I've gotten in the habit of making my own pizza dough, and in my quest to make my own pizza from scratch, I went ahead and figured out a nice pizza sauce recipe. I'm lazy, so I also lighten up on the brown sugar and use it for spaghetti sauce when I'm feeling hungry. I [...]

But, does this not qualify as "taking advantage of people," by serving them a meal of indiscriminate meat and not even ponying up on the info?

When I lived in Texas, my girl and I used to hit up the Red Lobster every other weekend. We'd crack jokes, catch up (school kept us very busy, plus my added little bundle of joy) and enjoy a couple of drinks. Namely, the gloriously decadent Lobsterita. A delicious [not-so-] little 18oz margarita. Full of [...]

I've been saying this for a while now... but when it becomes innocent you against people who stand to make lots of money off of you, you don't stand a chance. Taken from Women's Health magazine: Here's how this deviousness works: Human beings have what food-industry insiders call a "bliss point," a nirvana of the [...]

Supermarket Swindle: Two Things To Avoid On Your Food Labels

By | 2017-06-10T11:21:36+00:00 January 1st, 2015|Did You Know, Healthy Eating, What Are You Eating?|15 Comments

As I've said before, there are only a few things that really unnerve me - one of them is dishonesty in marketing. (Surprise, surprise... that's what marketing is.)

As someone who works in marketing, I'm often analyzing something from the aspect of the company. Why would a company pay to put "this-particular-image" in my face? What are they trying to get me to do? Why does my reaction benefit them? Is it truly in my best interests to react to this in this [...]

Once upon a time.. I used to kill the bag. Destroy the box. I could barely sit down before I tore into it... whatever the "it" was for the day. I'm talkin' about snackin'. Although, for me, it was never really a snack. Not in the traditional sense - it wasn't simply a little bit [...]
