Palm oil

As some of you might be aware, palm oil is a big problem environmentally.  The crap is in all sorts of foods, particularly junky ones, and also in a lot of (even "high-end") soaps.

Since I cottoned on to this, I've taken a look at a range of stuff we use... and at the time, found that there were no substitutes for the instant noodles that we were getting.  Now, we don't eat /that many/ instant noodles, but occasionally, they just hit the spot (and Cuddlefairy gets cravings.  No arguing with hormones).

However, last night, I was sent out late at night to get bread for cuddlefairy's lunches.  All our local stuff was closed, as was the nearby stupor market, so I was forced to go quite out of my way, to a Woolworths.  Whilst there, I stocked up on Fry's veggie burgers, and out of idle curiosity, took  a look at the "Woolworths select" branded instant-noodles.  Vegan.  Canola oil.

So I grabbed MANY MANY packets.  And was then faced with supermarket queue shame.

*meep*

Shame?

Just say your partner's pregnant. It is your duty as a father-to-be to go out and buy whatever she asks for. ;-p

"I WANT FIFTY PACKETS OF INSTANT NOODLES NOW! MY HORMONES DEMAND NOW, AND FOR THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS!"

Interesting how you can never make assumptions regarding the source of a product you desire. Like Woolworths home-brand and fussy vegan environmentally conscious go hand in hand?
