Preservatives vs. No Preservatives

Did you ever watch Super Size Me? If you haven’t, you need to. It is a documentary about how the obesity epidemic started in America. We watched it 5ish years ago and to this day we sing the theme song to eachother “McDooonalds, McDooonalds….Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut….Pizza Hut”. The funny thing is there are gestures that you make with your arms that go along with the song that we always do when we sing too. So, yeah…we look like idiots pretty much. But to say the documentary moved us is putting it lightly. It is kind of like The Business of Being Born. That one also effected us.

Okay, onto what I was talking about and by the way….Adam and I have yet to step into a McDonalds since watching that documentary which is crazy because Burger King and all of the other fast food joints are the same, I AM 100% SURE!!! I am getting to a point, not just ramblin’ I promise. Stick with me here for just a bit more. In the film they do a little study where they watch some foods for a long period of time to see if the mold, etc. For instance, we’ve ALL found that long lost french fry between our car seat, right? And, it looks the freakin’ same it did the day we bought it in the drive through. Am I correct?

So, Adam came home on Friday with this weird loaf of bread and it said “no preservatives” on it. I also have a loaf of good ol’ Sara Lee in the cupboard. We are going to do our own little study right here on East 17th Street in Cozad, America, people. YES. WE. ARE. I am so serious. Not even yankin’ your chain! ha ha. Anyway one thing that I found interesting is that we cannot find an expiration date on the “no preservatives” bag of bread. I find that a little odd, don’t you? Hmmmmm. The Sara Lee bread expired on January 30th~yes, I know I had expired bread in my cupboard (so shoot me). So, I don’t know I guess we’ll just periodically take a picture and update as we go and see which molds faster and if they start to smell too fast than we may have to nix the whole thing because we just don’t like smelly things. We’d never be good garbage men or good morticians or whatever other smelly things that people do.

WITH preservatives

NO preservatives

The subjects (will be kept at room temperature on top of our fridge-so the cats don't eat them!)
