March 7: National Roast of Pork Day and National Cereal Day

National Roast of Pork Day

Also called Crown Roast of Pork Day, today's National Roast of Pork Day.  I don't eat pork a whole lot (just the occasional bacon) so I really wasn't sure what this about.  StartCooking has an excellent resource for anyone who's not sure what to do with that pork roast from the store.  Pork roast is apparently such a popular dish that FoodNetwork has a collection of recipes for pork roast alone.  The National Pork Board provides information as to what pork loin roast is, along with nutritional information and recipes. 

National Cereal Day

Cereal's pretty ubiquitous these days.  You see it in any place that sells or provides food- snack shops, grocery stores, continental breakfasts in hotels, etc.  So, I'm figuring that everyone is familiar with what cereal is, even if you don't eat it regularly.  If you do buy cereal, just remember that even the healthiest seeming cereals have added sugars.  Not sure what added sugars are?  The USDA has a handy list of names for added sugars.  And try to choose cereals that list a whole grain as the first ingredient.
