Our friend Umbra Fisk At Grist.org is taking notes from one of our favorite author/activists, Michael Pollan. In his latest book, Food Rules where he explores simple rules for eating that can benefit your health and the planet, he suggests, "eat as much junk food as you want as long as you make it yourself." The rationale behind this is that if people are forced to go to the effort of making "junk foods" like Twinkies and french fries, it's way too much work to eat it at the same frequency that many people normally eat processed foods and snacks. Since we love all things DIY, watch Umbra make her own delicious Twinkies.
