Diet, meet Butter

By Rachel Blum Spencer for FRONT PORCH REPUBLIC

This journalist describes her week spent following Michael Pollan’s advice not to eat anything your grandma wouldn’t recognize as food. She discovers, however, that a Grandma-friendly diet may not necessarily be a healthful one. Perhaps not everyone’s Grandma raised free range cattle, served with a side of garden vegetables.

For those, like myself, inclined to follow Pollan wholeheartedly and return to the more natural diets of the past, this is a somewhat comical reminder of the blessings of salad and apples.
