In Defense of Food (Guest Post)

If you’ve read this blog at all over the past month, you’ve read about a “wife” in many of the posts.  That’s me.  Hi…

And right now, I enjoy listening to books in the car on the way back and forth to work.  I’ve listened to novels, memoirs, super funny stuff, stories that had me wiping my eyes in the parking lot, and much in between.  Right now, I’m listening to “In Defense of Food” by Michael Pollan. (It’s read by a guy that also read one of the novels I listened to previously, so it’s a bit funny to get used to hearing his voice in this very information-loaded, almost textbook style book.) And I’m learning so much!!  I feel like I was brought up with “real food” by my parents, and we have sought out “real food” over the course of our adult-hood. I’m only on the third chapter, but so far this book has really done a good job with the history of the Western diet and “nutritionism”.  I’m quite intrigued, and quite ready to do a whole “embrace” of real food or a “refrain” of fake food.  I’ll let Brian blog about that though…
