Not sure what to think...

about this. Please don't be offended by the title of the book . . . read the interview. Some very interesting thoughts set out here. I agree with some, not with all. Your thoughts? Is it nutritionally sound/correct?

I agree with most everything they said in the interview. (Haven't read the book, hadn't heard of it but looks like it might be worth an inter-library loan.) Though I'm finding that totally eliminating processed foods is really, really hard! Something I can't imagine ever accomplishing 100%.

Naturally my only point of contention is about meat, and how they lumped all meats, eggs and dairy products into the "processed foods" category.

Yes factory-farmed meats are bad for you. But obviously I don't think it means giving up meat. Meat & dairy - and fruits and vegetables and grains - are only as good for you as the way they were raised. I don't see any reason not to include natural/organic meat, eggs and dairy in your diet.

Ultimately this comes down to my personal beliefs. I don't think God intended for us to be vegetarians. Obviously we need to steward the land and the animals in a way that is honoring to God. And I don't see how raising 450 head of cattle indoors in any way resembles that remark.

Thanks for the link! I'll add it to my (growing) winter reading list.
