27. "healthy lifestyle advice" is something we need to hear a lot more of right now!
Thu Mar 26, 2020, 02:34 PM
Mar 2020

Eating a healthy diet, including immunity-boosting foods, herbs and spices. Exercise and lung-strengthening activities.

We USED to have a first lady who emphasized the importance of food as medicine. She was ridiculed by the right, and much worse. Now we have a useless boob with an inane "cause" that seems intended to rub her husband's cyber-bullying in our faces.

It's up to us to keep ourselves as healthy as possible, and that means eating as much healthy food as we can. (I realize not everyone can do this, but it bears repeating anyway. This is the worst time to be consuming junk food, especially those most at risk.)

If anyone's wondering "what can I do to help?" consider it a patriotic duty to eat as healthy possible.
