Thanks for participating in my poll.? You guys didn’t do so bad.? Here’s the low down.
1. It is better for you to eat:
a) a diet fully devoid of fats
b) a diet containing just a ?pinch? of fat
the answer would be B.? Fat is essential for human survival and therefore you need at least a small bit of it in your diet.? I could go on and on about fats, mono-unsaturated, poly-unsaturated, transfat and the like, but you might get pissed and try to mug me for that chocolate cake.
2. If you were stranded on a desert island with nothing but water and unlimited quantities of one other food, which would be best for your survival?
c) hot dogs
d) milk chocolate
I apologize for not including the other 2 choices that appeared in “In Defense of Food.”? Those would be peaches and spinach.? And to be totally honest it is alfalfa sprouts not the stuff the cows eat.? I was at the church when I wrote that post and couldn’t remember exactly what was on the list.? In the example in the book 42% chose bananas as the healthiest, 27% selected spinach, 12% corn, 7% alfalfa sprouts, 5% peaches, 4% hot dogs and 3% milk chocolate.
71% of you guys picked bananas, 14% picked corn and 14 % picked milk chocolate.? Ladies, most of you will be happy to know that the best answers were milk chocolate and hot dogs.? I do like me a good Hebrew National.? Reason behind it is fat.
So next time someone strands you on a deserted island ask for the good stuff.
And the chocolate cake photo.? Interesting answers.? Of course Willow had to come up with some kind of photography thing.? And Carrie, honestly.? I don’t like cake either, but I could force myself to snarf down a piece or twelve of chocolate cake.
I asked that one because when Americans were shown a photo of chocolate cake most said something very similar to Jenny, “guilt.”? When French people were shown the same photo most said, “celebration.”? An interesting observation on our food culture don’t you think.
