In Defense of Food, Part II

Cont'd from yesterday...

Mostly Plants:
What to eat

"Eat mostly plants, especially leaves."

"You are what what you eat eats too."

"If you have the space, buy a freezer." (i.e. buy in bulk, freezing doesn't strip nutrients as much as canning does)

"Eat like an omnivore."

"Eat well-grown food from healthy soils."

"Eat wild foods when you can."

"Be the kind of person who takes supplements." (Pollan actually dogs on supplements themselves, but sees how people who take supplements are generally healthier people, but it's probably just not the vitamins that are doing the work)

"Eat more like the French. Or the Italian. Or the Japanese. Or the Indians. Or the Greeks."

"Regard non-traditional foods with skepticism."

"Don't look for the magic bullet in the traditional diet."
