    You have become children of the state there for you are dependent of your state that will never experience true freedom as long as you are dependent of the state just like children dont have true freedom
    Well actually our healthy school dinners program had nothing to do with the Gov it was spearheaded by a chef called Jamie Oliver and in the UK you can still pack your kids lunch for them and when they go to high school you can give them money to leave school and buy lunch for themselves. Why should the tax payer have to pay for other childrens bad eating habits/ bad parenting?

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Oh yes, Jamie Oliver, that was his name. He was an absolute idiot when he did that show over here.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

And she stuck with it. She looks great and feels better. Here are some surprising things I discovered about food:

    Tortillas are an excellent substitute for other kinds of bread.
    Avocados are awesome.
    Grilling vegetables changes them completely and you can use a pump sprayer for olive oil.
    I... love turkey burgers. With steak seasoning.
    Wheat Thins and Triscuits are better than fried chips.
    Hummus is actually really good. Frozen yogurt has come a looooong way.
    And perhaps more importantly:

    If you change some of the little things you can still drink beer and eat bacon at 44 years old without getting fat or pissing off your wife.
    I actually prefer turkey burgers, where I would have guessed I wouldn't care for them at all and frozen yogurt has come a long way.

    What is interesting is if a person is weened off fried foods, corn-sugar drinks, fried chips, greasy burgers etc those come to be increasingly repulsive if you then eat it.

    We were traveling a few weeks ago late at night, and lacking any other place to get food pulled into a Wendy's and got a couple burgers and fries. About 4 bites later both were in the trash by both of us. They might as well have been lard spread over white bread with a heavy layer of salt on it.

    My wife believes a main reason people are becoming so overweight is because their meals are so lacking in essential vitamins, minerals, amino acids and other nutrients a person's body needs. So in response the mind/body keeps desperately wanting a person to eat more, more, more - not for calories but desperately seeking those essential nutrients. Once a person's body's needs are met in those regards, the constant desire to eat will diminish. Yet before her I lived almost entirely on a junk food diet.

    At the home front, this also poised a real challenge for my wife who takes her kitchen VERY seriously! The expansion of our menu as a result expanded dramatically and for the better. There's nothing wrong with "meat, flour, sugar/fruitous and potatoes." But that is about the only thing many people eat. Ever.

    Even more proof that parents are lazy cows. If my son's school came up with such a rule the administrators and I would be having a Come to Jesus Moment. What self respecting parent would allow school administrators to tell them what they could feed their own kids?

    why should my tax money being used to promote some health nuts agenda.
    what is next no meat allowed at school lunch because the next administration is a vegetarian? Or pork is banned because you next administration is Muslim which i can easily see happening very soon in the UK. your children will be required to wear burkas to school, but you will be alright with that because your been programmed to allow the state to make those decisions for you

    where do you draw the line?
