After reading Michael Pollan's most recent books, and seeing the results of eating like shit for the past 2 years, I am essentially done with food products (ie, food that has been chemically modified- 90% of the items in most of today's grocery stores). It's now crystal clear to me that even in moderation, that stuff is BAD for you. Our clamoring to have cheap food, along with a couple of really abhorent laws passed years ago, has completely changed the food culture in the country. For many reasons, I'm going to gradually change what I eat. I'm going to start making my local farmer's market my 1st food stop for the week. I'm going to strive to have 90% of my food 'whole'. I'm not going to count calories, because that says I'm dieting, which I'm not. I've simply become appalled at what the food industry now looks like. I'm not becoming a vegetarian, and I'm not turning into an organic freak. I'm just going to practically cut processed/altered foods out, and see how it goes. I've had a strong interest recently in cooking, so this is a perfect time to start going crazy with veggies/herbs/fruits I've never tried. Does anyone else currently do something similar?
