I do not drink soda pop very often. I am probably good for about 2 cans of soda a year. I seldom visit New York City so Mayor Bloomberg’s ban on big sodas will have no effect on me. It won’t make me healthier and it won’t curb my soda consumption. It won’t even offend my sensitivity to government intervention. Out of site. Out of mind.
A few years ago I became convinced that high fructose corn syrup was the cause of my weight gain. High fructose corn syrup is an added ingredient in everything from cereal to canned beans. High fructose corn syrup is used to sweeten things that don’t need to be sweetened. Did you know that bread is sweetened?
In a bold and broad gestured to prove a point, I declared that I would bake my own bread and that I would not use high fructose corn syrup or for that matter any sweetener.
Most interesting about baking bread is the simplicity. Bread is flour, yeast and water. Maybe a little salt or just a pinch of sugar or honey to feed the yeast. Loafs of bread are like snowflakes. So simple yet no 2 loafs are the same. (I may have been spending too much time thinking about bread.)
I didn’t lose an ounce. In fact I gained weight. Looking back I think the problem was the quantity of bread I was consuming rather than the content of high fructose corn syrup. When we were buy bread with high fructose corn syrup a loaf would last a week to 10 days. When I was baking my own bread a loaf seldom lasted 2 days. Home baked bread is the bomb! I don’t bake bread any more and I’ve lost a few pounds. Out of site. Out of mind.
Coffee, farm raised fish, genetically engineered vegetables, beer and bunch of other stuff has been deemed a culprit and then a hero and then a culprit and so on.
