I thought I’d take the time to actually cook the Top Ramen noodles for once (instead of eating it out of the bag), and made a nice, healthy 400-calorie lunch. Does this look fattening to a low-carber? I bought this kale yesterday, at a fellow shopper’s suggestion. She said to sauté it in “ghee or coconut oil” (cult alert!). She obviously wanted me to ask her what ghee was, so she could tell me about her Paleo diet, but I didn’t bite. I said I just had “regular oil”. I admitted it was canola oil. Luckily, she didn’t give me the omega-6 lecture. I told her I was going to eat it with Udon noodles, and she just smiled and bit her tongue.
What is it with this internet echo-chamber?! Before, a new fad diet would have to be relatively simple (i.e., “carbs are bad”). Now, with the internet, blogs, and message boards, these diets are incredibly specific. I have to sauté in grass-fed ghee? I have to limit my protein intake because of glycogenesis in the liver? I have to avoid exposure to all artificial light sources while I sleep?
Oh well, if you want effective magic, you have to follow all the steps exactly as written in the spell book.
