Daikon Radish

A White Radish with Spirit

 

Author Michael Pollan says, “Eat food. Mostly plants. Not too much.” It sounds like a Zen koan, doesn’t it? By “food,” Mr. Pollan means eating nonprocessed, natural fare. He says, “If your grandmother wouldn’t recognize it, don’t eat it.” That rules out the center aisles of the supermarkets where the snacks are usually found. Instead of chips, he encourages us to eat locally and seasonally—and cook at home instead of going out for big carbon-footprint meals.
