Really bad ideas - food dept.
I noticed somewhere that some enterprising soul was making a product called soyrizo -- chorizo sausage but made with soy protein instead of pork. Chorizo is supposed to be nasty and greasy; it is properly made with the cast-off parts of a pig and is delicious. It has no claim to healthfulness and is not part of a good diet. Its transgressiveness is its charm. The idea of Mexican health food is unnatural.
