A great read this month is Michael Pollan’s, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto!
This book will open your eyes to 20th century food science and give you a commonsense shopping and eating guide!
In all this, Pollan insists that you have to save yourself. And he makes a good case why. Our government, he says, is so overwhelmed by the lobbying and marketing power of our processed food industry that the American diet is now 50% sugar in one form or another — calories that provide “virtually nothing but energy.”
A great tip to shop by is: In a supermarket, don’t shop in the center aisles. Avoid anything that can’t rot, anything with an ingredient you can’t pronounce.
