Five Star

I liked it so well I bought 5 more and gave them away. Should have bought 10. Book provides scientific evidence to displace folklore on what the various treatments do to food. Bottom line: as much as you can, eat food grown on farms, avoid food grown in factories.


You'll never drink homogenized milk again

I knew before reading Real Food that I agreed with Nina Planck's premise--that real food is good for you and industrialized food is bad for you--but now I hardly even want to walk into a supermarket. Planck describes in sometimes horrific detail the processes through which food goes to become the stuff most Americans eat, and the things that farmers and food manufacturers can get away with, even in this supposedly modern age, are simply appalling. But the good news is that butter and red meat are not bad for you! In fact, if you buy fresh grass-fed beef and dairy products from healthy grass-fed cows, it's all good for you, just as it has been since the world began. Planck advises getting as close to the source as possible for all your food--finding local farms, shopping at farmers' markets, growing your own produce--and forget about fat-free, cholesterol-free, sodium-free, sugar-free, and all the rest. No more diets--just eat real food.
