I come across videos and podcasts about health and food on a daily basis. Few hit the mark like this Youtube video, which has compelled me to share it with you. Michael Pollen is one of my most favourite authors. His books are thought provoking, thorough and simply marvellous.
This short video encompasses so much of the information I have set out to share by developing Well Nourished. Being healthy is not just about following ‘diets’, it is the whole process of sourcing, preparing and cooking your food. This is why I freely share my favourite recipes and as many practical tips for improving your health as I can. I urge you to check out this 20- minute video.
“The scientific understanding of nutrition is very primitive, much less is known than you would think. What matters most about one’s health is not necessarily the nutrients or calories. I found what predicted a healthy diet more than anything else was the fact that it was being cooked by a human being, not a corporation. Eat anything you want, just cook it yourself” Michael Pollan
PS – If you eat MacDonald’s fries at all and don’t intend to watch this whole video, then skip to around the 3-minute mark for some amazing info that will have you skipping the fries from now on.
So many poignant points in this video – what parts ring true for you? Let’s discuss it, post a comment below.
