In Defense of Food

Last December, my husband and I took a five-hour road trip to visit family.  Along the way, we listened to Michael Pollan’s audio book, In Defense of Food.

The book revolutionized the way we eat today.  Although we already ate plenty of fruits and vegetables, we also ate processed foods.  Foods such as cereals, bars, and crackers that the corporate food industry often labels as ‘healthy’ yet has little nutritional value.

Michael Pollan inspired us to eat a diet rich in whole and plant-based foods for health reasons.  On that trip, we decided to spend our hard-earned money on food that comes from the earth, designed at its core to sustain life.  Food rich in antioxidants {which prevents aging}, and naturally {rather than added} high in vitamins and minerals.

Michael Pollan suggests:

:: “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.”

:: “Don’t eat anything that your great-great grandmother would not recognize as food.”

Have you read {or listened to} In Defense of Food?  If not, I whole-heartedly recommend it!
