Check out this post from Northwest Edible Life: The Terrible Tragedy of the Healthy Eater. The post is funny, but I can also really identify with it.
For the past three years, I’ve spent a lot of time reading about healthy eating and traditional foods and trying to incorporate more whole foods into my diet WAPF-style. I can’t really get behind everything that the WAPF espouses, but I’ve been trying to make small changes as I go. However, more and more it seems like as soon as I incorporate a particular food into my diet, I find new information indicating that said food is actually terrible for me, and I should immediately cease eating it (I’m looking at you raw leafy greens). Sometimes I feel like I can’t win.
You know how the WAPF preaches that we should all be taking Green Pastures fermented cod liver oil? How it’s all over the internet as the best and only cod liver oil one should take? I’ve been choking this stuff down for the better part of 3 years…and then I read this. Smack in the face. Oh well, I’m still taking it. At some point I just have to accept that I am doing my best.
