This has nothing to do with anything, apart from the fact that I think it's hilarious! Everyone go read: Living Oprah. The blogger is doing an experiment in which she does what Oprah tells her. OMG, I'm in love with this blog.
From a post from last week:
Wow. If Oprah's words are to be trusted, vegetable purées just might change the world for the better. I don't know if they're life changers, as she stated, but I am looking forward to sneaking chick peas into the batch of chocolate chip cookies I'm making for my husband and his coworkers. BWAHAHAHA! I don't know if they'll be "Deceptively Delicious" (the title of Jessica Seinfeld's cookbook) but they'll be Deceptively Hilarious when I tell everyone there's beans in their baked goods. Of course, that might become obvious several hours after the cookies are gobbled up. Can I get an "EWWWW"?!
I hope the second segment of the show was effective - where Dr. Oz challenged parents to get and keep their kids healthy. I wasn't shocked to hear that 1 in 5 kids are overweight in this country, but it does make me really sad. He told Oprah's audience that this will be the first generation of kids with lower life expectancy than their parents and it's all because of the obesity epidemic and diabetes. Isn't that heartbreaking? Hopefully a massive adjustment can be made.
Although I have to admit, as a child-free woman, I can understand how hard it must be to tell a screaming kid that he can't have the junk food he wants. I can barely contain myself when it comes to giving my cat the treats he gobbles up like a fiend.
