Marketing Meat

This is a confusing sight… As I walked past the BUTCHER section of my local Whole Foods I spotted a giant ‘100% Vegetarian’ sign on the counter and had to see what sort of meat-free option was being sold alongside bloody steaks and raw chicken kabobs. Was there some sort of new meatless cow on […]

Food Flop

There are times when nasty-sounding food combinations end up becoming your favorite recipes. But then there are those things that sound perfect in principle, but in reality end up being food flops. Hotdogs can be tasty. Pizza is always good. So a ‘hotdog-pizza’ would be awesome…right?! No. A layer of tomato sauce, topped with onions, […]

Crossing the Line

Don’t be one of those jerks who shows up at Subway during peak-lunch-hours to order  a dozen complicated combos for your co-workers that are diligently  staying at their desks.

Food Fight

I am fed up with how so many people take extreme positions on what to eat. Food fanatics cover the whole spectrum from gluten-free followers to Atkins allocates, and even those ‘juicers’ who drink kale for dinner. For every cultist-like vegan there is, there is also a crazed-cow chomping carnivore. Both sides constantly try to […]

Face the Flax

It is time to finally face the flax. So many foods brag about how they include ‘flax’ and it is sort of getting annoying. I finally decided to try and figure all this flax craziness out and determine if this is just another dumb trend like the overuse of acai, that preys on the health […]
