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.
