Many of us grew up with the ole’ school food pyramid in school.
We also grew up in a time that your teachers could spank you (Mrs. Henderson 1st grade).
More and more thanks to our fast food nation epidemic the food chart is a little more like this…
Bottom of the chart cereal and breads: I totally ate 3 pcs of bread on my Big Mac.
Veggies 3 to 5 servings: Taco bell tostada has lettuce and tomatoes. Score!
Fruits: A juice box!! I get my fruit and pretty pictures 🙂
Dairy and cheese: Let’s just pay .10 cents extra on the Big Mac meal and get the milkshake and the dump truck of fries. Genius!
Meat, Poultry and Fish: Long John Silvers. Can’t get fresher than this!! It has a pirate seal of approval and they never lie.
Sweets: I am trying to lose weight… going to pass. I’ll just have a diet coke instead!
I am not saying you can’t have a burger and fries every once in a while… you can let’s just use fresh ingredients!!
1 lb Organic hamburger meat
1 Fresh Tomato, sliced
1 Crisp head of butter lettuce
6 Sprigs fresh Rosemary
2 Baking potatoes
1/4 cup of Happy Hemp
Optional: Cheddar cheese
Preheat over to 425.
Chop the potatoes into wedges. Spread on a cookie sheet.
Drizzle olive oil over the top and the chopped fresh rosemary.
Every 15 min flip the wedges. Total cook time about 45 min or until crispy on the edges.
Place the meat in a large bowl. Mix in Happy Hemp and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Pat out into patties. Place in a skillet over medium heat.
Cook until desired doneness. I prefer medium about 3 min each side.
Place burger on the lettuce bun and add tomato slice on top.
