WhoNu? – Healthy cookies my a**!

I was waiting for my laundry to dry and watching some TV when I saw a commercial for WhoNu? nutrition rich cookies.

WHAT!?! Ok so these PROCESSED COOKIES are NUTRITIOUS but my GRASS-FED, FATTY STEAK ISN’T!?!

UHM…I DON’T THINK SO!

Do people actually believe this crap is good for them!?! I mean look at the ingredients! You can’t even pronounce half of them!

What even is CALCIUM ACID PYROPHOSPHATE!?!

But who cares about the ingredients, right? All that matters are the vitamins and minerals the cookies have!

My only question is, why not just eat the things listed above instead of these cookies? All of the things above don’t have a ton of ingredients that you can’t pronounce!

Also, just look at all the sugar and carbs in these cookies!

All in all these vitamin and mineral enriched foods just aren’t near as good for you as eating the real thing. Just check out this article called “Are vitamin-fortified foods healthier?”. This quote from the article says it all! (And this article is even from the mainstream media!)

In other words, eating a cereal containing a plethora of vitamins does not equate to eating fruits, vegetables, legumes, or lean meats. (Ok so I don’t agree with the LEAN meat part but you get the idea!)
