Chips, ""low fat""sour cream, lean beef, canned this and that. Delicious- yes, healthy, certainly not. Why not fresh beans without all the sodium and waste? Anyone ever read the packaging on ""Low Fat"" pasteurised sour cream? How about emphasising organic produce and grass fed rather than GMO grain fed beef? I continue to be astounded to what apparently educated, well intentioned people regard as healthy. With these diets it is no wonder dental, belly fat, cardiovascular and cancer issues are number 1 ""with a bullet"".
