Awareness Spotlight shines on…
WORLD POLIO DAY hopes to eradicate this crippling disease off the face of the Earth. While it is mostly gone, there are still a few countries that are dealing with it. Until it is gone for good, polio vaccines are still strongly recommended.
NATIONAL FOOD DAY wants you to eat healthier. Less of the sugar and processed foods and more of the whole grains, veggies and fruit is what’s recommended. It also looks to help the environment by urging us to eat sustainably raised protein instead of factory farm meats. Not gonna lie here, not sure what that means but if it comes off of a cow, chicken, or pig, I’m gonna eat it.
Education and Information
UNITED NATIONS DAY marks the founding of this global entity. In 1945, 51 countries came together to work towards making the world a better place for all. Today, there are 193 member states and two observing states that make up this worldly conclave. To take care of the world is a formidable task and as long as they don’t give up, I don’t think they have failed.
On Today’s Menu…
NATIONAL BOLOGNA DAY may not be the healthiest of foods, but it will make a fine sandwich and taste pretty good as well. There are so many ways to use this deli meat but the ultimate for me is a bologna, grape jelly and pretzel stick sandwich. It’s weird, but it works.
JAMAICAN JERK DAY brings a little taste of the Caribbean back home. A combination of pepper, allspice, ginger, salt, cinnamon, clove and garlic give the grilled meat it’s unique flavor. If you don’t celebrate this one today, you will be missing out.
