There is nothing inherently wrong with any of them products.
Some people are scared/ worried/ overly concerned in some way of "fat", some scared of protein, for some the problem is carbs, others blame their nutrition woes on salt, this is why there are fad diets. For most people the problem is portion size, compulsive, addictive habits, and number of meals that is the demise of their girlish figure.
Good products coupled with decent technique should lead to nutritious meal options. Knowledge is power and nutrition needs to become a larger part of the role Chefs play.
When it comes to nutrition Oscar Wilde said it best; "Everything in moderation, even moderation."
Sometimes its just fun to gorge at the Corral or to not eat for a few days. Cant be too healthy all the time, the stress of it will kill ya first anyway.
Those saying it is cost prohibitive or too time consuming need to overcome them barriers and eat good food.
I love you book the Flavor Bible I ordered it last Summer while I was on Parental leave, I look forward to reading more soon. " The Nutrition Bible"??? !!!
