Processing is evil.
Salt as you know it isn’t really salt at all
Salt gets a bad rap for its links to health problems, and it is certainly dangerous if only because of its prevalence in our diet. As my grandfather used to say, “salt is poison!” But I’d like to argue that it’s not salt we ought to fear; its the processing. Continue reading
Warning: be prepared to clean out your cabinet.
Out of all the conversations I have related to healthy eating, one of the most common subjects is vegetable oil. Like processed carbs, vegetable oil is an incredibly destructive part of our diet that seems to be completely innocuous. So here’s the deal.
