In Defense of Food

I know this is totally ”so 2008” right now… but I just started reading the book ” In Defense of Food” by Michael Pollan. So far, it’s AWESOME. First line: ” Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” I mean, isn’t it obvious?! Why the eff haven’t we been doing this? 

Because the food industry, the government etc… (not to get all Michael Moore on you right now) have been just slinging us bullshit for years. Why? Because our confusion is worth a ton of money. 

I love that slowly people are going back to how we are supposed to eat. The Whole Foods, farmers markets, organic everything, and just a going back to the love of and preparation of real natural foods. I myself stick to the outside perimeter of a grocery store, at all times. I have no need to go down those middle packaged aisles. No one does. I have really been enjoying eating well, eating lots of fruits and veggies, and the ceremony of preparing great healthy meals. 

I feel my body shedding weight quite quickly now, and it feels amazing. Not just the weight loss, but eating all these great foods just makes my body feel good. I can’t wait to see what long term changes come from this!
