Who cares?

I eat for nutrition anyways, I run/lift 5-6 times a week, ski and golf so I try to prepare most if not all of my food. It's cheaper and just as nutrient dense as the mega super duper free range cruelty free options at whole foods 🙄

Oh well in that case you’re an expert then! Continue ignorantly ranting sir/ma’am.

At least I'm not unhinged lol, go for a run pal.

Well…you are rather unhinged if you believe your original comment. You don’t know what you’re talking about in regards to the content of the food you’re eating, where it comes from, and what’s in it. Otherwise you wouldn’t of made your original comment. Go read about industrial agriculture, work in the supply chain for a while, and then reassess if your current opinion is actually accurate. Spoiler, you’ll find it’s not. I already went for a run, not sure what you’re driving at with the suggestion though. Merry Christmas.

LOL why would I do any of that? I'm sorry you're upset by it, but it's just an opinion. And it's from a TV show LOL, it's not even my own. If you want to go buy groceries for 50% upcharge because they put a pillow under the chickens ass and that somehow makes it taste better to you, be my guest, I don't care. The amount of protein and nutrients per serving size of any item you buy at whole foods is the same as that item purchased elsewhere.

Was the whole foods chicken fed a better diet? probably. Was the edamame grown in better conditions? probably. Have I ever been able to tell the difference? No. Has anyone ever explicitly explained how one would impact my health over the other? Not to my satisfaction. That's how I arrive at that conclusion.

Your name is jogging music, I figured you enjoyed running. I wasn't driving at anything. You should take this opportunity to tell me to go F myself, given my name :D

The feed and the soil conditions have a lot to do with what ends up in our bodies. It goes beyond the macro nutrient profile that drives your choice. Wasn’t aware you’re quoting a show, but okay if you say so.

Theres a strong correlation between cancer rates and the industrial agriculture that we’ve moved into. A lot of the reason why stop and shop is able to sell produce cheaper is because the product is created purely for yield. Lot of folks have become aware of this. That’s why there is a market for places like wholefoods and other organic/all natural markets. Is some of it bullshit marketing ploys like you’ve described? Of course. But it’s not all bullshit. As you can guess I work on that side, so I feel a need to defend it. But it’s not all sipping the kool-aid, there’s a health crisis that can be largely traced back to the content of our food.

And just because someone disagrees with you doesn’t make them ‘upset’. Just pointing out the flaw in your opinion. Take care.

Edit: sorry - looking back at some of comments to you, and they were rather shitty and condescending. Sorry friend.
