Day 160- Nutrition Bite

Most popular foods in America are hamburgers, hot dogs, french fries, Oreo cookies, sodas, pizza, chicken tenders, ice cream, donuts, and potato chips. We wonder why are nation has high obesity rates... These processed foods not only can cause obesity but clog your arteries, cause high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, etc... We need to re-evaluate foods that are considered popular and start making vegetable and fruits high on the popularity list.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
Several months ago in NYC, I dropped in for a meal at a 'ma and pa' joint in Harlem. I was amused with the vegetable section on the menu -- kidneys beans, coleslaw, macaroni salad, and potato salad. One diner ordered grits, and the cook placed the largest slab of butter that I have ever seen into the grits. I was amazed with the grease, butter, and unhealthy selections. Knowledge is a major key to change!!
