In Defense of Food

Just got done reading Michael Pollan’s #1 New York Times Best Seller In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto. His overarching and extremely simple theme is “Eat Food [real food, that is], Not Too Much, Mostly Plants”.  Ironically, or not so much, this theme, although not from a Christian perspective, is very close to a few guidelines Erin and I have found very helpful in our food journey (which came from a book entitled What the Bible Says about Healthy Living):  Eat the Food God made for food (yes, real food); eat it as close to the way He made it as possible; and, do not get addicted to food (or don’t eat too much).

There’s a lot more in this book which, as its title suggests, defends food mainly against the movement of Nutritionism - where the dialogue around“food” is replaced with “nutrients” and food is a mere sum of its nutrient parts - which has become today’s food culture.  A recommended food read. 

Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did!
