Fat Cell Explosion and Wholesome Books

Recently, I bought boneless chicken breasts at a grocery store that looked more like turkey breasts. If those chickens wore bras, Mother Hen would have had to special order bras to fit their fifty-two double F breast size. To put it simply, one breast could have easily fed a family of four.

What’s happening to our food?

This past week there was a newspaper article about watermelons exploding in China. It seems that farmers fed the melons overdoses of growth chemicals during rainy weather.

Plants + Water + Chemicals = BOOM!

Fat cells are becoming the new fad in our population. Why? This is my highly unscientific theory. First of all, many of us don’t eat right. Eating large portions of fast food too often and making poor snack choices have become a way of life for many. Secondly, chemicals are fed to plants and animals to plump them up and get them to the market faster. We ingest those chemicals which, in turn, cause us to “grow.” If we don’t make healthy food choices and we continue to eat the fast food way, we’re getting a double whammy of enhanced foods.  

There will be consequences if we don’t start to change our ways. I can see the headlines now:  “BOOM! American Population Literally Explodes!” And there we are – all over the front page! 

Don’t wait a minute longer. We may not be able to save ourselves, but we can save our kids by getting them on the road to healthy eating. You can start by following these tongue-in-cheek suggestions.

Eat oatmeal because your mother said it was good for you.

Buy organic, but be prepared to pay through the nose and have little left to feed the stomach.

Grow your own food. Note:  Chickens and cows are not easy to grow.

Better yet, stop eating food and feed your brain. Have your kids devour these wholesome books instead.

For Girls:  Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett, Heidi by Johanna Spyri

For Boys:  Hans Brinker or The Silver Skates by Mary Mapes Dodge, Call of the Wild and White Fang by Jack London, Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder, Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
