The Zombies Ate My Brains

Rescuing what might remain of the grey matter.

“Eat Anything you Want, Just Cook it Yourself”

Eat anything you want, just cook it yourself – closing words of this RSA short. (I highly recommend that you check out RSA – Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts – kinda sorta like TED, only in the UK.)

This is a wee animation that illustrates a snippet of Michael Pollan’s RSA talk in which he reveals an interesting fact: the most important factor in determining a healthy diet is that it is homemade.  

The food industry trades in addiction, he goes on, though manufacturers call it “craveability” or “snackability”.  They hook us on sugar, fat, and salt, in quantities that are not usually found in homemade dishes. And on convenience.  Those of us who cook wouldn’t go to the trouble of making homemade french fries every day, for example.  Too time consuming and messy.

Food for thought.

  1. Interesting thesis. Excuse my ignorance, but I’d never heard of RSA. Now I know 🙂
