I want to scream, “Boom! In your face!” I’m a freak when it comes to movies where the bad guys lose and the good guys are vindicated. In games and in life I get a perverse pleasure in being vindicated. That is how I feel about the new study released this week that states that, “a large and exhaustive new analysis by a team of internationalscientists found no evidence that eating saturated fat increased heart attacksand other cardiac events.” For all you that told me I couldn’t enjoy my BBQ or that chicken on a bun was a better choice than a hamburger I say, “Please pass the catsup!”
Remember in the eighties when they told us not to eat eggs? Than around 2011 they backpedaled saying eggs were a healthy part of your diet. My mother lived to eighty years old smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and eating everything with butter. All those Europeans that live to be over a hundred years old; they still eat their sausage and butter their toast. There is some chance that Schnapps was a key ingredient to the mix as well though the proof is strongly anecdotal at this point.
I’ve heard it said, “All things in moderation,” but if I’ve made you a grilled cheese sandwich you know this isn’t the case. First you butter the bread than layer the cheese, next you melt butter into a pan and toast the sandwich. It’s delectable and slides down the gullet like pancakes slathered in syrup.
This study is the freedom cry for those of us who love our burgers and fries! It’s the Magna Carta and the remedy for foodie legalism! Studies show coffee is good for you, as are saturated fats. I await proof that Oreo’s are nature’s energy food. The perfect trifecta of taste. Oh vindication how I love the taste of thee!
