Really, an FM radio station that's all oldie-goldies and no commercials? Seriously? KWLZ 96.3.
Now that I have the Bluetooth headphones, I'm more likely to be on SomaFM again, a streaming service out of the Bay Area. Send 'em some dollars if you appreciate commercial free streams.
Warming to my subject: pumpkin pie. More seriously, I think Linus Pauling somewhat confirmed our intuition that our bodies depend on the outside world for some macro-molecules. It's not just low level elements a body craves, like phosphorous, the flame of life (ATP cycle), but vitamins, and who knows what else?
Sure, it all "breaks down" in digestion but it could be a side effect, some enzyme spike thanks to that pumpkin pie you just baked, yourself, from fresh ingredients. Like a hormone.
Am I saying you'll lose weight baking pumpkin pie? No. The two shells I filled asked for a cup and a half of white refined sugar. That's not a trivial ingredient even for royalty, going back not so far.
Sugar was kept on a shelf for special occasions, not pumped through on virtual IV, starting with sweetened cereals. They'd rot our teeth for free in exchange for cartoons. Hey, everything in moderation. Go crazy with the Froot Loops or Cocoa Krispies (one of my faves) once in a blue moon.
What might you get from pumpkin pie in the fall, the hemisphere returning to Winter? C'mon, right? Sure it's psychological, as if if what, like "psychological" doesn't matter? Duh it does, right?
But I'm thinking more than that, some actual chemical, released through special food interactions. I bet the French have whole bookshelves devoted to this subject am I right?
Let me check the frequency of this station again: 96.3 KWLZ-FM.
