“Angus” Trivia Question Reveal
Angus cattle traditionally have black skin, though there are also red angus and black-red angus. What makes an angus “better”? Nothing! The marbling and grade of beef is dependent upon it’s feed and weight – not the color of its skin. Therefore, all that angus burger marketing is really just a play on words to get you to buy the angus, though there is likely nothing superior in the angus (Busted, McD’s!). Is marbling better? Not in a dietitian’s eyes 😉
That was fun! I loved reading the answers to that trivia question! Pink skin – haha – that was an awesome response!
And this is a fun bit of organic produce information I ran across today. If you’re interested in organics, but not in wasting your money…check this list out [source]. Help prioritize what you purchase organic!

I am hoping to catch up with everyone’s wonderful blogs sooner rather than later! Things are nuts, but I sure miss staying up to date with y’all! Our dietitians are beginning the pre-op nutrition consult for lap banding patients and let me just say, lap banding is a hot ticket item right now! And that makes me one busy RD!!
Question: Do you know anyone who has had lap banding? Gastric by-pass? What is your take on weight-loss surgery? If you were an RD, would you recommend it to patients?
