They say never to go grocery shopping when you’re hungry. But what are you supposed to do if you’re pretty much always hungry, like me? So, yeah, I went shopping when I was hungry. I found myself wandering aimlessly around Whole Foods, curious about all the advancements that have been made in organic, grass-fed technology. And I found this:
I realized that I had never, not once in my entire life, drank a glass of plain whole milk. Had I really gone 33 years without knowing what whole milk tastes like? Suddenly it seemed so wrong. I had to try it. And if I’m going to drink whole milk, I’m going to do it right―organic and from grass-fed cows.
It tasted magnificent. Creamy, buttery fat rolled around in my mouth, coating my tongue in velvety yumminess. How did I go so long without this? Non-fat milk seemed like such a fraud. These days I’ve been trying to eat a little more paleo, and a little less awful, but I’m going to have to let myself go on a whole milk binge for awhile to make up for a few of those 33 fat-less years.
And since I’ve been trying to avoid grains, this got me really excited:
It’s made from almond flour and tapioca flour. When I got home I turned over the package, looking for defrosting instructions. Instead I found the most contradictory statement I’d ever seen on a food item.
Really? Is it even legal to make a statement like this? Shouldn’t it be false advertising or blatant lies or something? I never found the defrosting instructions. With a statement like that, I’m starting to wonder if this thing is even food.
