So beans and rice is bad?
IMHO, I think the whole obesity and diabetes epidemic stems from a sedentary lifestyle. Kids these days are not as outdoor active as they used to be. Blame consoles, PCs, phones...whatever. No actually, blame the parents. Anyways, this coupled with the fact working families are having to put in longer hours just to make ends meet. I suspect this is pushing people to eat on the fly rather than to take the time properly prepare and cook healthy foods. And if parents are no longer eating healthy or preparing for their kids, how can the next generation expect to learn healthy eating habits?
