Meat Sweats

In case you don't keep up with all of the important, Brazil related items in the news I wanted to help you with that.

First off, Huntsville is getting a Brazilian steak house. Also called "The Home of the Meat Sweats". Unofficial title.

Next, and more importantly, Brazil came out with some really interesting dietary guidelines. They are trying to take all of the confusion out of how to eat properly as a nation.

Here are their 10 guidelines:

1. Prepare meals using fresh and staple foods.

2. Use oils, fats, sugar and salt in moderation.

3. Limit consumption of ready-to-eat food and drink products.

4. Eat at regular mealtimes and pay attention to your food instead of multitasking. Find a comfortable place to eat. Avoid all-you-can-eat buffets and noisy, stressful environments.

5. Eat with others whenever possible.

6. Buy food in shops and markets that offer a variety of fresh foods. Avoid those that sell mainly ready-to-eat products.

7. Develop, practice, share and enjoy your skills in food preparation and cooking.

8. Decide as a family to share cooking responsibilities and dedicate enough time for healthy meals.

9. When you eat out, choose restaurants that serve freshly made dishes. Avoid fast-food chains.

10. Be critical of food-industry advertising.

I think they are pretty awesome guidelines and would be much more effective than what we currently use in America.
