A MESSAGE FROM THE FARMERS OF IOWA

YOU EAT WHAT YOU WANT. IOWA'S READY TO HELP WHEN YOU ARE.

This post is sponsored content announcement from the Iowa Farmers' Association.

There's been a lot of talk about carbohydrates. Negative talk, particularly about corn. Well, we here in Iowa happen to disagree with a lot of that. Corn and wheat have been grown by family farmers here for decades. Eaten as part of a balanced diet, they provide crucial minerals and nutrients to the body. They're part of a balanced diet here.

We can't tell you how to eat. That's wouldn't be what an Iowan would do. Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff, born and raised in Denison, Iowa, wouldn't tell you what to do at the dinner table, either. That's because he's Iowan, and also because he's a little busy right now.

But if he weren't busy, he'd just tell you to make up your own mind about what'll help your body grow. That's what we do here in Iowa. You know. When we're not busy throwing around the bodyweight of large seals around in the weight room after our hearty, carbohydrate-rich breakfasts.*

*or sometimes getting rhabdo, because that happened once and we're legally obligated to mention it
