My friend, Greg Ellifritz, is one of the few reasons I have a personal Facebook account. I present to you, with his permission, one of Greg’s recent FaceBook posts:
“At the hotel breakfast this morning and a woman walks up with three young kids (6-10 years old) in tow. She tells the children to sit down while she peruses the buffet choices for them.
She proceeds to pour a bowl of fruit loops cereal with skim milk for each kid. The oldest boy requests eggs. Mom talks with the buffet attendant and says “Do the eggs have any fat in them?” The woman looked confused. Mom rephrases the question “Are the eggs cooked with anything like butter or oil?”
The buffet attendant informed mom that the eggs were cooked in butter. Mom tells the boy he can’t have the eggs. Too much fat.
She then gets each kid a plain bagel and honey to use as a spread. Once she gets to the table, she tells the kids how happy she is to be able to find a low-fat breakfast for them.
Am I stuck in 1987? I just smiled at her revulsion as I shoved another sausage patty into my mouth.”
The above is a true story. Although we have come a long way in terms of nutrition information and education there is still a lot of ignorance that exists. Don’t be that person. Don’t let your friends and family members be that person. If you don’t see the problem in the above scenario please let us know.
