Look Away, Look Aweigh, Look Awhey… #socs

I worked for a company that made breadings for chicken and fish, among other things, and one of the first things I learned was that whey powder added to the breader would make that golden brown color that makes deep-fried foods look so tasty. Later I learned that whey powder was good when added to smoothies, and that protein powder like you buy at GNC was essentially whey powder.

Is GNC even still a thing anymore? I just checked and yes, it is. As of 2:30 on Friday, its stock is up 0.04 to $2 a share.

I weigh too much. I figure I need to lose 100 lb. (45 kg) before they’ll do any surgery on my knees. Nutri-system is too expensive and formal diets (e.g. the South Beach diet) are a pain in the ass. The last few days I’ve been trying to eat half of what I usually eat. So far, it’s too early to tell, but if I can get rid of the weight that way, that might be the best solution.

Finally, The Beatles with “Blue Jay Way,” from Magical Mystery Tour.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Sara Lee all-butter Chocolate Cake. Just because I’m me, I deserve Sara Lee!

I know, one minute I’m talking about needing to lose weight, the next I’m talking about all-butter cake…
