Then I get to the cracker isle, and I decide to look at the ingredients on the box of Triscuits. I've always thought Triscuits were a good choice. Whole wheat, oil, salt. That's it. No sugar, no partially hydrogenated oils. But the oil in Triscuits is palm oil. I've been reading a lot lately about the creation of palm oil is very bad for the planet.
Well, darn it. Sometimes, I just get overwhelmed with it all. I almost headed straight for the pop tarts. But I didn't.
I held off buying syrup. We'll just be syrupless until I decide what to do. I'm thinking this is going to force me to finally just make the rest of my family suck it up and start eating the healthier real syrup.
I did buy the Triscuits. But I'm going to find out if I can find a better substitute for them before I buy them again.
Another day in green-land. Still plugging along. Just wanted to let you know if sometimes you feel like throwing in the organic towel, you're not alone.
