Lefty and I have been watching that CNN documentary series on the 1960s. I started re-thinking yesterday’s post about being a neo-hippie. As a free-thinker and someone who goes against popular culture, I hope that I wouldn’t have been cruel to our VietNam vets when they came home from the war/conflict (however you want to call it.) Those guys went through so much horror. Whenever I see something that identifies them as a VietNam Vet, I thank them for their service. What a confusing mess of a war! I also feel sorry for Lyndon B. Johnson for trying to lead our divided country during that conflict.
Well, forward to now and my latest hippie-ism:
I’ve been reading Salt Sugar Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us by Michael Moss, and I followed it up by going to Earthfare and buying stuff like Ezekiel 4:9 bread. Yes, that is bread made from sprouts and seeds rather than all of those nasty additives. It was Yuuuummmmy! I highly recommend it. I bought antibiotic-free pork-chops, and coconut milk.
The Robertsons are going clean! Well, not entirely clean. We’re just trying to eat a little bit healthier, trying to get better about salt, sugar, and unhealthy fats. We’re trying to avoid weird additives. One of my friends told me that one fast-food restaurant uses an additive used in manufacturing yoga mats in their bread. Yuck!
So tomorrow it’s going to be organic pork chops for lunch. Why don’t you all come on over!
