Directed by Michael Schwarz. With Michael Pollan. In Defense of Food tackles a question more and more people around the world have been asking: What should I eat to be healthy? Based on award-winning journalist Michael Pollan’s best-selling book, the program explores how the modern diet has been making us sick and what we can do to change it.
Rewatched In Defense of Food this morning, about 9 months after I first watched it. I forgot how interesting it is and how simple the advice is, advice which when you think about it makes sense. I know that when I think about the types of food I’ve eaten in the latter part of this year, and then think about Michael Pollan’s mantra of ”Eat food, not too much, mostly Plants” I can see the benefits of avoiding the middle of the supermarket.
