So, what's real food?

Eat real food, not too much, mostly plants
— Michael Pollan

Michael Pollan said it best. Straight to the point and hardly disputable (though I'm sure someone out there has tried). As much as there are differing beliefs on the best way to feed the human form, it's hard to fight eating real food, especially vegetables and fruit. Vegans and carnivores alike can come to the table on this one.

Okay, but what's real food? The plants Michael mentions are a good start. This is stuff we have been planting, harvesting, and eating since the dawn of time. It's full of the good stuff (vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber, and on and on) that food manufactures try to add to not so real food. I'm talking about things like the multi-colored cereals that were grown in the lab instead of the field yet somehow provide you with 100% of your daily requirements of vitamin C. So, that cereal is as good to my body as a bell pepper or an orange? I'm not so sure. What do you think?
