From all the reading I’ve done about nutrition facts, and all the different regimes I’ve tested out for myself, and all the people and experts I’ve spoken with, one thing has become crystal clear for me:
Nutrition will always be a grey area.
This doesn’t this mean I’ve given up trying to understand nutrition, or that I just need to do more research until I know all that needs to be known. On the contrary, the grey area is a place I have settled into; it’s exactly where I want to be when I make choices about nutrition.
I came down with a nasty case of writer’s block this week. It may very well have something to do with the fact that I spent last week spread-eagle, margarita in hand, on a beach in sunny Puerto Vallarta, only to return home to Toronto’s wet blanket of damp greyness and a sun that sets before the end of my workday.
