Happy Fat Holiday!

Not to be a party popper since I love the holidays, and I ate my Corned Beef & Cabbage meal a few days ago (and hope to have another).  But, I pulled up a quick recipe to see the calories (700), the calories from fat (470), fat grams, etc. in such a meal (assuming you only eat one serving), and it got me wondering.

If we look at all our holidays – New Years, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Fat Tuesday, Fourth of July, Easter, Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc., is there any wonder we have food issues?  A lot of our favorite memories are tied to holidays which are tied to food.  You take those experiences (which typically include some snacks and deserts), and you can eat a few days calories in one day.

Not that it’s bad if you burn off more calories than you take in, but it certainly embeds this food problem right into our culture.
