Her refreshing, no nonsense approach of uncovering truth using non-negotiable rules of This title presents the history of food science. Vivid text details how early studies of It also puts a spotlight on the brilliant scientists who made Everybody believes that diet influences health: trans fat plugs your arteries.
We are threatened by We are threatened by an epidemic of obesity and diabetes caused by too much junk food.
Salt is a silent killer. Raw, coarse, ground-with-stone grains cleanse the bowels and Everything we seem Everything we seem to believe about salt, sugar, fat, fiber, antioxidants etc. Delicious food begins with great technique.
When you simplify the science of what is happening When you simplify the science of what is happening in the kitchen, the flavor possibilities are endless. And so the task of the Better Eating writer is to present good information and to make sure that people hear it.
She, too, starts and finishes with the idea that it is good to eat your vegetables and bad to eat salty, sugary and fatty processed foods. And also bad to eat too much. She reckons that we know enough already about what a healthy diet is and sees no need for yet another science lesson.
But, unlike the finger-waggers, she considers that it is worth thinking hard about how we come to acquire bad tastes and she offers an answer intended to help change them.
The well-meaning experts lecture us about what we ought to eat; Wilson wants to understand why we eat what we do. And to her immense credit, she thinks that taste, pleasure, emotion, and memory — both fond and horrid — are important parts of the story. First Bite has all the breath-of-fresh-air appeal of common-sense — and just a few faults. The common sense is that our tastes have little to do with genetics and much to do with learning.
They may all begin their eating lives preferring the sweet and disliking the bitter, but cultures diverge, and, in some, children soon come to prefer strongly flavoured and spicy foods, and do not have to be brow-beaten into eating their vegetables. Tastes are learned; once learned, they condense into habits. But we are wrong to think that.
A major lesson Wilson wants us to draw from the learned nature of tastes is that they may be unlearned: different tastes may be acquired and different habits developed. Wilson is an optimist about how parents may get their kids to develop a taste for healthy foods. One favoured idea is the so-called Tiny Tastes regimen, created by charity Weight Concern. At four to seven months, babies will eat all sorts of things, but around the age of two, many children start rejecting new foods, and too many parents then are either defeated by toddler tantrums or start resorting to bribery, disguise and coercion.
The solution is to offer a pea-sized taste of a despised vegetable, and, if they accept it, the child gets a tick in a box and a glitzy sticker. No coercion and no losing your temper.
Wilson says she persisted for 10 to 14 days to get cabbage into one of her kids — evidently going through the same process with brussels sprouts, turnips, spinach and so on. Good luck to you in imitating that sort of heroic endurance. Wilson acknowledges that change may be hard and even offers some tips on how to lubricate the process.
