Global Food Guide

(Hip-Hop song)
An apple a day keeps greed away

A banana a day keeps stress away

An orange a day keeps greedy bugs away
A tomato a day keeps greed away

A carrot a day keeps stress away

A garlic bud a day keeps greedy bugs away
A sushi a day keeps greed away

A potato a day keeps stress away

A yam a day keeps greedy bugs away
Eat cheese and keep greed away

Eat ice cream and keep stress away

Eat yogurt and keep greedy bugs away
Be a friend, be a greed-buster

Be a swimmer, be a stress-buster

Be a life-guard,

And enjoy your age, gender, and abilities
