That's the very appropriate question in a sense being asked by author and journalist Maryn McKenna in response to a recent piece in the New York Times' Motherlode column where KJ Dell'Antonia, inspired by the work of folks like Michael Pollan and Mark Bittman, vowed to, for one whole week, eschew processed in place of home cooked.
nonplussed by NYTimes column: "we'll cook our own meals for a week!" makes it sound like climbing Everest. http://t.co/yJeNGseYGE— Maryn McKenna (@marynmck) June 16, 2013
I wholeheartedly agree with Maryn - the fact that one week of home cooking is seen as sufficiently challenging to warrant a New York Times Motherlode column is proof positive that when it comes to healthy living, society is well and fully broken.
Bring back home economics!
