Book Review: In Defense of Food

Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food is quite a long read, but both my husband and I found the message to be of great value; we powered through the audio book a couple weeks ago during a long road trip.  The blog A Merry Life summarizes this read extremely well, as most of the write-up focuses on valuable facts and ruminations regarding the “American Diet” (which sadly is seeping into the all corners of the earth).   Michael Pollan succinctly captures his sentiments towards this Westernized diet in his memorable line, “The idea is that much of what we are now eating is not actually food and how we are eating it is not actually eating.”  Check out Mary’s comprehensive summary at the following link: Book Review In Defense of Food.
