Day 17 - Identifying False Friends

We’ve all heard the hype about what’s good and bad to eat. It’s so easy to fall prey to (even for me) when you hear news report after news report telling you that there is only one type of food to eat. We have been so far removed from our roots for so long, that these claims actually seem true! And as we buy into it, we get sicker and sicker as a society.
