Last night was lecture night and we got to see Michael Pollan.
We didn’t get home until after 10pm and then I was all wound up and couldn’t sleep and I’m still having trouble forming a few complete sentences to sum up the lecture.
He talked about food, of course. Sold out the house. He’s an entertaining speaker and he backs up his statements with research and facts. I know, what a world where we give people points for using research and facts.
One stat: Americans eat 20% of their meals in the car. How awful. The only time I eat in the car is when I’m driving to Orleans and I don’t want to stop. This is when I drive by myself. I fill the passenger seat with fruit, carrot sticks, trail mix and sometimes a peanut butter and Nutella sandwich. Bottle of water. You can do the drive in 6.5 hours.
I think the worst processed food I eat is Wheat Thins (Big). I don’t know: is See’s Candy a processed food? Let’s just agree, no.
