For all those people who have given carbs a bad rap and focused far too much on protein, this is an interesting little bit of news. It’s not earth-shaking, but for the mainstream media, it’s not half bad. A far cry from what we usually read…you’ll notice a general lack of animal products listed (any hot chocolate can be made with soymilk, if desired) and an emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and fiber. Perhaps we are making some progress? Now, if we can just convince the kids.
Yes, it's a sad state of affairs that the news must remind us to eat fruits and vegetables...and speaking of healthy foods, Toni, I'm sending you an email regarding Expo East.
