so last week a friend of mine that i've known for almost 15 years stayed with us for a week. the first day she was here she criticized our food choices. my kids love to eat fruit, and they'd already consumed apples and oranges at snacktime and wanted another apple but i told them no because we'd be eating dinner soon. her comment was "plus apples have a lot of sugar" really? i didn't see her eat a single morsel of fresh produce the entire week she was here. all she ate was special k bars, and the fruit she ate was from fruit cups, which are swimming in syrup and sugar! then i was making a salad from a bagged American salad blend, and she said "you know iceberg lettuce is the worst kind of lettuce you can eat right?" jesus! i felt like punching her in the throat lol. atleast i ATE a salad. would that have bothered you too or am i being sensitive?Answer Question
Not a friend, but a co-worker. So annoying.

It probably would have bothered me a little too. It's likely I would have said something about her eating fruit cups with sugar and not eating any salad as opposed to eating none. In fact, the syrup that her fruit was sitting in was very likely highly processed if it was sugar at all. Better to get the sugar naturally than through the chemistry experiment that was her fruit salad.
And FWIW, while there might not be that much nutritional value to iceberg lettuce, it's still pretty good to snack on. I like to put tuna or chicken salad in a leaf and eat it like a burrito. LOL.

Next question overall
Did you have to take a baby aspirin during pregnancy? If so, for how long?
