Real Food: What to Eat and Why
Hailed as the "patron saint of farmers' markets" by the Guardian and called one of the "great food activists" by Vanity Fair's David Kamp, Nina Planck is single-handedly changing the way we view "real food." A vital and original contribution to the hot debate about what to eat and why, Real Food is a thoroughly researched rebuttal to dietary fads and a clarion call for the return to old-fashioned foods.89% (6)
In lively, personal chapters on produce, dairy, meat, fish, chocolate, and other real foods, Nina explains how ancient foods like beef and butter have been falsely accused, while industrial foods like corn syrup and soybean oil have created a triple epidemic of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. The New York Times said that Real Food "poses a convincing alternative to the prevailing dietary guidelines, even those treated as gospel," and that "radical" as Nina's ideas may be, the case she makes for them is "eminently sensible."
What if Michael Moore is Right?
No, it's not a promo for the new Michael Moore flick about how the American health care system sucks. But I'm going to comment on the idea anyway. Okay, Moore's point is that Cuba's health care system is in better shape than ours. And that Cubans tend to be heathier than most Americans. The premise is a smart one. Here's his take on it: Americans spend a ridiculous amount of money on doctors, surgeries and prescriptions. (not to mention mental health). Our doctors and medical systems are rolling in the dough. On the other hand, Cubans get free care. The medical system is state sponsored. And MDs don't drive Lexuses or Beemers. Yet, Americans tend to be less healthy than Cubans. In fact, Cuba's life expectancy is about the same as ours. And it's infant mortality rate is lower. Sure, any info from a communist or dictatorial nation is extremely suspect. But the truth is that among industrialized nations, our overall health numbers stink. So why's that? Because the Cuban and many European systems really focuses on preventive medicine, while the American way is to tackle an illness after it happens. And sometimes when too much damage has been done. No, I haven't seen the movie. But I will. By the way, has anyone ever met an American doctor struggling to get by (other than one right out of med school...and even then..)? All you doctors out there, I do respect the hard work, long yours and loads of money it takes to get a degree. And on the whole, doctors will work their butts off to make sure people stay well or get better. But I can't say that I know many doctors struggling to get by on $48,000 a year, which is just about the average American household income. No, I don't begrudge any doctor the money he or she makes. But with medicare, medical insurance and other payments almost guaranteeing that any fee will be paid, the medical profession isn't exactly the free market model. Face it. Our health care system is a monopoly that works out for those providing the services. As long as someone other than the consumer (that means your employer or the government) is paying for health care, it's going to be exorbitant. And as long as average Americans continue to eat, smoke, drink and medicate themselves into poor health, the system will be abused by people who think their actions have no long term consequences. Our system needs fixing. And we need to take better care of ourselves. Maybe if the cost of medical insurance came out of eveyone's pocket 100 percent, we might look at things differently. But I'm not sure. Bill Maher recently posed this question... If changing the American health care system and taking care of your own health was as easy as pushing a button on a TV remote, would we do it? He kind of thought it might not happen if American Idol or Survivor was on. And I'm always amazed that the average U.S. citizen gets more upset about the cost of a gallon of gas, cell phone bills, cable and internet rates than they do about the cost of going to a doctor. And I bet more folks research info on a new car, computer or camera than they on finding the best health care plan. Why do people think that health care should be a low-cost, no-brainer entitlement? Hey, don't eat all the Fritos and onion dip. I'm going outside to catch a smoke. And laugh at that guy wearing the iPod and jogging 4 miles around the neighborhood. He is going to so screw up his knees!TIME FOR A HEALTHY SNACK
CAROLINA BEACH NC: THE BOARDWALK: I told a tiny fib, sorry boys and girls. No healthy snacks here . . . just delicious donuts of only one variety -- glazed. They are melt-in-your-mouth good. They are also burn-your-mouth-good if you get them straight from the hi-temp glazing station at the end of the process. It is amazing to sit on the last stool, at the counter and watch man after man, woman after woman, kid after kid come up and by them by the dozens. Ya gotta wonder. I mean how many 'Donut Parties' could be going on at one time? Why would you buy two, three, four dozen at a clip? Are these folks making mega purchases only to steal away to a good hiding spot behind a sand dune where they can and will devour the whole sack? Only their dentists know for sure. This is a recent review of BRITTS DONUTS taken from the Yelp website . . . "Stumbled in this place with my rather round cousin. Sat down at the bar, ordered one donut, my cousin ordered a dozen. I ate one-half of mine and handed the other half to her. She took one bite, her eyes got big, and she said in a panic 'Should I have gotten 2 dozen?!' It's hard to eat just one."
