Food shopping will never be the same after reading this book. It is an eye opener, and really makes you think about what you are eating.
Michael Pollan says that we, as eaters of the Western Diet, need to go back to eating whole foods and not the processed junk that line supermarket shelves. His advice: only eat what your great-great grandmother would have recognized as food. Would she think that bubblegum flavored "Go-gurt" in a tube was really yogurt, or toothpaste? Would she recognize the ingredients or even be able to pronounce them?
These simple seven words guide the highly enjoyable book: Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.
