The restaurant business is constantly trying to keep up with food fetishists who apparently have too much time on their hands. Comfortable fist world people can talk junk food–most of the world would say–good food, plenty of calories, fat and protein.
So what’s “natural” food, and what’s “junk” food?
I get reeeeellllyyyy tired of these people who are looking for food magic and, driven by the precautionary principle and obsessive compulsive control freaks.
I say like my mother, who raised 10 kids–eat what’s on your plate.
My position is avoid weirdness or fad diets, don’t eat too many calories–get on with your life–your genetics have more to do with you longevity than your french fry intake. You worry about food a lot–get a life or get a job writing about your obsession with eating the right things–other obsessives will appreciate you.
