Are you eating food?

We live an a world with an astonishing amount of food choices. You can eat an apple, or pick up a ready-to-heat apple “pie” at the gas station, for example. As we get further and further from our food sources, and even from the simple act of home cooking, it gets harder to know what in your food is, well, food. Nutrition experts may argue over the healthiest things to eat, but one thing is pretty clear: overly processed food isn’t good for you or the planet.
For help in making healthy (and perhaps by extension, green) food choices, Darya Pino, Ph.D, made a humorous flow chart at Summer Tomato to help you figure out if what you’re shopping for is food. It’s tongue-in-cheek, but it does make you think. Take a look, have a chuckle and make healthy and green food shopping choices!
