I remember a few years back being sent on a mission to pickup some iniquitous paper plates by the head cook here at radiointel HQ after work. I decided to stop into Fresh Fields which at the time has since either changed their name to Whole Foods or sold out to the company. When I was unable to find them I inquired with the nearest company "associate, partner, foodspert, etc" and was greeted with an expression of horror and disgust on the clerk's face that you would of thought I was clubbing a baby seal while drilling for oil there in the store upon my request. I guess I wasn't hip at the time to realize how sinful my request was at the time. Since then attitudes have changed there and it has become one of my favorite food stores. Here's one of my favorite recent stories about Whole Foods.... ENJOY!


I couldn't agree more!

PS: So Add... Hipsters never eat with plastic forks and paper plates. My favorite food quote recently at a dinner soirée by a Hipster was "Americans don't eat enough insects". I guess I'll never be a hipster but I do know the difference between cilantro and parsley.


I'll never be a hipster. I'm not svelte at 228 pounds.

Whole Foods has lost huge business in recent years. Their nickname "Whole Paycheck" hasn't helped.


228? what about that demarcation line, that pyschological maginot line above which you have to wire the jaw shut until the weight drops below it? i think to be hip you have to eat as little as possible, just get enough energy to make it thru the next hour or two, barely.

I come from a family that medicated itself on food so I'm an unlikely candidate for eating just enough to have energy to get through the day. However, the more I read about the torture animals go through for our delectation, the more I avoid animal "products."


LOS ANGELES 9-11-09 – Gertrude Baines, who lived to be the world's oldest person on a steady diet of crispy bacon, fried chicken and ice cream, died Friday at a nursing home. She was 115.
Baines, who remarked last year that she enjoyed life so much she wouldn't mind living another 100 years, died in her sleep, said Emma Camanag, administrator at Western Convalescent Hospital.
The centenarian likely suffered a heart attack, said her longtime physician, Dr. Charles Witt. An autopsy was scheduled to determine the cause of death.
"I saw her two days ago, and she was just doing fine," Witt told The Associated Press. "She was in excellent shape. She was mentally alert. She smiled frequently."
