Nerd Alert!

I'm trying, but do you ever get the feeling that Karma is trying to kick your ass?

It's an excuse, forgive the language. I'm just feeling that overwhelming urge to shoot myself in the leg. I refuse to do it. Overwhelmed with over analyzing, who does that? Obviously I do!

I trying to keep up my routines... breakfast is the big wow factor.

BUT... This past week I have not indulged in my breakfast-on-the-go-oatmeal. I just recently learned that Almond Breeze Almond milk (unsweetened and original) has a substance called Carrageenan which if undegraded could cause gastrointestinal problems, or cancers. I can't be certain if my almond milk is degraded or undergraded. It's scary to know these things and wonder about the FDA approval like Carrageenan. How does one go about being healthy when all our food is filled with fillers, substances, preservatives, additives or anything else I can't pronounce on a label. Now don't get me wrong I am NO Bill The Science Guy, but when I hear this, especially when I'm doing my best to have a healthy lifestyle and the object is to lose weight, it's enough to start freaking me out!

I'm not a science nerd, I promise. It's just time to look a little harder on the ingredient list. Now don't feel too bad for me. I have learned to make my own almond milk. I know... look at me! Who knew and it's not to difficult or time consuming. I'm lazy and perfectionist, this alone drives me to procrastinate, but that's another tale for another time.
