Let's Get Real

Description

Tuesdays at 1:00PM EST Theme song by Benjamin Kaplan 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.

Let's Get Real - Episode 31 - Ignorance is Bliss...Until You Get Diabetes

Is knowledge actually power like they used to say in Schoolhouse Rock? This week on Let's Get Real, Erica Wides is taking on the the burden that comes with food knowledge and education. How can you order food at a restaurant when you know that every item on the menu has been tainted by foodiness? Erica explains that this condition, called orthorexia nervosa, is actually one of the best eating disorders to have! And ultimately, wouldn't you rather know what you're putting into your body? You know what they say, "Ignorance is bliss...until you get diabetes." This episode has been brought to you by Whole Foods. "Is knowledge about the food you're being fed necessarily, actually empowering? I actually think too much knowledge is paralyzing.
