me so darn sick, I had to switch to water and real food. So inconvenient…. So, if those are your choices, pack up your cooler and strap on your fanny pack. You’ll need to go far, far down the Foodiness rabbit hole, past the bottom, to a brand new place. A place I’ve never even mentioned before. Its beyond the River Sprite…, past the point of no 5-cent return, The 7-up’th circle of hell, where you’ll find Donald Rumsfeld waiting for you, with a tall, cold glass of poison in hand, sweetened with Splenda with Vitamins, and eternal thinness will finally be yours…Or, you can move to Utah. Listen to the episode to find out why…
