I missed the information about Kashi. I did notice they have increased the amount of sugar in it. It used to be edible.

Apparently this guy is too young to remember margarine. Back in the 60s we learned to just go around the outside edges of the supermarket and forget about the middle. Especially avoid displays at the ends of the aisles.

I thought everybody knew you can't buy food in the supermarket! Fake food is the American way. Talk to any European who visits here. I think in England and the rest of the world they still have food.

You can still buy some food; it just costs more than the processed substitute. Why is brown rice more expensive than white? And why can't I find whole oats at all?

Living in a rural, agricultural area without high-end specialty shops means I can't get many basic agricutural products, though. My choices are local groceries, one chain grocery, and the Super Wal-mart. I can get local produce in summer and local beef, chicken, and eggs. But that leaves out grains entirely. Ever few months I drive to "town" and pick up a 25-pound bag of flour, and I just eat rolled oats. It's hard to find corn meal that isn't self-rising. Heck, it's hard to find corn meal, not "corn meal mix" containing sugar and who knows what else.

There isn't much out there labeled as being 100% organic. This is so sad what they've done to us.
