One of the followers on this blog brought the New York Times article, ‘Preaching a healthy diet in the deep-fried delta’, to my attention. You can find the article at http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/22/us/22delta.html?pagewanted=all.
Why in the face of so many messages about diabetes, obesity, and heart disease would anyone continue to eat fried foods? Because it tastes good. And because we socialize and have fellowship with family and friends over meals that feature these foods. But Reverend Michael Minor and other church leaders have been working to change all that.
‘No fry zones’ and fruit platters, fresh water and no soda… these are the new ‘normal’.
