One of the major points that Michael Pollan makes in his book, In Defense of Food, is something that really resonates with me. It’s the idea that everything is connected–the earth, our food, people, animals, our health. With the growth of processed foods, these relationships are [...]
I’ll continue with more of my “book report” on Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food.
One of Pollan’s main points is that nutritionism rules how and what we eat these days. We’re more worried about the antioxidants and low-fat labels on foods than on what the [...]
