Culinary no-no's


America is too fat.

We know this is true because government says so.

Government is under the assumption because it is all-knowing that it is best-equipped to provide solutions to our expanding girth.

So it raises taxes on fatty foods.

It bans toys in Happy Meals.

It restricts the number of fast food restaurants that can open.

It tells restaurants they must reduce the amount of salt in their menu items.

It tells restaurants they must display the calories in each food item.

It declares that the manufacturer of
Cheerios has made “serious violations of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) and the applicable regulations in Title 21, Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR)” by advertising that eating the cereal can reduce cholesterol and that “failure to promptly correct the violations may result in enforcement action without further notice. Enforcement action may include seizure of violative products and/or injunction against the manufacturers and distributors of violative products.”

Our top leader’s wife……

Makes obesity her personal campaign. So she plants a garden at the White House.

And grows vegetables to urge children to eat healthier.

Last week, Natasha Mozgovaya of reported on her visit to the garden. The First Lady wasn’t there; however the assistant White House chef was, along with Robin Schepper, director of Mrs. Obama's "Let's Move" anti-obesity program. Mozgovaya writes:

“She (Schepper) called Americans' bulging waistlines a problem of epidemic proportions that was costing the U.S. health-care system $3 billion a year.”

Of course, all of this faux concern is so much hypocrisy.

Who doesn't love.....

The New York Times reports:

“Americans now eat an average of 33 pounds of cheese a year, nearly triple the 1970 rate. Cheese has become the largest source of saturated fat; an ounce of many cheeses contains as much saturated fat as a glass of whole milk.

When Michelle Obama implored restaurateurs in September to help fight obesity, she cited the proliferation of cheeseburgers and macaroni and cheese. ‘I want to challenge every restaurant to offer healthy menu options,’ she told the National Restaurant Association’s annual meeting.”

Those paragraphs are contained in what has been termed a "disturbing" front page expose by the Times with a headline reprinted on that says it all:

USDA sells cheese while warning against eating it

Agency helps Domino's, Taco Bell, others push fat-laden products but fights obesity

The lengthy article is worth the read.

As good as the Times journalistic effort is, the newspaper also shares in the hypocrisy.
