    Just wanted to announce to my listeners that I will be taking a break from the podcast for a few months.  I’ve been releasing episodes for over 4 years now.  Personal issues in recent months have made it difficult to continue monthly programs, so I will be re-grouping and re-thinking the program in the interim.

    FLR 056: 2020 Freaky Fast Foods

    INGREDIENTS OF THE DAY:  None
    For today’s show, I continue digging into the subject of fast food restaurants by examining the worst of the worst, what I call “freaky fast foods.”  They have really become a phenomenon in recent years.  I will try to explore what that says about our society, and why that trend will probably continue into the near future.

    FLR 054: On Junk & Fast Food, Skinny French Women, and Secretive Natural Flavors

    INGREDIENTS OF THE DAY:  None
    This is another show dedicated to news stories about processed foods and trends.  The food industry never stays static, so you and I have to stay on our toes to be aware of the changes constantly happening.  In this episode, I go international to discuss the following topics: (1) how a neighboring country is trying to protect its kids from junk food; (2) England’s obesity drive; (3) the misleading nature of the word “natural” on food labels; and (4) why French women compared to others are successful at keeping the pounds off.

    FLR 053: Kids + Junk Food = Dire Future

    FLR 053: Kids + Junk Food = Dire Future

    INGREDIENTS OF THE DAY:  Tallow, Hydrogenated Tallow, Magnesium Stearate,
    This episode is about kids and junk food.  The content of the program will consist of 3 parts: (1) kid’s health in America and the world; (2) marketing bad food to kids; and (3) examining 5 commercial products that target kids as consumers.  Along the way, you’ll learn about the Convention on the Rights of the Child … a Bill of Rights for kids.  Of course, this episode would not be complete without the usual, brain-numbing analyses of food ingredients in processed foods.  So foodeaters, I think you’ll find this information interesting.  Even I was surprised at some of the items I dug up during the research for the show.

    FLR 052: Diving Deep into Doritos

    INGREDIENT OF THE DAY:  none 
    For today’s program, I’ve decided to wax nostalgic and go back to the early days when I explored individual food products on grocery store shelves and looked at all the ingredients and some of the nutritional aspects.  I do a deep dive into a Doritos tortilla chip product, namely Flamin’ Hot Nacho chips.
