Like, for example, how people view fad-diets (or “Lifestyle Changes”). For anyone who has never heard of or read the Gallery of Regrettable Foods I am taking a moment to point you to the online site today. Take a few minutes to gander at the recipes, advice and ads that used to appear, not ALL that long ago, in cookbooks and on those snail-mail packs of recipe cards.
I remember those sorts of ghastly food idea recipe cards coming in the mail to our own home growing up. We laugh now to see such awful recipes and advice.
What do we think people 20 or 30 years down the line will think of the South Beach, Atkins, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, etc that has become such an iconic way of life today? What will the future mock of our own current trends in diet advice and oh-so-factual health tips? Will we progress in 20 years’ time to the point when all the current crazes will be the fodder for amusing books about silly trends in food history? One can only hope.
AND since it is Friday I also leave you with a cat. Because who COULDN’T use a nice cat picture right before the weekend? Especially an electronic and therefore not sharp and pointy or allergy-triggering cat?
