Letter: Poor food choices hardly a laughing matter
Concerning Danielle Wilson’s entertaining column about her eating habits: Ignorance may be bliss, but it can no longer be used as an excuse for poor food choices. Friends and family members may offer well-meaning suggestions for improved health but it is probably best to consult those who do the research. May I suggest Wilson read Michael Pollan’s “In Defense of Food” as a first step? Our well-being is not about convenience but nutrition. To succeed in most anything requires effort. Preparing healthy meals when offered many less expensive but poorer nutritional choices in our grocery stores can be a challenge. It seems to be a challenge many of us are willing to accept.
