In your opinion, what food (or "food product") symbolizes or represents all that is wrong with the Neolothic Diet? A question was asked previously about the worst neolithic ingredient, but I'm curious about what food item that non-paleo folks eat on a regular basis you consider the most heinous.
Donuts deep-fried in 1 day old, continuously heated partially hydrogenated soybean oil, with a thick layer of high fructose corn syrup coating. Extra points if it has a fake strawberry fruit filling with additional HCFS and FD&C red 40 aluminum lake.
Hits all the bases: Gluten, fructose, oxidized PUFA's, AGE's, and a possibly carcinogenic food additive for good measure.
IT EXISTS SOMEWHERE.
Store-bought sheet cakes. Yes, even Costco and Sam's Club cakes.
Need I go on...?!
Any Neo food that tries to pass itself off as healthy. I hate finding the words "All Natural" only to find a long list of junk ingredients. I think stuff like Sun Chips, Power Bars, Snack Wells, 100 cal snacks, Sugar Free Candy, Gluten Free waffles should be banned for false advertising. My new pet peeve is Veggie Chips. It's a potato chip that is flavored and colored to immitate a vegetable. My friend was buying them thinking she was making a healthy choice until I read the ingredients to her. Don't get me started on all natural ice creams. GRR.
