Welcoming in a new era of flexitarianism

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly…whatever you like: Nice, if rambling, article about how writers like Mark Bittman, Michael Pollan, and new entrant Robyn O’Brien (whose very interesting book, “The Unhealthy Truth: How Our Food Is Making Us Sick – And What We Can Do About It,” we’ve just started reading) are giving conscientious but confused eaters “permission to draw our own lines. Instead of thinking about our ‘food choices,’ as eating is coming to be known, as a zero-sum game, we’re being allowed to be a little hypocritical. It’s OK to eschew foie gras but still eat meat, to cut out red meat but still consume chicken and fish, and it might even be acceptable to cook a hot dog on a camping trip.” (Ottawa Citizen) Seriously folks, don’t get so caught up in “chewing the right thing” that you forget to enjoy eating!
