A two-year old display of fast food and none of it has spoiled or molded. That's a bit jarring.

A two-year old display of fast food and none of it has spoiled or molded. That's a bit jarring.

Our fast "food" display is now 2 years old. The word food is questionable, since the bread-like and meat-like substances have not molded or spoiled in any way. Bugs won't even bother with it. Please think twice about giving this to your kids. You have a choice, but they don't. We truly are what we eat.

Water's so important to the body. Part of living well is drinking more water. If you'd like it sweetened, drop in a slice of your favorite fruit. Slice strawberries and watermelon into a glass of water, let it chill in the fridge and drink up!
