    Default BREAKING: Pizza is now a vegetable

    This is very good for me, because although I do not eat many vegetables, I do frequently eat pizza

    This new declaration will greatly improve my nutritional status because pizza is now a vegetable

    That didn't say that PIZZA was a vegetable, just the tomato sauce. I thought tomato was a fruit?

    I was going to rant/vent some more, until I realized:

    Allow USDA to count two tablespoons of tomato paste as a vegetable, as it does now. The department had attempted to require that only a half-cup of tomato paste could be considered a vegetable — too much to put on a pizza.
    Seems like this is all about splitting hairs, and the sensational headlines "Pizza is a vegetable!@##@!#@!!@#" are just senseless hype.

    Then again the lack of 1/2c of tomato sauce on the pizza isn't my gripe with it, it's with those so-called "Healthy Whole Grains". . .

    said Kraig Naasz, president of the American Frozen Food Institute.
    'Nuff said. Agenda anyone?

    Of all the crazy stunts. What an embarrassing example of Republicans supporting lobbyists. Yes, stuff the children full of high sodium, high fat, low nutritional return foods to prep them for adult obesity, hence vacuum more garbage.

    It's the inevitable result of centralizing decision making power.

    The idea that people in DC know better about what the kids should eat at the school across the street from me than administrators and parents in this community is crazy.

    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    In my experience, parents and school administrators are among the most intelligent and adept decision-makers.

    I bet this won't help the bullying statistics.
    Edit: Actually my logic could be wrong, since if everybody gets obese there is no point in bullying obeses.

    Pizza a vegetable? There really is a god!

    In all seriousness I'm actually ok with pizza being considered a veggie as well as less limits being put on school lunches; the governent does not need to be telling people what they can or can't eat.
