If You Wait It Will Change
When something you crave is unhealthy for you, I am convinced if you wait long enough, "Modern Science" will come through and save the day. For example fast food has caught Hell for years as being unhealthy, causing obesity, and killing Americans. Then, low and behold.
The Cure for Obesity - Fast Food. Go figure.
Cliff Notes version - Fast Food is engineered so the fat, salt, and sugar is controlled. (Unfortunately, McDonalds French Fries do not fall in this category. But I digress.)
Look at the Italians, they live long happy lives on red wine, olive oil, and great food.
Now, I'm just waiting for someone to justify fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, sour cream chocolate pound cake, collards, and fried okra. And, no, Southern Living does not count as a source of scientific data here.
Oh, and Paula Deen, seriously? Don't hold your breath. Your Lady's Brunch Burger (a large beef patty, with a fried egg, bacon, and butter, served between two Krispy Kreme donuts) will never be granted "Healthy Status". Bless your heart.
