We've been "Sliced"

This pillow poses a very worthwhile question. One I would love to answer. Chocolate is a such a powerhouse. Strong enough to hold its own as a stand alone food group!

This pizza slice poses a question that was all over the news yesterday.

Seriously...this is being taken seriously? Pizza is a vegetable? Goodness. Leaves me almost speechless. Kind of reminds me when I worked with a family convinced mac and cheese was a veggie as well because it was listed as a "side" on restaurant menus. *Sigh*

The answer doesn't require a degree in nutrition. Apparently, just ask a lobbyist.

I just cannot believe how the bodies with the most future are the pawns in all this. Our little ones. Sickening. No wonder the stats on obesity and diabetes are so predictable. Our kids being mainlined right into chronic disease.  Any chance at optimal health sliced away...for what? A subsidy??? For more on this read playing-potato-pizza-politics

Well, I am shaken up. Now, I need to call my congressman. Done. Next, I need a little TLC. Done. These cornmeal waffles sound de-lish and no...don't even go there with the "Are these a vegetable?" thing.

Not a Vegetable Cornmeal Waffles (adapted from Stuart)

1 cup unbleached flour (I mix in some whole wheat as well)
1 cup stoneground cornmeal
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 eggs (organic preferred)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter (organic preferred), melted
2 cups buttermilk

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Mix the melted butter into the eggs, and then stir into the buttermilk.

Combine wet and dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix. Cook according to waffle maker instructions.

Serve with a small pat of unsalted butter and real maple syrup or with a syrup made from mashed berries.
