    The Healthy Food Thread

    Went grocery shopping and, to be honest, was baffled by the choices due to all the healthier options and higher prices. Ultimately, this can more than double the grocery bill. Organic and cage-free eggs ($8) were twice as much as the regular dozen. Then there were cage-free chicken eggs, but not labeled organic and then organic eggs that weren't from cage free chickens. WTF.

    Of the following food 'truths', what do you subscribe to and what's bullshit?

    Organic is healthier
    Aspartame causes cancer
    Cage-free is healthier
    Bottled water vs tap
    Stevia is healthier than artificial sweeteners and sugar
    high fructose corn syrup is unhealthy
    iodized salt
    Gluten-free is healthier
    Farmers markets/buying local produce better than shipped from out-of-state
    wild fish vs farm-raised fish

    Pretty much buy into all of it but just can't afford to. We do eat gluten free (when the wife cooks) because the wife has celiac. She can cook so it all tastes good!

    If you don't have a specific medical condition that isn't some made up hipster nonsense, most of this I consider snake oil.

    The non-GMO craze is one I specifically don't buy at all.

    That's about where I land on it, too.

    I try to limit my family's intake of processed foods and cook with very little salt.

    Pretty much. The only difference between 8 dollar eggs and regular eggs, is that they appeal to the galactically stupid.

    No. I meant exactly what I said.


    Go watch 'A Few Good Men', then get back to me.

    Well well well...I'm reserving my place in this thread. I am gong to be out most of the day but I've got mush to say about the issue. I'll mainly be here to set the record straight on how everyone is wrong and I am right.
