Back to Natural Ingredients I Say
I haven't been keeping up with this blog and for that I sincerely apologize! I have however, been working on my other blog, The Eco-Modernist, Modern Design with a Conscience, as well as Marigold Lane, but as I tell my kids, "I can only do 18 things at once!" Just kidding of course...sort of.
At any rate, I rarely rant about anything with the exception of an essay I wrote about soy that I titled, Soylent Green: Invasion Of The Soybean. You can read it here if you wish. What brought me to rant today is yet again the mighty soybean. I rarely eat bread but I've been buying Pepperidge Farm Sandwich loaf for my kids' grilled cheese sandwiches. I know, I know...wheat or multi-grain is better for you but it just doesn't taste like grilled cheese if you know what I mean.
So today I opened up a fresh loaf and noticed that the bread had a different consistency to it. Immediately I became suspicious and checked the label. Sure enough more soy! Grr. Our food sources are being contaminated with bacteria like E. coli and salmonella every day--spinach, tomatoes, and cantaloupes. Our foods are being contaminated with useless ingredients and fillers. I feel like we are being poisoned all in the name of the almighty dollar. I decided then and there I would learn how to bake my own bread, even if I had to use a bread maker. One more thing to add to my list but definitely worth it, don't you think?
