Why are Americans so afraid to eat horse? This week on Let’s Get Real, Erica Wides is talking about the trendiness of meat, and falsehoods in the industrial food system. Would horse meat be a problem if it weren’t hidden in microwavable lasagna? Erica thinks not! Later, tune in to hear Erica talk about the invasion of tattooed and moustachioed butchers in Brooklyn and beyond. Why has working with real food become an identity marker? Shouldn’t eating food be the norm? Erica wraps up the show by explaining how foodiness has infiltrated vegetarian and vegan food and made it wholly unhealthy! This episode has been brought to you by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

 

“While nobody is up in arms about the pesticides, estrogen, antibiotics, or cancer-causing artificial colors and flavors intentionally put in our food, everyone is up in arms, or hooves, that food has been found in our food.” [6:00] — Erica Wides on Let’s Get Real
