Rants, Rules & Recipes

An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance

RANT: Home of the Brave (and the Obese)

America. Home of the Brave. We owe so much to those who came before us. We are a lucky nation; a prideful nation. Unfortnately over the years, we’ve also become the most OBESE nation.

Pssst…. I’ll give you a hint as to why…it’s what We The People EAT!

The freedom to eat whatever and whenever we choose.

It’s packaged fake food and portion sizes!

So as you belly-up to your family’s 4th of July BBQ, try and leave a small portion of your plate unfilled. And know that there ARE tasty treats whose first ingredient isn’t processed meat, mayonnaise or Blue Lake Dye #6.

Decide for yourself, what is one thing you can do for your health (and, heck while you’re at it, your country) this 4th?  Consider sampling the veggie tray, maybe bring a Berry Bowl or Summer Corn Salad?

I’m not saying you can’t indulge a little: enjoy the fireworks and pig parts, but see if you can sneak in some greens between cold beers.  Your body’d think that’d be Yankee-Doodle-Dandy.  God Bless America.IMG_2284

    Did you know that once they used blue dye for enteral hospital feeds, and patients died. They actually had blue stained organs. Of course, they stopped using blue dye.
