Summary: Hailed as the "patron saint of farmers' markets" and one of the "great food activist," Nina Planck is single-handedly changing he 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. In lively, personal chapters on produce, diary, meat, fish, chocolate, and other real foods, Planck 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." Book jacket.
