Diet, meet Butter

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.
