Yummy NPR Sound Bites

While getting ready for work this morning, I was tickled to hear an interview with Mark Bittman. Without making a vegetarian diet sound like an uberfreaky or drastic lifestyle choice to the average American, I think Bittman did a good job of promoting eating less meat... save for the part where he encouraged topping oatmeal with soy sauce and scallions. I think it actually does take courage to attempt making that for breakfast.

    My takeaways from the interview:
  • What we eat impacts not only our own health, but also can adversely affect the environment;
  • Making small changes to what we eat has positive side effects on our bodies and can even help reverse some of the damage we've done to ourselves ;
  • It is not rocket science to eat well and eat healthily;
  • Even small changes make a difference!
