"Eggs, Cholesterol and Bad Science"
This has to be one of my favorite "As I see it" articles by D'Adamo. If you have not yet read it, click on
the "features" button at the top of the page, then click on D'Adamo's subgroup, then "As I see it". It's in the recent archives.
It just makes me sad that my first two decades on this earth were filled with corporate BS propaganda to destroy the ancient legacy of the incredible, edible egg. And all the while, these disgusting hog operations have been polluting my home state. (Have you ever driven through/smelled Iowa? Nuff said.) Piglet is poisoning our wells. I will get on my "how did we allow agribusiness to become so corrupt?" soapbox another day. Right now, I am just thankful for the last two years of eggcellent enlightenment against common misconceptions/poorly made conclusions against my friend, the egg.
Well, I've had chicken breasts the last two nights. And four total pieces of fudge. ( www.fudgefatale.com ) And snacked on a Zone bar and dried raspberries at work Obviously, I need more veggies in my diet. And I need more sleep.
(And the OCD breakfast this morning)
We bloggers have our own little private forum so I've been busy posting my two cents on that all night so this is a fairly short blog. Perhaps I'll expand on some of those ideas publicly, but until then I need to get at least six hours of sleep before work tomorrow. Lesson learned tonight: no more grazing a soy latte from 3 pm to 10 pm. Too much caffeine too late at night!!!!
I've gotta quit drinking so much coffee. I know it's beneficial for me, but in excess it's giving me GERD and going even a day without it feels like my energy is zapped at work. Gotta swing toward more green tea. "All in good time, my dear, all in good time."
Work is still stressful, but tonight I received a "five year" gold pin for my lab coat. Wow, five years with the same company! I've come a long way, baby. I guess. Hey, I know I tend to trash corporate America, but on the other hand, it's not wise to bite the hand that feeds you a steady income in this crap economy. I just wish there was more room for individuality and constructive problem solving as well as more room to grow and learn clinically while on the clock. Not just for me, but for the health of my patients.
Eventually, I will have some balance. Till then, holy acid reflux, Batman! Keep that caffeine flowin!
