You would think there would have been some sort of comment from the gal who got all the grant money.

This is the only thing Albert Lea has going for it. Doesn't seem to be any new companies coming to town. So why not embrace what you can get. Can't have your cake and eat it too. Well unless you are the people who doesn't want the town to prosper and grow??

The "Blue Zone" deal is a total crock. How are restaurants like McDonald's allowed to even list themselves as being "Blue Zone Friendly" just because they have SOME healthful offerings, like salad, when most of their food is total crap?

Didn't the Blue Zone Group have a spokesperson from Trails who would promote their healthful offerings there, but also about their cholesterol-laden Paul Bunyan-sized meals (and who also promoted their electronic cigarettes)? Isn't that somewhat counterproductive when it comes to promoting health?

The label means nothing. Absolutely nothing. MOST restaurants have some healthful offerings, and did long before Blue Zones came around. Blue Zone is just a label that gets slapped on common sense - eating right and exercising.

The Blue Zone wouldn't need a revitalization if they hadn't put an end date on it in the first place.  This is Albert Lea and when we ended the original period of the project, most of the participants said "there we're done with that" and moved on with their lives.  And as atlantic said..."You can't have your carrot cake and eat it too".   Plus, it's not the restaurants that are the problem with what we eat....it's what WE choose.  I choose to agree with This Is My Real Name....it's a crock, but, without the crock what would the "in folks" in town have to do with their time.

I agree what we eat is up to us as well, the unc. I'm not blaming the restaurants for their offering, nor do I think they should not have less healthful items - but I do think the defnition of "Blue Zone" is a little too loose, and can't help but wonder if that was done as a "feel good" all-inclusive measure so nobody is left out.
