I clicked on the link to this article leery of what foods it would tell me I should "never eat," expecting red meat or eggs. Turns out, it advises against grain-fed beef, non-organic apples & potatoes, microwaved popcorn (due to chemicals in the bag linings) & farmed salmon. They've got a way to go on the topic of milk, but it looks like they're headed in the right direction!
Is this on par for Prevention Magazine's articles, or is this magazine just starting to see the light? Any chance that others will follow?
I liked this article, particularly because it wasn't written by someone already in the ancestral eating community (as far as I know.)
I particularly liked the budget tips, as we can't all purchase only grass fed meat and certified organic produce (although I mix in as much as I can possibly afford.)
To me this just seemed pro-organic/anti-chemical rather than really getting into CW about which types of foods are best for you. It doesn’t really discuss whether or not you should eat a particular food per se; it mainly just says to pick the organic/chemical-free one.
One of the arguments they use in favor of grass-fed beef is that it is “lower in saturated fats that have been linked to heart disease.” On the other hand, it did also say “lower in inflammatory omega-6s”, which I suppose is a pretty interesting take from a CW magazine.
I thought it was a great article considering it was from a mainstream commercial magazine, but I was a bit baffled by the potato comment. The potatoes I buy now are local/organic, but I have had lots and lots of conventional potatoes sprout in my pantry over the years. I'm not sure what that guy was talking about.
