Oh I know. It's crazyness. It still surprises me though, when people serve low fat milk or margarine, thinking it's healthier. Because I'm so in the world of real food now, I forget that not everyone thinks the same way I do.
So true. It's funny you should mention this, because ever since I started making my own chicken stock, I usually avoided the fat. Now I eat it up...and it tastes good, it makes me feel good and I'm less hungry. so when I'm less hungry, I don't overeat ;) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :) :) :)
here! here! Low fat non sense indeed!
Amen! Fat is where it's at!
yep...that's how it is...i even stopped reading some of the natural health magazines because they kept saying low fat that, low fat this...I know read real food blogs, and my family is happy and healthy because of the butter, cream and other yummy things we eat. I totally have to reeducate my nutrition clients on this issue every time i see their food diary...

Yes! I will add one more unhealthy fat, though - CAFO meat fat. While fat from pastured meat is good stuff, the stuff that comes from factory farming is a different story. I think this confusion is part of why full fat meat and dairy has gotten such a bad rap. They've studied the stuff that's fed GMO grain, antibiotics, and been raised in a high stress, filthy environment.
Joy - I fully agree with you. CAFO meat fat is full of pesticides, antibiotics, things cows should not be eating like other animals, corn, and their living conditions are abhorrent. I eat grass fed organic meats and butter 90% of the time now. My body thanks me for it.
I think artificial sweeteners and pregnancy should never mix if you are concerned about the overall well-being of a child being born into this world.
