Your Friday Reading Assignment

Early this morning a Facebook friend posted this link, which sort of fits the tone Skipping Dessert has built for itself.  I remember Cracked magazine (or maybe it qualifies as a comic) from my misspent youth as a cheap knockoff of Mad magazine (which, in truth, was a cheap knockoff of its former self by the late 70’s when I started reading it).

Today, Cracked is a humor/satire/pop-culture-commentary website.  Generally speaking, I enjoy it, but it doesn’t have anything to do with healthy eating/living/etc.  It’s always well-sourced, however, so when you go read this article – The 6 Most Horrifying Lies The Food Industry is Feeding You – you can rest assured it’s true.  A little funny, a lot scary, but true.

So go read it.  And stay away from the sawdust and fake blueberries.

As you may read here, weigh-in day was yesterday, and the results continue to be positive.

    The word “horrifying” was intended, I think, as a warning. Also too, you knew the risks when you ordered the neon-red food 🙂
