PBS – “In Defense of Food”

If you’re interested in starting out the New Year with a better eating plan, check out the PBS production of Michael Pollan’s best-selling book In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto.

What is Pollan’s manifesto? Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Advice for healthy eating doesn’t get much simpler than that.

In Defense of Food premiers Wednesday, December 30th. Check your local listings for the time. Here’s the trailer:

Michael Pollan hosts the program himself and examines how the typical high-calorie, low-nutrient American diet came to pass and what we can do to reclaim a healthier, better-tasting, more sustainable diet.

In this excerpt, Too Much Sugar, he examines our addiction to sugary foods, especially soft drinks, and reinforces what so many nutrition experts are now saying about sugar (including my last post about “That Sugar Film”).

It looks to be a compelling and educational show. I’m looking forward to seeing it!
