Food For Thought

As the new year approaches and millions resolve to "lose weight" or "eat right" they may want to consider Michael Pollan's advice: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants."

Here's his New York Times Magazine article, "Unhappy Meals: 30 Years of Nutritional Science Has Made Americans Sicker, Fatter and Less Well Nourished. A Plea for the Return of Plain Old Food."

It's a longer article but definitely worth the read! Pollan articulates simply what has become such a complex issue for consumers (the eaters and the spenders) and so lucrative for the "food" industry AND the U.S. "Healthcare" system - What is food? How existential!

Wishing peace and good health in 2009!

P.S. My resolutions:

More Veggies and Home Cooking
