Live healthy-- but keep it quiet

Live healthy-- but keep it quiet

Add this to the twin pitfalls of
religion and politics that lead the list of topics one should not bring
up in polite conversation: healthy living.

Good, clean, healthy living gets a
bad rap these days. Oh, not among the sort of people whose idea of fun
is drinking raw milk directly from old Millie's wizened udder during a
back-to-nature "hay-cation."

I mean among regular people. You
know, the sort who generally don't feel they have the time, energy,
money or need to work out or to make meals that require a lot of fresh
food.
