What’s for Dinner?

Filed under: Posts — clgood @ 10:31

Harriet Hall has a nice post up about Michael Pollan’s book. He’s the “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” guy.

We have been bamboozled by “nutritionism” – the idea that food can be reduced to a mixture of identifiable nutrients, that we can’t be trusted to eat right without scientific help, that we should choose foods to make us healthy rather than to provide pleasure (which fits right into the time-honored guilt trip that anything that feels good must be bad).

I really like her version of the rule:

Eat a variety of foods. Not too much. Mostly plants.
