i skimmed and got to this:
"processed food" does NOT = meat in my house.
The dangerous habits of Americans or Europeans who eat only about 5 percent of their caloric intake from fresh produce and the majority of calories from processed foods, does not in anyway make a diet centered on meat health supporting.
5% of calories in a 2000 calorie daily diet is 100 cals. to get 100 cals in vegetables you'd need 11 oz of, say, broccoli, or an entire head of lettuce, and that considerably exceeds the usda rec for servings of vegetables each day.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
