This government document contains food advice -
Take with a pinch of salt
and maybe a grain of sugar
then make sure the lie is big enough
so you, the consumercan swallow it whole.
Oops - food pyramids - FYI never show me one of those things, they only upset me - but this picture in particular ticked me off on so many levels. (Added 25 Feb: There are few food pyramids that can be taken seriously and but these have actually been created for people - instead of interest groups. The African American Food pyramid and it can be found here and the Mediterranean pyramid here they are different because they have resisted the pull of processed foods that have been promoted as "healthy" by interest groups.)
So, yes, I was going to do a nice beachy poem - after all as I walked around the bays today there was a traffic cone perched jauntily upon a rock - maybe I thought, Neptune needs a party hat, but he was kind enough to place it upon the shore later in the day.
Here's a nice picture of the beach instead. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me so it is sans party cone. For more Tuesday poems visit the hub - here. My government and food lobby dis-approved suggestion is to search out "chocolate as a form of antidote. Personally I rather like the smooth "Ode to Chocolate" by Barbara Cooker.
