GMA this morning - Processed Meats NO!

Much to my pleasure, Good Morning America provided more documentation on the ills of eating processed meats: ham, turkey, salami, baloney, and roast beef. They said that it has been proven that eating more than 1 ounce a week for women and children, and 3 ounces for men can cause heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, and some cancers. They are especially concerned about children taking it for school lunches. Unfortunately for some they suggested that the best lunch for children is peanut butter and jelly on whole grain bread. That would leave the many children with peanut allergies with a BIG problem. I also understand that many school cafeterias are nut free! Some alternatives to the school lunch dilemma are: yogurt with fresh fruit, tomato, cucumber chicken on whole grain bread, tofu with salad, hard boiled eggs with fruit and hummus, cottage cheese and chopped vegetables. If your looking for more help with school or work lunches visit my website www.chefgloriab.com or call for a consultation. We can help.
