I know we've all heard the ridiculous comments by those that just don't get our choice to EAT REAL 100% NON PROCESSED, NON CHEMICAL LADEN FOODS!! These comments usually come from the diet soda swigging, frozen food eating people.
The comment of my day was from a few coworkers who actually were open to trying a piece of the carrot cake I made (a ridiculously large pyrex full of carrot cake to be exact). Now keep in mind being its carrot cake it has (surprise) CARROTS, in addition to ground walnuts, brazil nuts, raisins, some spice...and coconut frosting.
I was told:
- "it looks like carrot cake"
- "it smells like carrot cake"
and my personal favorite that came next was "but you shouldn't call it carrot cake - you should call it vegetable cake" I said WHY? and was told "well its not like real carrot cake" So my response was - you're telling me that the stuff that comes in a powder form in a box is more REAL that the actual CARROT pulp that is a result of juicing REAL CARROTS????
Now I do get when people eat raw pizza and compare it to its SAD counterpart and remark that while its good it really can't compare - see that is easy for me to comprehend because in nature there is no pizza naturally but a CARROT...a cake made of carrot is no doubt carrot cake.... SOOOOO SOOO SAD when fake, processed food has come to be REAL when the REAL COUNTERPART is thought of as weird!!!
Ok - enough with my ranting - I'd love to hear everyone elses stories...
happy wednesday :)
