Junk News IX: Perez Hilton – Fat Ass Alert

I just read this and had to post it to you. Here’s an excerpt from Perez’s post:

After leaving her Jenny Craig regiment, the former Cheers cast member started to indulge in all the things she was never allowed to have. “My food demons are Chinese food, sugar, butter. A lot of butter.

Didn’t I just talk about Chinese food (or Chinese-American, to be more specific) the other day? Yep, sure did. ;)

Now there are a lot of things that Kristie can do AND STILL KEEP HER JUNK!! One really good instance is with butter. Instead of regular butter, she can use organic ghee. According to food-india.com, Ghee is a clarified butter without any solid milk particles or water. Now as far as the sugar…we’ll definitely talk about that more in Healthy Junk. Why? Because this entire post is about sugar and the control of it. Continue reading

The Healthy Junk Chronicles: My Experiment with Junk I

Instead of going through the poetic prose I may use when writing for Fight dis-ease!, I’m just going to come out and say it: I got laid off of my corporate job recently. My official termination date has not approached as yet but I was still going into survival mode. Going in and out of a “funk,” I got the foods that were cheap and easiest. I got junk.

In New York City, there are many food staples – pizza Pizza and hot dogs Hot Dog are at the top of the list. However, in the “hood,” there is one food that soars above the rest…and it’s one of the worst junk foods known to man – 4 Chicken Wings and French Fries (or some kind of Fried Rice) from any Chinese-American Food Store. Chicken Wings w/French Fries

I made a conscious decision to no longer eat pork at 11 years old. I haven’t eaten hog dogs since (so that’s out)! I do eat pizza but since dairy and I don’t get along like we used to (we’ll talk about that later), I couldn’t eat too much of it.

For 9 months, I haven’t eaten chicken. A month ago, I decided to take a break from seafood (I’ll talk about Elimination Diets on Fight dis-ease! in the future). Since taking that break, I started eating chicken again. Now mind you, seafood is NOT fish but for some reason (or another), I came right back to chicken. Continue reading

The Healthy Junk Chronicles: What’s really good?

Hey you! :D

Before I get into the nitty gritty, I wanted to explain a couple of things about Healthy Junk, as well as a little bit about myself.

I have another blog called Fight dis-ease! through Holistic Health, which should be somewhere within this blog. Even though I have fun in there, I try to keep it more on the professional side.

Since this blog is called “Healthy Junk,” you will have to expect another side of me to come out here – the side that is quirky, crazy, and beautifully silly as hell. :) I’ma keep it real with cha! Most definitely. ;)

On the lighter side of health, I’m going to touch lightly on certain topics. A number of them, I’m not going to get into detail about. I’ll refer those detailed items to the Fight dis-ease! site. I’ll try to intertwine the two sites but that won’t be for a while. I got too much to talk about on both sides to get them integrated just yet.

I’m not just going to talk about junk food on this site either. No siree! I’m going to talk about a number of products that you can buy on the cheap. I’m also going to include links to certain websites to get coupons, etc. for your healthy junk. Shoo, junk food is cheap. Even though healthy junk is more expensive, let’s make sure we get as many discounts as we can so we can enjoy our luxurious and healthy junk without regret.

Ask me a question on Healthy Junk…please! I’ll do my best to answer it. I maybe a bit on the harsh side. I might cuss here and there. It’s ok. Let enjoy the ride. Laugh a little. Isn’t that what you do anyway when you eat your regular junk food? :p

We’re gonna take this Healthy Junk Food Bus full throttle. Don’t worry, the ride will be smooth and the driver (that’s me) will give you a nice, guided tour of how you can eat healthier and live healthier, for less.

There is a downside to Healthy Junk. I’m not Ideal Bite. I can’t give you the Chicago, San Francisco, or London  versions of Healthy Junk. Sorry Charlie. :( If I do give any information on food and it’s not a national chain, then it will be local to the NY area…and when I say NY, I mean NYC. So if you’re from Barbados, you betta ask Aunt Jean to send you these items STAT, the next time Cousin Suzette comes to town. :))

Alright folks, that’s it for now. Just to give you a summary of what I have posted, the following things are going to happen on Healthy Junk:

  • NO Yoga talk (from a serious standpoint anyway)
  • NO Professional Mannerisms (unless someone is forcing me to…and I don’t see that happening in MY future!)
  • NO BS (that means BullShit for those who figured I wasn’t going to say it)
  • Lots of good information that will cover your health from head to toe, from the inside out (wait a minute…that’s for my other blog…I’ll leave it here too ;))
  • I may do some complaining here and there. I expect you to do the same.

If you’re gonna have junk, it might as well be HEALTHY JUNK! Laters. b-)
