Church feeding you??

Tuesday, September 22, 2009

I was looking at all of the foods that were being served at an event my church was having, when I noticed there was not one healthy item. Even the salads were bogged down with mayo and other condiments. When your church has an eating event does it offer healthy choices?

    It's always easy to get a fruit or veggie platter at the Jewel's or Costco, so our church potlucks always have something healthy. Thank heaven for busy people!

    In my experience, the foods served are largely based on the people making them! If I want something healthy at a potluck, I usually have to bring it myself. I always call ahead to see if anyone has volunteered to bring a fruit or vegetable platter, and that's what I bring.

    Our last church started a walking program in the spring- and I noticed that, once parishoners became more health conscience, the foods changed. They stopped serving donuts at Sunday School and started serving muffins instead, for example.

    Well, the dish you bring is healthy, right? Then you can navigate the gospel bird (fried chicken) and the other fattening things. You seem to know what to look out for.

    Nope, and I don't go much anymore because 7th day adventists eat alot of soya products which give me GERD. Also the 16 years I have known my church group vegetarians and vegans are no healthier than meat eaters. The ratio of life style illness is equal...

    No it does not! And this has been an ongoing problem for me. When we have potluck, I generally bring a healthy dish. When it's not potluck, I generally stick with coffee and eat when I get home.
