Letter: Pick out healthy food

With COVID-19 gradually releasing its fatal grip, this Memorial Working day we can concentrate as soon as once again on the risk of our outdoor grill.

Of course, that. People who grill hamburgers and sizzling canines confront a terrible selection. The U.S. Meat and Poultry Hotline advises grilling at superior temperature to stay away from food items poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella microorganisms. But the National Most cancers Institute warns that significant-temperature grilling of processed meats generates most cancers-creating compounds.

Thankfully, we no longer need to choose concerning meals poisoning and cancer.

A bunch of enterprising U.S. foodstuff processors have met this problem head-on by producing a loaded assortment of convenient, healthful, tasty plant-primarily based veggie burgers, veggie dogs and soy nuggets.


These products and solutions don’t harbor terrible bugs or most cancers-resulting in compounds. They have no cholesterol, saturated fats, prescription drugs, hormones and pesticides like their animal-based solutions. And, they are ready for us in the frozen food items area of our favorite grocery store, together with nut-centered cheeses, milks and ice creams.

This Memorial Working day, in the shadow of COVID-19, let us stay secure in much more means than a single!
