Two cool writers who talk about food and health in a way I can stand!
Mark Bittman was just on NPR
Mark Bittman: Eating Right Can Save The Planet
I liked the interview, and since I am in some sort of posting frenzy (I think it has been brought on by Facebook, as I was “forced” to join over the weekend by my old high school friend Julie), I thought I would link to his book here. I guess I also ought to go READ it and also Michael Pollan’s book, In Defense of Food. I LOVE his becoming-famous “Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants.” and other common sense type “rules” about not eating things that your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. He spoke at Bates College and also on NPR’s Talk of the Nation.
While I’m at it, I want to encourage YOU to use GoodSearch to donate teeny amounts of money to charity when you use it as your search engine. I have mine set to benefit “Christian Associates in Huntington, WV”, which is a food & clothing bank from the Episcopal Church across the street from my own church, where we make lots of donations and send teenagers and others to help out.
