Plastic in Bread?

Just what are we eating these days... Here is a CNN report on plastics in bread, by Elizabeth Landau..

http://www.cnn.com/2014/02/06/health/subway-bread-chemical/

The article goes on to describe about azodicarbonamide, used in the breads of several fast food restaurants, bakeries, and other seemingly "healthy" places to eat too.  This was a surprise to me, as I always thought the holy grail to eating good, was eating a good, wholesome, slice of bread.

At our house, we do buy somewhat of an organic and non organic mixture of food. The costs of organic is high, thus probably limiting peoples purchasing of organics all the time. Non GMO, organic, has definitely become the choice of food at our home. But, we know we cannot avoid this all of the time. We just do not know enough about the labeling (Food is made to taste good, not necessarily good for us), and probably contains allot of additives and preservatives, that will leave you scratching your head on the long names and scientific jargon. Who do you trust?  And can you handle that intake over so many years of your life without falling to illness... Why are these products banned in Europe, and maybe not in the USA and Canada. They are banned in Australia too?

I know I am not perfect. I go for a box of fried chicken every so often. But, I do try to limit the amount or intake of the stuff. Deep fried foods are probably the worst in nutritional value, and so on and so forth. Stuff we already know..

So I will leave it at that.. But it is good to question our food supply... That was one of the main themes of my books, especially Part 2 and even a little bit in Part 3...

Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
