Soy milk and cookies

03.21.05 | Comment?

Some people familiar with my site know that it was originally intended to be an online bakery. Joel had it set up so that people could place orders and everything. Then Amanda opened my eyes to the dangers of trans fat, and I realized that my whole life was a sham. I wiped our kitchen clean of the stuff and altered all my recipes, including my well tweaked chocolate chip cookie recipe. E-mail me if you want it.

A funny thing happened once I stopped using trans fat: I forgot about saturated fat, sodium, sugar, and calories. Occasionally I remember them long enough to make a healthy meal or two (much to Joel’s dismay). But usually I’m the girl scouring the ice cream freezer for ingredient lists devoid of “partially hyrdrogenated oil”, finally deciding on some flavor of Ben & Jerry’s. At least they’re environmentally conscious. Somehow that makes eating full-fat, full-sugar ice cream acceptable. Right? To our credit, we eat less when it’s full-flavored.

I’m constantly conflicted which causes me to be a walking contradiction. I know just about all the facts about nutrition, and I probably make a total nuisance of myself trying to share this information with others (I mean well, I promise). Putting the knowledge into practice, however, is another matter entirely. There’s just so much information out there that it’s difficult to condense it into a realistically liveable solution. I figure there’s a happy medium somewhere. So we eat lots of fish and vegetables, and for dessert, we have homemade calorie bomb cookies with unsweetened organic soy milk.
