There's a tremendous amount of confusion about what to eat. Should I eat meat? Should I be a vegetarian? Am I getting enough Omega 3? How 'bout vitamin D? Should I eat organic food? What about pesticides? What about genetically modified foods. Seafood - should I purchase farm raised or wild Salmon? What about the mercury? Oh yeah, is milk good for me or not?
The list of "things" to know or worry about is mind-boggling.
Here's the scoop: In his book, Pollan quotes Gyorgy Scrinis, the person who coined the term nutritionism. Scrinis states: "Whole foods and industrial foods (processed) are the only two food groups I'd consider including in any food pyramid."
That's pretty simple and should be the guiding light ... eat whole food not processed food.
