This is a great article from today’s NYT about eating habits of Americans:Â Â http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/17/dining/17diet.html
If you’ve read Michael Pollan’s “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” you’ll be familiar with the argument at stake here: eat more, not less, as long as you make sure that what you’re eating isn’t about to kill you. No fast foods, no overly processed foods — hell, cook at home! Food is your friend — not the enemy!
The article mentions Slow Food, an organization that I happen to love (I only wish I were in town for the Slow Food Fest they had over Labor Day weekend in SF).Â It also mentions how folks are starting to realize that when you cook at home, you have a greater understanding of that which you’re putting in your body – and which becomes your body – and how important it is to eat foods in a positive frame of mind.
With that positivity and happiness in mind…. I’m going to step out to a bite of sushi at my favorite place. What a happy food thought!
