In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto by Michael Pollan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars This book reads like Fast Food Nation meets The Schwarzbein Principle. In other words, it has a lot of great information about the way we, as Americans, should be eating, but in a very easy to digest (hehe) format. I read the whole book in two days and felt like the research put into how “nutrition research” is done was very interesting and I agree with his points on taking food as a sum of it’s part rather than breaking them down into one element or another. He quoted a lot from the Schwarzbein Principle, whether he knew it or not, especially with the idea of shopping around the supermarket. I was also happy to see that he agreed with the hypothesis I put forth in my WAMU commentary September 2009 http://wamu.org/programs/mc/09/09/18.php… and had the research to back it up!
