EATS AND FLIES PART III 10 OCT 2009
EWR TO CDG CONTINENTAL 757-200
A SHORT FLIGHT FOR AN INTERCONTINENTAL ONE, SIX HOURS AND TWENTY MINUTES
Seat 7C. With plenty of Leg Room. A French couple, unfriendly and unhygienic was sharing the seat. That is my bad luck, bad stars; I never have good seatmates, whichever part of the plane I am sitting in... But unpleasant ones make it easier not to talk to them...
I had requested a Hindou Meal, mainly because special meals are served first!
Nothing special really, a little bit of rice, lentils and with a flavor of curry. A green salad, generic, with lettuce and a few tomatoes thrown in.
Cesar Salad dressing with its 22 ingredients. A small amount only.
Bread as stale as it can be and Butter
Seagram’s Seltzer which tasted good
To add insult to injury, they had Love and Quiches chocolate cookie with Palm and Palm kernel Oil in it, they sell it as Chocolate Chip? Why?
One thing is clear
In America, eating Food is not an easy affair; one has to be extremely careful: usually it is chemically soiled with an artificial taste; the food has become plastic in taste.
No pointing in counting Carbohydrates, Fat and Protein contents, when the Protein is from cattle injected with Growth Hormones, Estrogen and Antibiotics (has been related to precocious puberty in young girls!), and cattle are in pens with no room to move and are fed corn and not natural foods and fattened up for the market. You can be sure that the chemical content of meat bought at supermarkets to be high. My advice to my Native patients, eat wild meats like your ancestors (Native Americans are not healthy as their ancestors were!): Deer Meat, Buffalo Meat, their chances of getting heart disease are much less.
A recent report released says all fresh water fish are contaminated. When buying fish don’t fall for the propaganda High in Omega 3, find out whether they are farm cultivated or wild caught. Only God and Dick Cheney and his ilk know what is being fed to the fish...Corn?
What can I say? Eat Argentine Beef if you can afford it. Have you ever tasted Kobe Beef?
Live in another country while working in the USA (part time). Inhabitants of the rich countries are imitating the diet of the poor people while the inhabitants of the poorer countries are imitating the West: Dunkin Donuts, Krispy Kreme, Kentucky Fried, McDo are becoming so common and I could see why the Malaysians are the fattest in Asia... Just stop at one of their malls or one of the stops at their highways!
