Contrasting Nourishing Traditions and the Standard American Diet
Nourishing traditions come from times of old;
Their flavors, textures and scents delight our soul.
Soaked whole grains fill us up with needed energy,
And organic produce creates the ultimate synergy.
Fresh fruits and veggies that are well and prized,
Deliver the nutrients to keep us energized.
They offer antioxidants to help fight disease,
Which helps our bodies feel quite at ease.
But alas, today we’re turning our back;
On the nourishing traditions that we lack.
The standard American diet has taken its place –
Filled with processed foods that take away grace.
It’s no wonder we’re gaining pounds each day;
For burgers or fries are now how we play.
So say a prayer that we’ll eventually see:
The greatness of nourishing traditions for US will be!
Pin This…just because.
