This!

I stick with as many whole foods as possible, grabbing fruit and nuts for a snack whenever I can, but I'm not giving up my steak or juicy burger!


Whole foods are great except I start getting a little full after the first half of the cow. laugh

If the packaging of a food tells you that it is healthy, then it probably isnít.

o.m.g. Other than my immediate family, you are the first person I have ever 'met' who does this too!!! This habit is what prompted me to get a butter bell so that my butter is always spreading consistency and doesn't shatter the cracker.


When I was a kid, everyone in my family put butter on saltines. We put butter on everything. If I was hungry before dinner, Mom would give me a spoonful of butter and sugar. Yes, I was a (somewhat) overweight kid.

Unsalted butter and sugar all the way! No margarine and no artificial sweeteners here. Yuck!

If I can't have butter and sugar then I'll do without rather than slather on any fake butter stuff or consume any chemical sweeteners.

I don't go overboard on either butter or sugar but add a little of each to life.

Another butter/saltine cracker eater here from way back.

Did anyone ever eat saltines with mayonnaise on them? Just recently, my wife introduced me to this treat she says she ate as a kid. Pretty good stuff, that mayonnaise on saltine crackers! Just will not work if one substitutes Miracle Whip for the mayonnaise either.

"Know anyone who has been vegetarian for more than 10 years? Look how their skin is a leathery condition, and they look ill. lack of protein and other vitamins that veggies and pills can't provide."

Yep, you're absolutely correct on the "look." I grew up near an entire small Texas town that, for religious reasons, embraced the "healthful benefits" of a vegetarian diet. The residents stood out like sore thumbs due to their uniformly pasty-faced appearance. They died as readily as the rest of the human population does, and of the same ol' maladies too.

The humorous part of the practice was their "soy-steaks, vegi-burgers, and "bacon-like slices" along with all the other meat substitutes found in their local supermarket. Almost made light of the Biblical admonition to "avoid the very appearance of evil" the way the vegi-meat products were advertised.

I've never seen canned gumbo. Do they even sell it up in our neck of the woods, Peepers?

When I want gumbo, I make it from scratch according to the recipe given me by the proprietress of a Louisiana B&B we stayed in. My family requires hush-puppies be served with it, not crackers. laugh

Never seen that in a vegetarian. And I work with several.

i spread butter on saltine crackers

Happy you might be okay after all even with your burned steak! I've never even HEARD of this before, but it sounds interesting.

I like PB (As DD said) and LOVE NY extra sharp cheddar melted on saltines under the broiler until saltines are kinda dark...OMG!

These days I also like salted caramel hazlenut spread on saltines or ritz or grahams.

OH! YUM!

I think the thing most likely to kill us all is the old tuna salad I found in the fridge today. It had an unusual smell.

My husband also eats mayo on saltines, although he isn't picky, so he probably would eat Miracle Whip on them too!

When I was a kid, we had butter and grape jelly on saltines often as a snack. I haven't had that in ages! I like the salty/sweet you get by adding the jelly.

True. We shall soon see the day of "Organic high-fructose corn syrup."

Possible revision though: If a food comes in packaging, it probably isn't that healthy to begin with.

Compare:
Bananas to Banana chips
Apples to Apple Juice Cocktail 10% Juice
Pumpkin to Pumpkin Mocha Latte Half-Caf Blaster Whachamadoo

On the other hand, if food didn't come protected by packaging, it definitely won't be healthy.

Flying, because solar radiation. Particularly, flying when it is not night-time, apparently.

I'm vacating this joint in less than two weeks and we're flying, day... night... whatever, solar radiation or not! I'll probably read or nap my way through it.

Solar radiation beats bank compliance. That's the stuff that'll kill ya'!

Unnecessary medical tests can kill, as they can lead to biopsies and further tests (and stress/worry/thoughts of mortality) and possibly surgery, and this is sometimes all done to correct something that would have been a total non-issue if the person had never done the initial test in the first place. And there are false-positives and inconclusive results that lead to removing benign tissues, without properly educating the patient on the risks of complications. A big part of medicine is guesswork. Medicine is big business and informing you of your options is not their job - it's yours.

At age 85 my grandfather flat-out refused to take a stress test (running on a treadmill) because, well, he was 85! Good for him.

I distrust a few of the recommended preventive tests because the medical industry gives them to millions and millions of people for years, THEN determines that the risk of harm outweighs the benefits, in some cases.

Obviously each person's situation is unique and everybody knows somebody who had cancer or whatever illness...Again, this post is just to share my own odd/quirky concern about a thing that thousands (millions) of other people find perfectly normal and acceptable. My reasons may be preposterous, but that's ok.
