What to Eat

What to Eat, the latest book from nutritionist Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, attempts to address the increasing confusion among consumers about the myriad food choices presented by today's retail food marketplace. "This book is about how to think abour the food you eat," writes Dr. Nestle. "By the time you finish it, you should be able to walk into a supermarket, a restaurant, a fast-food outlet, or any other place that sells food and know why the foods are there, what they are, and whether they are worth buying."

Just what we need, another attempt at getting people to eat what they 'should' eat as opposed to what they WANT to eat.

I've got nothing against sound nutrition but until these experts start addressing the selfish, gluttonous id within us all, they will not change what we eat.

Even if you haven’t taken a cross-country fast food odyssey or eaten out with friends who pack their own gourmet salt, you can show your Frank Bruni spirit with an "I am Frank Bruni" t-shirt, designed by tastingmenu.com. If you’d rather not wear your statement like a foodie superhero, you can order it on a messenger bag instead.
