Disease Proof

Slumping Economy, Slumping Diets

Okay, no matter what side of the political fence you fall on, we can all agree, the economy is in toilet. For most of us, money is tight. And according to experts, this spells trouble for the already horrible American diet. People might become more inclined to ditch healthier foods, like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and fish, for cheaper, horrible foods, such as fast food and cereal; Reuters explains.

And previous reports have claimed up-ticks in candy sales are directly related to recession. But, you can survive hard times healthfully, if you keep your eyes open! You can find plenty of great, reduced priced produce at most supermarkets and farmers markets are a haven of affordable fruits and veggies.

Hey Gerry! I once had a sweet potatoe start to sprout and it became this beautiful little green plant that I propped up on my counter for a month or so. Then it started to get gross and I tossed it. Have you ever noticed that the tomatoes that you buy at Costco never go bad? I had one of them and one from my garden sitting on my counter. The one from my garden got brown spots and moldy in the normal amount of time. The one I got from Costco started to sprout and a little green leaf eventually poked through the skin. Needless to say, I don't buy those tomatoes anymore. They must be the "forever tomato!"
