You Serve What You Eat

We often hear people say, “You are what you eat.” Now, William Parker of Detroit decides to serve what he eats.

From 1991 to 2005, Parker’s restaurant sold fried and fat-laden specialties. His health went downhill nearly the entire time he ran his restaurant. Since 2005, after being discharged from hospital, Parker started to learn nutrition and health, and transform his diet. He decided to reopen his restaurant in July, but this time he would serve the same kind of healthy food he was consuming.

“I couldn’t in good conscience serve something to people that I know is no good for them,” Parker says.

Good luck, William...


  1. Interesting. It takes a lot of guts to change so drastically, his business, I mean. I suppose conscience too can move the earth. Thanks for sharing that.

  2. happy,
    Changing the business is easy. Changing customers' eating habit is tough. He probably did not expect to make big money, but he wanted to spread the message...
