On Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides walks you down the aisles of the surreal world of food, serving up a heaping dose of reality by separating the food from the foodiness so you can forage, hunt, gather, trap and fish for real food anywhere, even in a foodiness-filled mega market. Incisive, pragmatic, sarcastic, and an unrepentant know-it-all when it comes to anything food, on Let’s Get Real Chef Erica Wides does the job for you of sifting out everything that’s fake in the world of food – from “foodiness” marketing and cooking show shams to “health-halo green-washing” and annoying whole-food righteousness – so you never unknowingly chow down on carpeting again.

Congratulations to Erica Wides; it's the one year anniversary of Let's Get Real! More importantly, it's the "I Told You Show", and Erica's here with the Foodiness Time Machine to take you back in time to show you that all of her food predictions have come true. Learn that the dietary saturated fat in butter does not actually contribute to coronary disease, but that foodiness is the real culprit! Erica also revisits the fitness foodiness fad, and finds further evidence that protein shakes don't help you "perform" better. Erica also talks about genetically modified apples that take 3 weeks to brown, as well as the benefits of real fermented foods. Would you believe that foodiness has been linked to diabetes, Alzheimer's, and even stupidity? Tune in and get educated on this very special episode of Let's Get Real! This program has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
"Foodiness has retrained us to mistrust our senses!"
"Fermentation is food that's slowly going bad. Isn't that what I said? You're supposed to eat food that goes bad."
