This! Food choices are all relative, and the goal should be to always keep moving up the ladder of healthy, healthier, healthiest. For example, when I was a college student, I was eating Top Ramen and frozen burritos, and basically nothing else. *Shudder*

Then I graduated to healthier foods, but was still also eating junk like candy and Pop-Tarts. Now, I'm not eating any candy and replaced Pop-Tarts with oatmeal in the morning.

Eating healthy while living in a unhealthy food culture the way we do means we have to constantly keep improving and going against the grain of the normative food choices, like the evil bag salad and sugary cereals.

Great article, Mike, thanks for sharing!
