Healthy? My Butt…

I don’t even know what that statement means. It’s crazy but for once, it seems to apply. Here is my rant. I keep hearing about Gluten Free, Non-GMO, All Natural. And remember when preservatives became toxic? How about when trans fat was suddenly separated from other fats?

I’m eating a snack right now. It says, “0 grams trans fat, No preservatives, Gluten Free, Non-GMO Project Verified, Made with All Natural Ingredients”

It’s potato chips. The epitome of unhealthy American food. When you picture an unhealthy person, you usually see them in your minds eye on the couch surrounded by crumbs looking longingly into a bag of greasy potato chips. Much like I am right now!

What I’m saying is, don’t try and hide it. When it comes down to it, a potato chip is a potato deep fried in grease. You can say it’s all natural but it’s still deep fried potatoes. And all that healthy goodness made by a “company that cares” still adds up to 150 calories (80 of which are from FAT!) for only 13 chips. Who has ever stopped at 13 chips!? Who has even counted how many chips after 1 chip?! Most of the chips are broken! How can I even tell when I’ve eaten 13 chips?!

Give up the healthy act, Kettle chips! Let it go. We all know you are hiding cellulite under that fancy sustainable skirt! Healthy? My butt… is getting bigger from all this healthiness.

That is all. Now back to your regularly scheduled programing.

  1. Truth! I did the gluten free diet for my health before it became a fad and so many companies jumped on it. As I look at the ingredients in all the New GF food offerings, I have realized I would be gaining weight like crazy if I ate them. So you trade one health problem for another. There is no shortcut. A healthy diet means a lot of food prep. Bummer.
