On Eating Liberally’s “Let’s Ask Marion” this week, I discuss Michael Pollan’s new book, In Defense of Food, his gift to the new year. Enjoy!
Given how popular this book is likely to be it is really good to know that the nutrition messages in it are fairly sound (I figured from the Omnivore’s Dilemma that he would at least make sensible suggestions about what to eat).
Sadly the book isn’t out for a little while yet in the UK, though I’m sure I’ll be reading so much about it online that it will seem very familiar by the time it arrives. All credit to Michael for getting people to talk and think about what they are putting in their mouths!
I am giving the keynote talk–“Food Politics: Making it Work for Health Promotion.”–to the conference on the Art and Science of Health Promotion, in the morning session, 9:00 a.m. It’s at the Broadmoor, 1 Lake Ave.
