Eating my salmon (in a pouch) at my desk today, trying to get through some work and eat fairly healthy and conveniently. A coworker came in to tell me all about the newest research on mercury, and the problems with tuna and farmed salmon and can linings, etc. This is the same coworker who talked about the fruit I consume and the amount of sugar that's in it and the kidney problems that my spinach could aggravate.
You know what? I know. Give me a food, and I will tell you why it's bad for me to eat it. But since my only alternative is starving -- which is also not all that healthy -- I'm going to make my choices and try to feel good about them. And you know what? I have deadlines. I don't have any desire for unsolicited discussions about food for the entire eight hours we share an office and I'm trying to justify the fact that I draw a paycheck here.
