Michael Pollan has a long but excellent article in the latest New York Times Magazine about how we should be thinking about eating. The Kottke blog sums it up nicely: "...he blames the rise of nutritionism (the emphasis on the nutrients contained in food rather than the food itself) for our increasingly poor diets." Great insight into the whole food industry, and how we have lost our way in understanding what we need to eat to nourish ourselves properly. My favourite quote is the start of the article, which is also his conclusion: "Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants." Read the whole article here.
