In Defense of Food

This month’s theme is going to be based on Michael Pollan’s book In Defense of Food. I am going to check the book out tomorrow from the library, read it, and then write a review, and base my discussions this month on his book.

Feel free to chime in in the comments. If you have read, or are reading this book, what are your thoughts? Let’s learn from each other!


  1. I absolutely LOVED this book. We got it on CD and listened to it as a family.

  2. I started reading the Omnivore's Dilemma by Pollan. I should really finish it so I can talk about it.


"To be sent greeting... by... the word of wisdom...

Given for a principle with promise, adapted to the capacity of the weak and the weakest of all saints...

All wholesome herbs [or plants] God hath ordained for the consitution, nature, and use of man-

Every herb [or plant] in the season thereof, and every fruit in the season thereof; all these to be used with prudence and thanksgiving...

And all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings... shall receive health in their navel and marrow to their bones...

And shall run and not be weary, and shall walk and not faint."
