More useless health advice. I don't recall where, but I recently read an article that said the key to good health was to not eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognize as food. I think their point was to eliminate processed, packaged, and junk food. But the grandmother analogy really doesn't work and many people reading the article may not get the real point. I'm quite sure my grandmother (and even great-grandma) recognized breads, pasta, pastries, fried chicken, corn dogs, potato chips, and ice cream. In fact, Grandma probably even baked many of the cakes, pies, and cookies I ate as a young child. So to say don't eat what Grandma wouldn't have eaten and you'll be healthy doesn't seem very helpful. It won't help many less-educated readers eliminate the real problem foods.
No announcement yet.
Don't eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognize...?
