Given the atrocities of factory farming - cruelty to animals, contribution to global warming, danger of disease to human consumers, enormous amounts of excrement, etc., etc., I think that any recommendation that involves eating more meat (see beef above) should contain the caveat that the animals should be grass-fed and humanely raised. Anything less is purely irresponsible. Having said that, I recently received the new issue of Eating Well and was delighted to see the large number of recipes containing meat substitutes or just plain no animal ingredients. I realize that the magazine is not the Vegetarian Times, and does not appeal to the same demographic, but the introduction of great tasting meatless recipes that appeal to everyone is surely a step in the right direction.

Great article ,however I would have liked to see more details. eg--How many eggs are too much or if tere are any limits

Thanks for the information! These are five foods I love and have always refused to think they were all bad. Now I can continue eating them without all the extra work of explaining away the guilt and justifying why I keep them in my families diet.
As a side note all the men in my family have eaten eggs and bacon for breakfast every morning before working the farm and not a single one of them has heart problems.

I beleive in the idea of all things in moderation...I even use a pat of butter where needed. But it's nice to see the record set straight on eggs and beef...they are surely important proteins in our diet.

My wife and I love peanut butter, but only the fresh ground kind, not the sugary packed grocery store stuff.
