The two unrelated thoughts have to do with change and bacon.
Change. Some of you may be wondering why we are transitioning our girls so slowly into a new way of eating. Can’t we just change it and they’ll get used to it? Well, you know we adopted them. Frequently, with adoption, come food issues. Have you ever had, or known someone who had food issues? Food is not just nourishment. There’s a level at which food, its content, and availability is deep and produces an emotional response within us. It goes to our very survival. So we’re not going to heap big quick change on two sweet girls who have already had a lot of change in their lives.
Now from the serious to the snarky…
Bacon. I was listening to the radio today and heard a car commercial talking about how hard it can be to ensure you’re making the right choices. I didn’t get to listen to the whole thing, because the first example they gave was: “should you have granola or bacon?” Immediately my brain screamed Bacon! Seriously? What kind of question is that?!? Now I know they meant for granola to be the right choice. But this is from the same stream of thought that gave us Sam Sandwich and his attack on essential minerals, I mean salt. How about we just eat real food, and salt it? If you’re really worried about salt, this method would get you less sodium than all that processed stuff anyway.
