Healthy Food Ideas

I bought six near-ripe bananas at Safeway this weekend in an effort to have fresh, healthy food in the house. I like the idea of having fresh food in the house for snacking or to use as ingredients, but when you don’t have to make breakfast and lunch and you eat dinner out most of the time, a lot of the food ends up going bad. That is, unless you make a mad dash to eat everything after you realize you have all this food but not much time when it will be good.

I started today with four bananas at the tipping point between ripe and well done, meaning I need to finish the bunch ASAP. I ate one when I got home from work, and that one on the left was gone after this picture was taken. I am contemplating having one more before going to bed, and then eating the last when I wake up.

If I have stomach cramps tomorrow, you’ll know why.

Ronnie Cummins, director of the Organic Consumers Association, says, It will change what parents and schools buy, which will change what manufacturers use in their products. Hidden Dangers is that good. Natural Capitalism author Hunter Lovins adds, When parents watch scientist after scientist describe the dangers of GM foods, I wouldnt want to be a stubborn food service director trying to stand in their way. Produced by Jeffrey Smith, author of the international bestseller Seeds of Deception, the DVDs 28-minute hard-hitting feature highlights shocking research results, inadequate regulations, and corporate control of government. * An investigator reveals that political appointees at the Food and Drug Administration hid GM food risks from the public, and scientists and politicians describe the government approval process as an illusion and façade. * Lab animals and livestock fed GM crops developed serious symptoms and unexplained deaths.

Easy, healthy meals that a 15 year old could make for the family?

Question by wondering mind: Easy, healthy meals that a 15 year old could make for the family?
Something that doesn’t make large amounts so there won’t be leftovers, something that doesn’t take extremely long to make, and something that is healthy and tastes good. I am 15 and want to help my mama out with supper so she won’t be so stressed. We are also trying to eat healthier. Any ideas?

Big salad: lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, cranrasins, croutons.
Salad dressing

Make cheese toasties: Place slices of bread on cookie sheet. Butter and top with cheese slice. Bake or broil in oven and watch for it to melt. Less than 15 if oven and 7 broil. *** Can always brown up ground beef, onion, and add spaghetti sauce and use that as a dipper or topper to the cheese toasties.

Fruit mixture, drink

What if the government could give the the people of America an incentive in living healthy?

Question by Jesus: What if the government could give the the people of America an incentive in living healthy?
I just saw Food Inc. and it had me thinking that most of americans are over their normal weight (including me, that’s why this thought.) What if the government could track a way in knowing we live healthy that gives the people who are trying to live healthy a raise in their current employed jobs!
This seems very far fetch I know and I haven’t thought it all through. But what do you think, if possible how could you help my theory.

Best answer:

Answer by Totalitarianism Sucks
Try it on a state level. It won’t work but someone should do it for kicks.
If you have a state full of healthy people but they don’t manufacture enough goods or provide enough services to pay for the raises on those healthy people, you go bankrupt. And if you raise the pay, you also have to raise the price of the goods you sell which means it costs more for those who can’t necessarily afford it. Those are unintended consequences of government regulation.
