Skinny girl margaritas, made famous by founder Bethenny Frankel of Real Desperate Housewives of New York, has been pulled from the shelves at Whole Foods stores due to a synthetic ingredient used as a preservative. Whole Foods policy is to not offer any products with synthetic, or “unnatural ingredients” at its stores. Skinny Girl is also being sued for false advertising by including “all natural” on the label. Why do I care? I don’t, but the same thing happened to Kashi last week. As E! network would say…”Trend Alert!”.

I’m a big fan of calorie counts clearly posted on restaurants menus, but this is a surprising place to find such information. (Hint: a bag of peanuts is 960 calories!)
A very interesting examination by Dr Stewart Segal at KevinMD.com on the true meaning of ‘healthy’.
