Nina Planck: Go ahead and love sausage and cream

From: KUOW
Series: Speaker's Forum
Length: 49:30

Nina Planck calls her book "Real Food" because that's what she wants you to eat- even if it is beef, cream, sausage and whole milk. She says there's no need to be afraid of fat- if it's the natural, local, organic kind. Read the full description.

Default-piece-image-0 Feed your child whole milk. The right kind of meatloaf, fried chicken and sausage are, in fact, good for you. Farmer's market expert Nina Planck explains why conscientious omnivory keeps you healthy and why an all low-fat diet doesn't. Planck also has plenty to say about vitamins and health. She says that those who have high cholesterol should be wary of taking statens. Planck's book "Real Food: What to Eat and Why" just came out on paperback. She spoke at Town Hall Seattle on June 25th, 2007. Kim Ricketts Book Events and Seattle Neighborhood Farmers Markets sponsored the talk.
