Eat Food. Not Too Much. Mostly Plants.
…And read this book.
I probably can’t tell you how excited I was to snag an advanced copy of this book last week.
Already being a fan of Michael Pollan and specifically his last book, Omnivore’s Dilemma, this book is a continuation of his essay entitled “Unhappy Meals”, published in The New York Times Magazine.
It was wonderful to read about many opinions I already shared about what we’re being told to eat. The fantastic amount of precision and research put into this celebration of food is extraordinary. Being a “foodie” some facts regarding nutritionism was not something I’d thought of much but do believe in quite a bit. If you’re like me, this book may be redundant as to the ways you already appreciate food and if that’s the case, upon reading you may agree that this could be the book to send Michael Pollan on a Al Gore-esq road tour promoting respect for growers, quality of food, tradition and community in order play a hand in the relief of global warming as well as Western Diseases.
Buy this book, read it, and share it. In writing or reading a blog, it’s obvious we all appreciate food. We flock to quality ingredients, love preparing them and sharing with others. This book details the importance of all that and could be the tipping point that sits us down to the best meal of our lives.
