Here's a compelling graphic , put out by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), that shows America's weight gain, state by state, from 1985 to 2007. Wow; clearly we have issues with food (and lack of exercise).
What are some simple ways to stem this trend? Common-sense, intuitive-eating wisdom still holds true; my favorite approach, reflected in DL's tagline, is to eat REAL FOOD instead of fake stuff -- it tastes better, has usable calories, and is better for you. That's why I love our recipes; they prove that real food, eaten in moderation, is not only healthy but DELICIOUS.
