Vitamins Come From Food, Not Gummies


In tonight’s episode – Vitamins Come From Food, Not Gummies – I get real about foodiness “vitamins”; how the real reason we think we need to take foodiness vitamins is because we don’t eat real food with real vitamins; the fact that nobody actually knows what vitamins taken out of food and put into supplements actually do or don’t do; how taking vitamins out of context and putting them in another context is like when Madonna acts; how putting vitamins into things like Gummy Bears is just giving people an excuse to sit around and eat candy; how certain vitamins can be toxic in large doses, which taking in candy form puts people at risk for; how if you’re going to overdose (or worse, choke) at least go out in a blaze of glory like Janis Joplin or Jimi Hendrix – not sitting on the couch popping Gummy Vitamins in front of Bridezillas; and how to realistically get all the vitamins you need – which is to just eat real food.

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.
