In Defense of Food

… a healthy reading choice for healthy living.

In Defense Of Food by Michael Pollan (published by the Penguin Group) is perhaps the best book so far to sum up how to eat well without succumbing to all the fad diets and ‘in-the-moment’ research that we know will be tomorrow’s taboo. He essentially says “eat food, mostly plants, not too much”. It is well written, easy to understand and fascinating to read. His in depth knowledge is evident and this book is not his first foray into the subject of food/eating. He also wrote The Omnivore’s Dilemma but  I suggest you start with In Defence of Food if you’re just now trying to improve your diet and sort out all this mumbo-jumbo advice that we’re bombarded with about food these days. Read it and eat!
