Back in the good old days milk and butter and cheese, not to mention meat, and stuff like that were good for you but now, it seems, not so much. Or maybe it's just not good for the guys who sell you the stuff to sell it to you all in one package when they can split it up and sell it to you twice (the butterfat that should have been on your oatmeal at breakfast winds up in your manufactured milk shake at lunch). But never mind all that.
I went to the grocery store today and came back with no-fat milk (the only thing I use milk for is to put it in my tea and as it turns out no-fat is actually good for that), no-fat yogurt (why? you might ask), butter (which is really not butter at all but sissy butter made almost entirely from Canola oil), and a package of Kraft Let's Just Pretend It's Cheese. Thin gruel indeed.
The only thing that saves the day when I go to the grocery store any more are those little chocolate-covered donuts that come in a roll at the check-out corner. Here's to you, chocolate-covered donuts, you are it!
