Many of us will stay up to watch the polling stations report in, and we’ll snack.
So, what healthy patriotic foods can we eat for good luck?
The Granddaddy of America, George Washington loved cherries. He really did. Cherries and nuts. The dude ate a pretty healthy diet, including fresh fish. Heck, he ran his own farm, whereupon everything was organic (before organic was organic cuz just everything was organic).
Mount Vernon grew a bountiful supply of hemp (sorry America) and orchards of lovely fruit. The joint was completely self sufficient. No cellophane.
I suggest we embrace this nonpartisan president’s eating habits. The man despised political parties and hoped they’d never exist—just look at his Cabinet.
In the spirit of the 2016 election, here is a link to one of my favorite vegan cherry desserts. It’s a combo of Washington’s sweet tooth and Akron’s own oatmeal.
