The Sonoma diet actually looks good. It's more about avoiding processed foods, and about eating only natural stuff.
But we need a book for this?
Meta: This is an interesting point.
What do we consider "natural?"
Food without "chemicals or additives?"
What "chemicals or additives" specifically?
As many of you may know, there are many chemicals and additives which companies put into foods which have bizarre names (and may just by the spelling sound bad for you) but are in fact derived from "natural" sources, such as plants (or in some cases) insects.
As well, many additives are necessary to keep food from obtaining certain bacterium (and therefore prevent death of the consumer)
Also, we should examine the definition of "organic" or "all-natural" foods as these phrases not only are many times misnomers, but depending on where you live and the local regulations, can actually be less nutritious or even harmful to the consumer, (especially on the pocketbook)
One's body does not care if the Banana you ate is "Organic" or not, it simply deals with the compounds broken down into base components.
So we perhaps should discuss specific chemicals contained in foods as well as the foods themselves.
What say you?
