  • Mark Bittman-Food Manisfesto for the Future

    Very interesting op ed article by Mark Bittman in the NY Times today. With the exception of him stating that a largely plant based diet is the way to promote health and attack chronic diseases, he has a lot of pretty good stuff to say. Certainly worth the read.
    You can read it here:

    Ending agricultural subsidies would go an enormously long way toward improving the health & well-being of the country. However, it will never happen.

      I thought it was a brilliant article - but, but... I don't like the idea of taxing junk food and foods that make you unhealthy. Bittman cites soda and cheeseburger - but as the people who make laws are CW up to the eyeballs, wouldn't it end up with meat fat being taxed above everything else?

      Before this (brilliant) idea could work, conventional wisdom would have to have been overturned and the primal concept embraced by the powers that be.

        I wouldn't say "never", they can only print so much funny money...

          I will miss The Minimalist, but this new column is going to be fun. He nailed it again today.

            Which brings us to the powerful person: Oprah. Ms. Winfrey, who has been on more diets than the rest of us combined, challenged her staff to “go vegan” for a week. Intriguing, except her idea of surviving without meat and dairy — no explanation given for why we should go from too much to none — is to fill your shopping cart with fake versions of both, like meatless chicken breasts and dairy-less cheese.
