    Minorities have challenges for eating healthy food because of education and stigmas.....

    Very good article.

    It also touches on a point we see here in Arizona - dieticians are overwhelmingly white females. Makes it harder to relate to others.

    Article seems racist against dieticians. Too many female whites for them to be trusted.

    This is as over the top an effort to be offended that I've seen. What are we saying? That eating healthy seems like a 'white' pursuit, so we minorities can't do it?
    Tanisha's diet was saturated with McDonalds and Taco Bell. When she found out she was unhealthy and looked into eating better, the diet seemed so white it felt like she was being discriminated against? Come on. White people and healthy people are not the same group, and neither of them makes a habit of candied crusted almond salads, pressed kale extractions or hydrogen infused water, even if Goop says so.

    Eat fresh fruits and vegetables, and clean meats. Quick, easy, cheap, and healthy.

    It was a bit over the top yes but there is some truth to it. I have a friend who is a dietitian, her mom is Indian, her dad is white. She looks white with a mix of something. She told me before that while studying nutrition in college she would often be at odds with what they were being taught because she knew her indian mom was making meals that were more nutritiious and had less calories but the people teaching her were telling her Indian food was bad for her.

    Anecdotal of course

    I thought it was going to be about moon pies, boiled peanuts and RC cola.

    The first time I got drunk in high school was on Blue Tarantula Tequila mixed with RC Cola. Surprisingly, in my adult years I've never seen that on a cocktail menu.
