I was at Costco today and stumbled across a book by Michael Pollan called “In Defense of Food : Eat Food, Not to Much, Mostly Plants.” The title struck me funny so I picked it up and flipped through it really quick. The part I happened to flip to made me laugh out loud so I thought I would share.
Pollan was writing about the overabundance of food additives and he used bread as an example. I didn’t buy the book or write anything down, but basically he had an ingredient comparison of Sara Lee Soft and Smooth 100% Whole Wheat Bread to a Wheat Bread your Grandmother would make. My Grandmother knew dinner was done when the smoke alarm went off; so I’m going to pretend by finding a normal Wheat Bread recipe available at Cooks.com.
The fictitious Grandmothers ingredients are:
yeast, water, honey, olive oil, eggs, whole wheat flour and salt.
And now our friend Sara Lee’s version care of Safeway.com
