In Defense of Food

Author:  Michael Pollan
ISBN #: 978-1-59420-145-5
Publisher:  The Penguin Press

View Summary

Summary:
“In Defense of Food shows us how, despite the daunting dietary landscape Americans confront in the modern supermarket, we can escape the Western diet and, by doing so, most of the chronic diseases that diet causes. We can relearn what foods are healthy, develop simple ways to moderate our appetite, and return to eating to its proper context—out of the care and back to the table. Michael 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”
