My package of linguine has a little splashy note down in the bottom corner, reminiscent of the general mills food pyramid splashes:
“Pasta and Other Complex Carbohydrates are the Preferred Fuel for the Brain and Body. A Nutrition Message for the American Dietetic Association.”
Which leads me to ask: preferred by whom, precisely? The American Council of Pasta Manufacturers? The Italian Restaurant Coalition? Citizens Against Atkins? Carbohydrate Loaders United? Your Neighborhood Neuron Association? Semolina Watch (a 501(c)(3) organization)?
I hate statements like that.
