Recently, I heard a news report on the television that the large fast food franchises would no longer be using what is actually called SLIME in the food industry as an ingredient in their products. Did we know about SLIME in the first place and the fact that through manipulation of artificial flavorings, we digested the stuff??????? Who knew???? And, now that I know what it is and that I ate it because I was led to believe that only healthy stuff is offered at those places (being sarcastic here), I want to throw up!
Now, it's REALLY SCARY......the government is buying the stuff up and feeding it to our children and calling it healthy with their new initiatives to mandate that only they know what is healthy and good for the public. Please read the article to see what I'm talking about. AND, sign the petition!
I was typing so fast....I forgot to give you the link: http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/pink_slime/?r=5538179&id=36198-5016798-byBHbex
When Roland and I met, I was one of those people who opened the box or can and warmed up the family meal. After our marriage in 2005, I truely began to appreciate what food is really about, not only that it can taste very good, and be nutritious, but that it can be a celebration of who you are and the people that you share it with.
