I stand with cheeseburgers. It’s the most political statement I’ll make in this column all year. Food choices abound in America. A leading Democratic presidential candidate, California Sen. Kamala Harris already made headlines for her comments on how she loves cheeseburgers from “time to time” but if elected she would drastically change the food pyramid and dietary guidelines, with a goal of reducing red meat consumption.
As a cheeseburger eater, this sounds terrible. As a food choices advocate, I try to listen first before I react. But then, I get frustrated and I eat a cheeseburger.
