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.
