Michael Pollan

We were fortunate enough to be invited to the Silicon Valley Reads premier event featuring Michael Pollan. His book entitled In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto was chosen as this year’s book. In an auditorium which was packed (many had to be turned away) he discussed his views on food, nutrition and life in general. His advice was gentle: Eat real food, not too much and mostly leaves; Don’t eat anything your great-grandmother wouldn’t recognize; Don’t eat foods made with more than five ingredients; Eat all the junk food you want provided you make it yourself. His message was stronger: With the subsidies for corn – and hence corn syrup – our government is killing us. If you haven’t read this book, we suggest you pick it up and peruse it. You might be surprised by what you learn.   It is easy reading and thought-provoking.  Michael was funny, humble and very articulate.  But what else would you expect from some one from the University of California at Berkeley?  (Hmmm…perhaps we should disclose that Nants graduated from there many moons ago.)  Seriously, this is a must-read for anyone interested in food…and who isn’t?
