Yes, moderation ...  a good reminder!

Like many things, sugar, fat and salt are good, even essential, for good
health. But in moderation! 

The old "more is better" fable is serious problem.

I know sugar, fat, & salt are considered to make
food taste "good."

But we have access to so many other herbs and
spices nowadays with which to accent flavor; plus
sometimes the natural flavor of something (for
instance, some vegetables) is the best!

These are very legitimate issues, Martha.   It's like being in a country
full 
of brain-washed people, or more accurately, addicted people.   When most 
people say some food is really good, I know they mean really bad.   And when
I 
tell them that something tastes good, I know most of them won't be able to
taste 
it at all until they wean themselves off sugar.

Sad, but true.
