Food for Thought


Temptation abounds as your taste buds linger
be careful before you raise a finger
all good things are provided by the Lord
eat what’s permitted to stay on board
be careful of consuming too much fat
or you may suffer a heart attack
fruits and vegetables are the key
eat plenty to remain healthy
sugar and spice and everything nice
overindulgence has its price
berries are good for the brain
a lack may cause your mind to strain
whole grains and nuts each day
milk and cereal and be on your way
fish will help keep you lean
have twice a week with string beans
garlic and onions ward off disease
toss into your salad and set your mind at ease
yogurt keeps the digestive tract in line
eat daily and you’ll be fine
medicinal herbs maintain one’s health
caution of the risks before being stealth
eat healthy proportions and think twice
don’t be tempted by a junk food vice.
