Industrial Food vs Traditional Food

Nina Planck’s Real Food: What To Eat and Why was the second book I read when I discovered the real food movement.  Her personal story is fascinating and drew me in instantly, and her information is compelling.  I highly recommend this book to anyone has an interest in moving their family towards a more traditional diet.

This video is a portion of Nina Planck’s interview with Bigthink

Hat tip to Agriculture Society via the Real Food Wednesday blog carnival.

I like how she makes a distinction between the diseases of industrialization, rather than the diseases of civilization.  She also gives very practical explanation of traditional foods and how the industrialization of food removes nutritional value.  It’s definitely worth your 6 minutes to watch.  The entire interview can be viewed here.
