the screams...the horror...

"I want chocolate!!!" My 5 year old daughter's cries could be heard throughout Target.
I had just fed her a banana in anticipation of the short trip to the Post Office and then into the store. We needed a few things since we just got back from vacation yesterday and the banana should have held off pangs of, well, anything. What I hadn't taken into account was how long I would wander around just looking for anything that did not contain high fructose corn syrup or soy. I got nothing. I finally picked up some cut fruit and some organic bananas and figured it will just have to "do" until I could figure some of this food mess out...
I just finished this book and was, frankly, horrified. I cannot believe how badly my family has been deceived by the food growers, Monsanto, and big Pharm...the American government!!! Our family is led by my husband who is charged with caring for a wife with Multiple Sclerosis and 11 adopted children with varying degrees of behavioral issues that are likely caused from the food we eat. Nicolette's melt-down was somewhat disappointing as I have been changing her diet for a few days now, and hoped to see less of the withdrawal from the chemicals. I understood, though, having spent the day arguing with more or less clarity depending on the age of the child, this foray into organic..."really, white bread is white bread, even if it comes from Sprouts." Heck, I had even contemplated, way longer than is sane, a disgusting leftover twizzler in my travel bag. I was almost relieved to see the banana still sitting at the table when we got home. She never ate it!! A light at the end of a very long tunnel...
Now I am going to lust after my twizzler...I mean pray for strength!!!!
