What to eat?

By: Elna Botes van Schalkwyk

Struggling through a mountain of nutritional advice to figure out what to eat?

The basics are pretty straighforward – here's a few thoughts for starters:

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. – Michael Pollan

The scientific truth may be put quite briefly; eat moderately, having an ordinary mixed diet, and don't worry. – Robert Hutchison

High-tech tomatoes. Mysterious milk. Supersquash. Are we supposed to eat this stuff? Or is it going to eat us? – Annita Manning

Sugar is a type of bodily fuel, yes, but your body runs about as well on it as a car would. – V.L. Allineare

If you often feel that healthy eating is too much of a chore, think about how you're giving your body what it needs, and how you're improving your long-term health. The best and most efficient pharmacy is within your own system. – Robert C. Peale
