Female Speaker 1: On Cookus Interruptus, we like to use whole foods. What is a whole food? Well, the best way to answer that is to ask yourself four questions. The first one is, can you imagine it growing. The second one is, how many ingredients does it have. The third one is what happened to the food since it was harvested. And the fourth one is, are all of the edible parts of the food still there or has something been removed. So now I am going to explain each one of those in a little more detail.
Okay, the first question was, can you imagine it growing like, I can imagine an orange growing on a tree or a red bell pepper, I’ve got some jalapeno peppers growing in my backyard. I grew up in Kansas, so I know what wheat fields look like. I am growing corn right now, it’s really cool. I know what those foods look like but something like this, which is fine and everything but it doesn’t grow anywhere. How many ingredients does it have? This is a good example of that too because our whole food only has one ingredient, itself, like this pretty little bell pepper doesn’t have to have a list of ingredients on it because it just has one, whereas something like this has a big ol' long list of stuff, most of them, I don’t even know what they are, some of them I do. And --
Male Speaker: It has water.
Female Speaker 1: Yeah, it does have water. We know that list only -- yeah you’re such a nice man. The third question was what happened to the food since it was harvested? That’s kind of a whole consciousness being about knowing where the food first appeared in nature and what kind of things happened to it by the time you bought it in the store. The last one, have any of the original edible part has been removed like olive oil, this is beautiful organic extra virgin olive oil, great product. I use it, I love it, but it’s not a whole food; it’s just the oil from the olives, not the whole olive, or orange juice, this is good, orange juice is good but it’s not a whole food, it’s just the gist from the orange, and you didn’t get all of their pulp and their riboflavins, and a lot of things that are in the orange you didn’t get. So the thing to remember about --
Female Speaker 2: Oh, I think she had a facelift.
Female Speaker 1: Hey Jay.
Female Speaker 2: Oh, she totally had a facelift. You know that when she was skydiving and it just didn’t go right.
Female Speaker 1: The thing to remember about whole foods is when you eat a food that’s not whole --
Female Speaker 2: Okay, I’ll see you a time.
Female Speaker 1: You intent to crave the missing part --
Female Speaker 2: I’ll bring that for you man, okay right.
Female Speaker 1: which is kind of --
Female Speaker 2: Where is Wakeen? Have you seen him?
Female Speaker 1: You know --
Female Speaker 2: I haven’t seen him since this morning.
Female Speaker 1: Steve, could you --
Female Speaker 2: Because today piano day or --
Female Speaker 1: Wait, no we know where he is but you should know.
Female Speaker 2: I gave him my cell phone.
Female Speaker 1: It’s like a whole food. You should know where the whole food came from, you should know where your child is everyday, that -- kind of like that.
