In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto

SKU: b118030

There is plenty of food around, and we all love to eat.  Why should anyone need to defend it?  In the Western diet, food as been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion -- most of what we're consuming today is no longer the product of nature but of food science.  The result is what Michael Pollan call the American Paradox:  The more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we seem to become. 

With In Defense of Food  Pollan proposes a new (and a very old) answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words:  Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.  Pollan's bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.
