mmmm…. GROSS.

I’ve been wanting to do a post on eating well for a long time, but it is a trite subject. EVERYONE says to eat healthy, so, blah blah blah you know the drill. I even had planned a postcard piece for it, but stopped after a day or two of sewing because I figured it wasn’t very interesting compared to my other planned project. Here’s the rough sketch:

Pretty obvious, right? I’d say so. No need to spend hours sewing that message. It’s already everywhere.

Today, Yahoo featured quite a story. This is something I had actually seen in the special features of the Super Size Me documentary: compared to standard sandwiches covered in healthy fluffy green and white mold, the McDonald’s equivalents oozed and turned black. The fries never molded. (Ever found that rogue fry in the back seat of your car 3 months after you had fast food? Yup, same idea.) Artist Sally Davies did a project documenting how a Happy Meal never molded. Check it out! I don’t know about you, but this just gave me added reasons to stay away from fast food!

Oh, and by the way: I’m on Twitter. Under “Be Nice Project.” I hope you’ll follow along!
