Some fat is good for you

I came across this video which I thought I’d share with you.  I appreciate it is advertising a new book, but the message of the video is worth bearing in mind.

So much for low fat foods! In order for food to be stripped from its fat content it has to be processed; no thanks.  How can cheese slices  be called cheese? They remind me of plastic! Starchy foods – rice, potatoes, pasta – are OK in moderation (unless, you’re Lionel Messi).

I am inclined to go for real food … from the earth to the table.  Thanks to progress, we have to be mindful of the amount of pesticides and chemicals used, but I believe it is still the better option.

A friend of mine left a very relevant comment on my “Strawberries” post the other day, “…we have to go backwards to go forwards” – so true!

What do you think?
