My girlfriend is trying to make me eat healthier food. 

I had to wait around for her in Whole Foods yesterday and I was bored so I started reading the ingredients on the health conscious energy drinks. 

One of the drinks claimed that its ingredients are "a healthy blend of caffeine and guarana"

I think thats a bit cheeky. Those are the same ingredients as all the other energy drinks. 

Is that how Whole Foods make their food healthier, with semantics?

Using that method Coffee is a healthy energy drink.  A healthy blend of Caffeine and Milk.

Whilst I was in Whole Foods I thought I'd try it out. So I tried to convince my girlfriend that New York Style Cheesecake is a healthy blend of Eggs, Cream Cheese, Butter, Cinnamon, Sugar  and Graham Cracker Crumbs.

It didn't work.

Hmm,health shops.....they are a misnomer.

Read labels as much as you can in those places,Eddie.

When I'm bored at the weekend I sometimes go in Holland and Barratt to ask for health foods that don't exist. People in health shops love to tell you things like "you need more B5 complex" when really what they mean is "you need to stop drinking so much beer". In response to what I believe is just showing off, I ask for things like browentia extract and eponatia oils. That will teach them.
