Eat anything you want. Just cook it YOURSELF! (says Michael Pollan)
I can’t eat anything I want in the broad sense given my food intolerances, but I really like this way of thinking. I do cook or prepare all my food and I do not eat anything out of a box, can or jar. (with some very few exceptions) It really does change the way you eat in very deep and meaningful ways. And it changes the way you think about food as well. It’s been a really great education for me to consider how food comes to my table. I also have come to appreciate cooking in a whole new way and I always fancied myself good in the kitchen. There is a way that being in touch with my food has allowed me to become more in touch with myself, as animal and human. It’s very much a sort of mindfulness practice.
Can you really have your cake and eat it? According to Michael Pollan, you can. In this fun RSA Short, Pollan explains how to eat well by following one simple rule without the need for fad diets or deprivation.
Michael Pollan is an award-winning food writer whose books include, “Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation“, “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto” and “The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals“
Eating wholesome whole real food is important for body/mind/spirit health and well-being. I’ve written a lot about my adventure with diet and healing here: Nutrition and gut health, Mental health and diet
