108. Teaching moderation and cooking skills is the key
We have a share in a CSA farm and every week we go pick a share of vegetables. This has caused a huge change in how we eat. We have to learn how to cook all these strange vegetables, (something I have been having alot of fun with.) and We now buy more expensive organic meat, but have smaller portions of meat in a meal. I made my first Borscht this week.... sort of a beet stew... Lots of veggies and enough for 5 people 2 meals each... one pound of meat.

Most kids and young adults cannot cook. Alot of adults can't cook either. This is a serious problem.

If we truly cared about education we would bring back cooking, nutrition and home finances in our schools. We have college educated kids who can't balance a checking account or cook anything more difficult then hamburger helper.
