#1 New York Instances BestsellerFood. There is plenty of it about, and we all adore to consume it. So why need to anyone need to have to defend it?Since in the so-known as Western diet, food has been replaced by nutrients, and common sense by confusion--most of what we’re consuming nowadays is longer the solution of nature but of food science. The outcome is what Michael Pollan calls the American Paradox: The a lot more we be concerned about nutrition, the much less wholesome we see to grow to be. With In Defense of Food, Pollan proposes a new (and extremely old) answer to the query of what we ought to consume that comes down to seven basic but liberating words: \"Eat meals. Not as well a lot. Mostly plants.\" Pollan’s bracing and eloquent manifesto shows us how we can start off making thoughtful food options that will enrich our lives, enlarge our sense of what it signifies to be healthy, and bring pleasure back to eating.\"Michael Pollan [is the] designated repository for the nation\'s meals conscience.\"-Frank Bruni, The New York Times\" A remarkable volume . . . engrossing . . . [Pollan] gives these prescriptions Americans so desperately crave.\"-The Washington Post\"A tough, witty, cogent rebuttal to the proposition that meals can be redced to its nutritional components with out the loss of one thing important... [a] lively, invaluable book.\"--Janet Maslin, The New York Times\"In Defense of Meals is written with Pollan\'s customary bite, ringing clarity and brilliance at connecting the dots.\"-The Seattle TimesMichael Pollan’s newest book Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation--the story of our most trusted food expert’s culinary education--was published by The Penguin Press in April 2013.
