Yesterday it dawned on me, that with the direction my life (and hence this site) has taken, this site should be called Peasandfitness.com – it actually came to me after Derek forwarded me an email he got from his corporate headquarters. I am posting it, as it makes me very happy that a company chooses to share health oriented messages like this:
EAT YOUR PEAS
Who didn’t hear this (or something like it) when you were growing up? Back then, someone was always telling you what to do to keep you safe, keep you healthy. Now, you need to tell yourself. Take control. Live smarter. Be healthy.
63% of Americans are overweight. Everyone knows that they should eat more greens and fewer fries. What’s really scary? Childhood obesity in the United States has more than tripled in the past 20 years. In fact, obesity is actually responsible for 300,000 deaths every year in this country. So more peas and less pasta can really make a difference in helping you live smarter and be healthy, so word to the wise:
I guess all they are trying to say is…”give peas a chance.” I couldn’t have said it better, myself!
