Reality check: what it takes to eat healthfully
USA Today has just run a piece on how tough it is to eat healthfully if you are poor. It quotes my University of Washington friend, Adam Drewnowski, giving a brilliantly succinct summary of precisely what it takes. He says: “It takes three things to be well nourished: knowledge, money and time. If you have three out of three, you have no problem. If you have two out of three, you can manage…The problem is when you are zero for three.” And lots of people are, and more to come it seems.
