Drop the drugs, and keep the grapefruit

The addition of vegetables helped increase the positive response in multiple ways, making the meal seem more “complete,” “loving,” “tasty,” and prepared with more effort or thought. Respondents also rated the vegetable-preparing mothers as more loving and thoughtful and less boring or selfish.

I see two sides to this research.

Sure, we can focus on the fact that moms who serve vegetables are noble. But why not guilt the many mothers who aren’t living up to the standard?

How about a tagline like “Supermoms serve veggies, lazy moms don’t”?

Let's start by having tee shirts made with that comment on them! And in answer to your question, I make fresh grapefruit juice every weekend. Of course, some people can't "drop" their medications, but it's still a good rallying cry.

Sounds like a great idea Barb! I think they would move!

I also support, "drop medications and eat healthier". It would improve a persons outlook on life, their attitude, and their health. North americans are lazy and want an easy fix. This is just another excuse, sick of hearing it.
