Rants, Rules & Recipes

An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RULE: Surround Yourself with Healthy People

thin dinnersThe next time you are out to eat, look around you.  Notice the number of obese people in the restaurant patrons and employees.  This is a good indicator of whether obese people like this restaurant you’ve chosen.  If you frequent overweight feeding spots, you are likely on your way to joining the millions of hefty Americans, because guess what packs on the pounds? Unhealthy, processed starchy, salty, sugary foods.  It is also likely that the entrée you order at this overweight-friendly franchise will be significantly more food than any single human being needs to ingest at one sitting.  And guess what else packs on the pounds? Too much food!

We as Americans, are over fed and under nourished. Obese, but empty.

Now, start to notice where the thin, fit, happy-looking folks graze.  Join them.  There is a reason they are  fit and happy.  It’s because they are eating delicious, real foods.  I guarantee, they are eating vegetables.  They are at farmer’s markets and health foods stores.  They are eating at sushi restaurants, at home or at non-franchised restaurants eating locally grown foods.   They eat the real, natural unprocessed foods we are intended to eat.  The foods that heal and nourish us.  The foods that keep us healthy.

So treat yourself to these healthful places; discover nutritious and delicious recipes and locally grown venues.

    There was a time I could actually dine at an “all-you-can-eat” buffet type restaurant — the very thought of them now makes me sick! We now refer to them as “feeding troughs” — and all the little pigs line up for their daily allotment of slop.

      Me too! I used to put the ‘hurt’ on any Chinese all you can eat buffet! Now, thankfully, I can’t remember the last time I’ve been to one !
