I’ve got breakfast issues. I know it’s the most important meal of the day but it sure as hell isn’t the healthiest. I realized that again today when I said to my 8 year old, “Do you want pizza or spaghetti-os this morning?” Wait, I do try to put some fruit, grapes of a banana on the side of the plate next to the pizza, I promise.
Allmost all of the packaged breakfast stuff is actually crap and loaded with chemicalsand preservative, waffle, pancakes, sausage and pancake on a stick. why don’t you just eat a deep fried Twinkie? Oh my Lord, there’s nothing good in there and you know it. Especially after you pour a half cup of sugar syrup, I mean maple syrup, all over everything. And their teachers wonder why they are all jacked up.
Sometimes the kids will eat Honey Nut Cheerios but I worry that’s not enough to hold them till lunch.
I think my breakfast issues started with my father. When I was little he was in charge of feeding me before I scampered off to 1st grade. He felt popcorn and grapes were the perfect breakfast combo, kind of like cereal and fruit, but different. Or he would fix me my favorite, something I’m sure is deadly but I feed it to my kids too. Cheese Toast With Sliced Up Hot Dogs…that’s yummy stuff in the AM hours.
And what would Dad have? Two raw eggs (ala Rocky) with a ton of Tabasco sauce. No doubt, that’s the healthiest thing mentioned in this blog. Thanks Dad.

So, I ate a bag for lunch, but all I could think was, “This is really really dead food”. As I finished off the ninety nine cent bag I thought about the actual nutritional content. I had eaten 440 calories worth of “food” but my poor body didn’t get a damn thing except chemicals, salt and orange food coloring. No protein, no vitamins, nada. And I felt sorry for my body. It was hungry so I dumped a bag of orange, man made, crunchy chemical sticks into my stomach. Then, I expected my brain and body to perform well.
An hour later I was hungry, exhausted and really thirsty. So Cheetos really are “dangerously cheesey”.
Later that day I googled “dead food”. Wow, there’s a whole world of folks out there with serious thoughts about living and dead food, they make lists and eat everything raw.To my surprise, Beef Jerky made the dead list, I was pretty sad about that one.
Chef Craig Koketsu of the Park Avenue Autumn Restaurant in New York has created a a very popular Broccolli and Cheeto dish that sounds surprisingly wonderful, but I think it kind of shoots down the whole purpose of eating veggies.
So, back to dead food. I think it might be bad for us. I think our bodies need more than chemicals. And I think we are seeing more and more young girls with surprisingly flabby bellies because we are all eating too much “dead food”. We are filling out bodies with preservatives and weird trans fats and our bodies just don’t know where to put it, so they turn it into fat than hangs over the top of our low rise jeans. I think we are all tired because we aren’t giving our body the stuff it need to run… meats, vegetables and fruits. It’s like asking a car to run on scotch or shampoo.
The truth is I’ll keep on eating some “dead food” because it tastes really good and I like yummy stuff. But I think we all need to avoid Cheetos for lunch, unless you have a big rib-eye steak and a salad on the side.
