    With every single one of those on the list, the issue is not the product itself, but the horribly refined versions of them and portion size. Coffee is find for you, until you start dumping three teaspoons of sugar into it or getting one of those 1000 calorie bombs at Starbucks, and so on.

    I'm not so sure about that. For the longest time we were told coffee or chocolate were bad for you, and they weren't adding any qualifiers like adding sugar to your coffee. It was simply, coffee is bad for you. As was the case with chocolate.

    The quality of the coffee matters too. Most commercialized coffee beans are filled with pesticides and mold.

    And drinking more than a cup a day is not wise.

    Milk is definitely bad for one's system...

    Unless it's soy milk, rice milk...etc.

    Coconut oil is great stuff. It handles high heat better than olive oil when you're using it as a cooking oil, and you can use it as a substitute for butter or margarine in food recipes.

    It's definitely worth checking out.

    I haven't touched cow's milk in over a decade.

    I don't think people ever thought regular popcorn was unhealthy. We just make it unhealthy by drowning it in caramel or butter and salt.

    Milk substitutes are generally not good for you. Just wanted to clarify my stance there.

    They need to throw a picture of some titties or an udder on almond milk cartons so I "feel" like I'm actually drink milk.

    Not whatever almond milk is or how it's processed.

    I'm pretty sure by now everything depends on your lifestyle and where you live. In my life everything keeps changing, what was good for you yesterday, or bad, gets a new study and oh ho !

    You can eat healthy as you want living in an industrial area or eat pure lard and weigh 700 lbs in rural Idaho and you'll get the same results depending on what you're breathing, and what's in what you eat and drink, depending on where it came from, which you'll never know anyway.

    My best experience with people who live rigid uncompromising healthy lifestyles is that they die about as randomly as anyone else and just seem unhappier doing it.

    Unfortunately Mama, you have about as much chance of drinking almond milk made from almonds grown in Hiroshima as I have of drinking a local beer supported by imported Chernobyl water.

    We're all done anyway. It's the world we made that increases the random factors. Your best shot is just maintaining a level of physical fitness that maintains your lifestyle and going to the doctor when you should, and hoping the doc doesn't tell you anything bad because you once mistakenly ate an isotope on your fresh veggie or cooked on your vile pizza.
    Test me not, lest I flout your inartful sophistry, puling jackanapes. I mean it too, man.

    Is Mr. Pink the one to bring me down ? Is Peterman on an NFL roster in 12/2019 ? What avatar do I choose for Mr. Pink ? Stay tuned, it's hugely !

    I hate all the food as medicine and fear of food memes. Eat sensibly and you'll be fine. No need for supplements and for god sake forget about anti-oxidants and all that crap.

    Last weekend, I made homemade sausage sage ravioli with marinara and ratatouille. Finished off with flan, espresso, sugar and cream.

    Sure, if you want everything to taste like coconut. I'll take olive oil any day. My dogs get coconut oil mixed in with the turkey I grind up for them. They're starting to give me dirty looks.
