Fat-Free Half-and-Half

At first, this seemed like the best food! Really, cream with no fat, doesn't that sound fabulous?

So we bought some last night to make our Ikea meatballs a little less "bad for you" (you have to make the cream sauce with cream).

After I made it, while waiting for everything to be done, I read the ingredients, wondering what made this miracle food such a miracle. Well, horror upon horrors, it is corn syrup that makes it sooo good.

Part of our lifestyle change is cutting out this awful perversion of corn from our diets.

We'll be going back to whole fat half and half (when needed occasionally), thank you very much.

You sure that wasn't High Fructose Corn Syrup? (Something much worse and very different from corn syrup.)

You take the natural fats out of food (like non-whole Half and Half) and you end up with bland tasting stuff. Don't fear fat. Fear bad fat - trans fat.

This has been a public service message from the food police. :)
