Fast food 'light'
Taco Bell and Jack in the Box, along with the aforementioned Starbucks, are offering lighter menu options next year.
Any New Year's resolutions about eating? I'm going to get stricter about not allowing high fructose corn syrup in my body. (The only products we eat that contain it is the occasional loaf of bread, Gatorade and inferior chocolate products.) I'd also like to cut out non-organic cheese, diet soda (I drink maybe five a month) and processed soy (aside from organic tofu). I'm almost 100 percent there on all of these, I just need to be a little more diligent.
My new favorite healthful food addition is umeboshi plum paste. They're supposedly good for helping colds and flu. The plums, actually apricots, are an acquired taste. I'm still acquiring that taste.
