Michael Pollan gives us something to think about

My friend Jackie recently sent me this video of author Michal Pollan discussing how to navigate the food isles at your local grocery store. His concept is simple: never purchase anything that you’ve seen advertised. It’s a bold statement but it works. I would take that statement even a step further and say: never purchase anything with a nutrition label. This may seem counterintuitive because of late we’ve all been taught to diligently study nutrition labels. But think about it. Here are some foods that don’t have nutrition labels: fruits, vegetables, fresh whole grains, bulk foods such as nuts and legumes, and even meat. These foods don’t need nutrition labels because they are in their natural state.

  1. Brilliant tip! I have always been told to stick to the outside edge of the grocery stores for this very reason. Thanks for the insight!
