Life's still too short to eat bad food

"The devil has put a penalty on all things we enjoy in life. Either we suffer in health or we suffer in soul or we get fat." - Albert Einstein


So, the USDA is going to start requiring Nutrition Labels on meats and poultry.  Woo-Hoo!

First it's useless.  If you are the type who examines the nutrition labels on prepared foods you are most likely intelligent enough to have pretty good idea of what you are getting. Second, this is one area where flavor is an issue.  Fat equals flavor.  You are welcome to buy 90/10 ground beef, but you'd be better off buying a hockey puck.  It has more flavor and less chance of food-borne illness.

They might as well as put a red stripe across the package of 90/10 ground beef. Not enough fat to make a good burger.

I watch what I eat, but a burger is splurge food. When I eat one it needs flavor, and fat = flavor. Don't eliminate the fat, just eat it less often.
