Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Those three rules are the overarching theme of Michael Pollan's book, In Defense of Food. You know, the one I can't seem to get into the re-read of. When I do, it'll be great fodder for blog posts, being full of interesting guidelines and ideas for healthy eating at its end (such as the emphasis on eating more leaves to balance against your consumption of grains - but I get ahead of myself).

Today Mr. Pollan was interviewed over at Democracy Now, and you can see a video of that (or read the transcript) here. He covers his usual themes from his books, and expanding on them in light of current events like swine flu and the food industry's response to what consumers learned from his books.

I've been told that at least one person had a problem posting comments here on the site. I tried tweaking my comment settings; if anyone is having comment problems still, please email me at knockoutlill [at] gmail [dot] com.

  1. Oh, I didn't realize you had posted about this. I've got to keep up with your blog better....I'm a slacker.
