This just in..Eggs are bad for you. Now if memory serves (and let's be honest, it rarely does) didn't we just hear that eggs were good for you not too long ago! I find it next to impossible to keep track of these things. Chocolate is supposed to be a great way to maintain your gastrointestinal health but apparently that's only if it's dark chocolate (which sucks!) and consumed on the south side of a north facing pine tree under a quarter moon. The point is why do they make this so confusing? Every person in the world wants to make better choices for themselves but what is that better choice. I have this dream that every bit of information in the world is vetted before it goes out to folks. Every fact checked, every test done and every spin quashed but it doesn't work that way. There are whole industries that depend on us not having enough information to realize exactly what it is we're doing/ injesting to ourselves and nobody to stop them. Let's not forget that the cigarette industry made a pretty tidy profit off of convincing you that the only way you could relax was to sit back and ravage your lungs...and that was just a generation ago. I always find it hardest when I'm trying to get thru to my kids that things like marshmallows aren't good snack foods. I want my kids to not be afraid to try new and exotic things but if they like something how do I tell them they should dial it back. Last year we got this fancy schancy contraption that will make basically a home made mcmuffin. While your toasting the english muffin you can also cook the egg into the shape you require. It's easy and my son embraced the idea and started making the darn things all the time. I was over the moon because that meant that a little more time was mine in the morning and I didn't have to come up with something for our breakfasts, but now eggs are bad for you again. Well just the yellow centre but still. So....how do I tell him that the egg sandwiches are yummy sure but too many and your carotid artery will swell and expand causing you to have health problems your whole life that we're caused by your father just wanting a few more minutes to himself on a weekend morning! It's just too much to handle sometimes...and now I want a fried egg sandwich.
my brain hurts...
