Another glorious Sunday and a rest from the silliness we call politics in this country. As usual I have to say something when I smell something.
Going out to eat…..I remember back in the day when we went out to eat on Sundays and special occasions like birthdays, Monday’s Day, etc. Nowadays it seems we are all too damn busy to eat at home and as you would think food fads come and go….
In the town where I live a decade ago there was a Mexican restaurant on every corner…they were more popular than that coffee chain that does not have a small coffee……and now slowly the Mexican places have been replaced with a Sushi joint…..me? I still seek out Mexican for I refuse to eat a dead raw fish.
But to be helpful to my readers…..is Sushi all that healthy? What about granola?
Is popcorn good for you? What about pizza, orange juice or sushi? Or frozen yogurt, pork chops or quinoa?
Which foods are healthy? In principle, it’s a simple enough question, and a person who wishes to eat more healthily should reasonably expect to know which foods to choose at the supermarket and which to avoid.
Unfortunately, the answer is anything but simple.
The Food and Drug Administration recently agreed to review its standards for what foods can be called “healthy,” a move that highlights how much of our nutritional knowledge has changed in recent years – and how much remains unknown.
You are what you eat. Me? I am meat and potatoes with gravy and bread…..throw in a few veggies for a good measure.
Please have a good day and I will return Monday for more and better stuff…….chuq
