Is your food…naked?
Mira Calton, CN and Dr. Jayson Calton describe “naked calories” as, “calories that have had their micronutrients stripped in one way or another.” They’re talking mainly about the processed, factory farmed food that’s so ubiquitous in the standard American diet. In their book, Naked Calories, they take a look at the global pandemic of micronutrient deficiency that our industrial food system has spurred and how we can take control of our plates and our health.
Naked Calories just came out, and the authors were kind enough to offer up a copy for one lucky Eat Drink Better reader, and there are a few days left to enter! Here’s how you can win:
