Sustenance

I was reading an article this morning about how yogurt manufacturers brag about their low-fat or non-fat products while loading them up with sugar. At one point the reporter decided to make us all feel bad by telling us what he has for breakfast: a quarter-cup of plain yogurt (there are three servings that size in your typical little yogurt container), a tablespoon of peanut butter, some fresh fruit and a sprinkling of nuts.

We have a fifty-pound dog. If we fed him that for breakfast we would be tossed in the slammer for animal abuse. That's not enough breakfast for a pair of seven-striped ground squirrels.

The reporter said that mini-snack is plenty to hold him until lunch. When he probably orders the double enchilada plate, extra guacamole.
