What’s lady to eat?

20 Jul


Seriously, what can I eat? I feel very annoyed and out of sorts now. While reading ‘The Omnivore’s Dilemma’, by Michael Pollan, I wonder what to eat. If most things we now eat believing them to be healthy or even organic are processed corn, what can I eat.

In this book Pollan call us “walking processed corn” because the meat, chicken, eggs, milk even most organic foods have some processed corn in them. There is corn in yogurt, sugar, in your lotion, in the dye for clothes. The apple in the supermarket has been sprayed with pesticide made with form of corn in it!

I’m not hating on corn or anything but really?

Has anyone read this book, what are your thoughts?

    I get so weary of all these health books telling us what to eat and what not to eat. If I should pay attention to them, I will hardly eat anything. So I stay away from these books. They put so much fear in you which makes you no longer enjoy these foods. In this case, I guess ignorance is bliss.

    I have not read the book, but I feel such books are somewhat exaggerated to fulfill the author’s agenda. All one can do is eat what you know to be healthy and leave the rest in God’s hands. Like the apples, wash with some light soap solution before eating.

    Another thing…everything seems to have a season. Few years ago, everybody was saying corn sugar is a problem, now they are saying your body can’t tell the difference. Now, according to your reading, it seems that corn itself is the new problem…I console myself with the fact that corn too is Organic/Natural.

    If the scientists are learning (and starting) to preserve our foods with organic (natural food-based) pesticides, we have to give them some credit!

    Lol interesting… sometimes one needs to not pay so much attention to ” what to eat and what not” because many things we eat that are said to be good for us, after a while they become as bad as those that we must not eat at all….. so i say “Hey eat and be merry”, in moderation and workout you’ll be just fine 😉

      Huh, some of these things might be contributing to the amount of health problems now present. However, i do agree with you moderation is the way to go. Thanks for visiting!
