The bliss point.

Bliss point?? What is that???

Oh, I'm so glad you asked!

The bliss point is the PERFECT blend of salt, sugar and fat that makes a food irresistible to us. These foods are not only irresistible, they are virtually impossible to stop eating. Millions of dollars are spent in the food industry to create this perfect profile, a profile that is not only perfectly tasty to us, but also doesn't overwhelm our taste buds, so that we have to eat more. Examples of these types of foods are soda pop and potato chips. The bliss point does not exist in whole foods, ever.

Ever noticed how you never get full on chips? What would happen if you just kept eating them- would you ever be full?? Would you explode? What?

This is the bliss point in action. When is the last time you ate multiple apples, or more than one plain potato? Never, right? However, take that potato, add some salt, sugar and fat, and you just can't get enough.

Many pasta sauces — whether cheesy, chunky or light — have one feature in common: The largest ingredient, after tomatoes, is sugar. A mere half-cup of Prego Traditional pasta sauce, for instance, has the equivalent of more than two teaspoons of sugar, as much as two-plus Oreo cookies. It also delivers one-third of the sodium recommended for a majority of American adults for an entire day. WTF?? I damn sure don't want to eat sugar in my pasta sauce.

The amount of money and time that is spent trying to create foods that are not only irresistible to us, but that we don't want to stop eating, is overwhelming. The reason for this is simple. Money. The health of our country is suffering as processed food companies are getting richer and richer.

Now you know.

Oh, I almost forgot. My french toast... delicious, but without a bliss point I am afraid.

Whole wheat bread

Egg whites

Almond milk

Whey protein powder

Nut butter

Coconut oil


Whip the egg whites, protein powder, almond milk, and cinnamon together. Submerge bread until saturated. Cook on a skillet coated with coconut oil until done.

Top with nut butter, fruit, etc...
