“I just finished reading “In Defense of Food” and it was amazing. Truly eye opening. He starts off the book with “Eat food. Not too much. Most plants.” That is his conclusion and he builds up to it the entire book. He talks about how eating habits have changed since the industrialization of the food supply. What was really interesting was the politics behind the FDA. REALLY interesting. He then goes through how to get better, more nutritious foods. Finally he ends with basic rules for shopping for foods. I think you guys would all love it!” – Original Post on Spark People “Food Showdown”
And that is pretty much all I remember from this book. Lots of shocking government food policies but a lot of things to help you learn (and want) to eat all natural. But since reading this book, my eating-life turned upside down. I almost never eat processed foods anymore. I rarely eat at chain restaurants because I do not trust their foods. I eat as “clean” and natural as possible and it really did start with reading this book. All that being said, I think everyone should read this because it really will change the way you look at your food!
Conveniently while I was at the book store this weekend, I found a copy of it on clearance so I’m giving it away! Just leave a comment on this blog telling me either why you choose to eat all natural or why you find it hard to to avoid processed foods. Can’t wait to see your answers! I will randomly choose a winner on Friday!
