In Defense of Food
An Eater's Manifesto

This book is as fascinating as all the reviewers keep telling us it is. Michael Pollan doesn't address every angle of every issue, but this book is a great starting point for thinking more critically and carefully about the foods we buy and eat, and how those choices impact our environment and our bodies. --Recommended by Maia, City Lights Books

The companion volume to The New York Times bestseller The Omnivore's Dilemma.

Michael Pollan's last book , The Omnivore's Dilemma, launched a national conversation about the American way of eating; now In Defense of Food shows us how to change it, one meal at a time. Pollan proposes a new answer to the question of what we should eat that comes down to seven simple but liberating words: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants. Pollan’s bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start making thoughtful food choices that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it means to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.
