Friends of JustJoeP already know that I'm a BIG Mark Bittman fan (link here). His cook books, his philosophy towards food and eating, one could do alot worse. So a Tip Of the Hat to my friend Jill for this link (here) to Bittman's article this week on McDonalds attempts to turn the wholesomeness of Oatmeal into yet another Frankenfood. It's really worth the read.
"A more accurate description ... would be “oats, sugar, sweetened dried fruit, cream and 11 weird ingredients you would never keep in your kitchen.”"
"The aspect one cannot argue is nutrition: Incredibly, the McDonald’s product contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin. (Even without the brown sugar it has more calories than a McDonald’s hamburger.)"
Ew ew ew!!!!!
So very gross. As Jill put it "This article just kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little." I Verped as well. Disgusting. This reinforces why I never go to McDonalds.
