    Take a look at "the great mid-American cookbook of its day" (Buckeye Cookery, And Practical Housekeeping: Compiled From Original Recipes. Minneapolis, Minn.: Buckeye Pub. Co., 1877). The section on "Seasonal Bills of Fare" contains pages and pages of daily menu suggestions - go on and page through; you won't believe how much food the typical American consumed 150 years ago.

    As a people, we've become sedentary to the point of endangering our national physical health.
    I don't think we agree on much, but this we agree on. But... it's people's choices.
    Horseback riding is out, gardening is out, hard labor is pretty much out. Now it's mechanized transport, tough jobs are mechanized, and computers replace outdoor activity.

    If you think they ate a lot back then, you should have seen the tests given for 8th graders 100-years ago. I had one such test (can't find it unfortunately) and it illustrates how sad our schools have become.

    Not to mention, the food wasn't genetically, or hormonally enhanced.

    Would you like that red herring pan-seared or hand-battered and fried?
