Chicken fried bacon?????!!! ROFLMBO!!!! I had a heart attack just reading about it. It sounds gross to me.

Louisiana might be on some bad lists but the people I've met from there are fantastic. Some of the friendliest people I've ever met. My dad has some Cajun friends who live there and when he goes on vacation in their area they put out the welcome mat. These people know how to entertain a guest. Last year they took him fishing in the bayous and the gulf and he had the time of his life. They invited all their friends for a big welcome and the food was fantastic.

I'm originally from Louisiana before moving to Texas. We always used to say, "Thank God for Mississippi," because it kept us from being the worst state on a lot of those "bad" lists. Of course, La. and Texas are both states noted for frying everything and dousing it with gravy. In fact, I was watching a Texas travel show just this morning that featured an MI on a plate... are you ready.... Chicken-Fried Bacon. With cream gravy. ugh...I'm having an angina attack just typing that. Where's my nitro...??

I don't want to insult people in other parts of the country but in my opinion some of the best cooks are from the south and Mississippi is no exception. (By the way, I'm not from the south so don't jump me. lol) Southern cooks like Natalie Dupree, Paula Deen, Justin Wilson (deceased), Paul Prudhomme, and Katie Joel fix that down home country comfort food that the majority of us seem to love, even if it isn't all that good for you. I believe in eating healthy but when you compare something like a tofu egg white omelet with some maple sugar bacon, sage sausage, buttery grits, buttermilk biscuits, and red eye gravy.....well.....I think you get the point. I'm not having to fight off the urge to overindulge in the tofu omelet. LOL. I would hate to live in Mississippi and be constantly tempted by all those pralines. LOL. The bottom line is that many Americans actually want to eat healthier but they want it to be delicious as well as nutritious. We need to demand that food producers and restaurants offer healthier, tastier products with less salt, sugar, saturated fat, cholesterol, transfat and high fructose corn syrup, not the cardboard tasting offerings they have presented to us thus far. If we stop buying and consuming these unhealthy products maybe they will come up with some acceptable alternatives.

I'm a living testimony to that statement, I was raised in Mississippi! It's been on the "most obese" list for at least a decade...I'm in Arkansas now, and it's not doing much better, I see obesity everywhere and in the very young, obese families pigging out at buffets...so sad the way we live now.

wow........that is interesting..........thanks


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world
