Simple Diet Choices

Posted in Food & Drink, Society on June 20th, 2015

Liberals and Progressives within America’s borders love to rant, rail, and rave about “food deserts” and “food insecurity” and at the same time about America’s “obesity epidemic,” which they oddly and counterintuitively claim disproportionately impacts the same demographics who are supposedly suffering under those “food deserts” and “food insecurity.”

In some ways the lament of the Liberals and Progressives makes a certain logical sense. Within their internal logic structure outcomes can never be because of choices. Hence, all diet-related issues and outcome must be due to external, societal oppression and must be rectified by the state.

Look, I like fast food as much as the next person, probably even more than most do, but I make the choice not to try to make it mainstay of my diet. Others, especially those who are supposedly The Poor, should make the same choice. Doing so would improve both their economic and health outcomes, the latter dramatically.

And, while the Left and their minority tenants make a lot of excuses for why simple shopping and cooking is beyond the capacity of the poor, that’s all they are – excuses. Even in New York City it’s not that difficult to eat healthily for minimal expenditures – and I’m not talking about trying to live on a diet of bean, rice, and pasta.

All this takes is the will to make simple diet choices and to learn – there’s an internet! – how to enact them. If that’s actually and truthfully too much for some, then that’s simply evolution speaking.

Mmmmm….Black Tea

I’m really more of a coffee drinker but now and then I could really go for a hot cup of black tea. It’s even better if you put some cream in it. 😉

There’s nothing quite as invigorating and satisfying in the morning than starting it off with some fine, hot Caffè Americano. It’s most definitely one of the best ways of beginning any day.

Of course, there’s variations on the theme when it comes to the mug…

Just as there’s many equally delightful choices for the coffee in the mug and what’s served with it. 😉 Enjoy your day!
