So I watched Oprah about a week or two ago and she had Michael Pollan as her guest and they were discussing his new book Food Rules. This book is small, witty and to the point. And what it is not? A self help or a diet book. This is a short and eye opening read with one chapter called “The whiter the bread, the sooner you will be dead”. This is a good read really for anyone who wants to eat healthier and it is really food for thought.
Michael is also the master mind behind this documentary which I am dying to see. I will let you all know my “review” when I get around to watching this. I am timid because I worry that they will try to “shock & awe” you with gruesome images of slaughter which would kill me. A great friend of mine Allison (B) once said “I will always love my steak but all animals deserve respect in life and in death” And that really struck a cord with me and she could not of been more spot on.
I am always wanting to learn something new, discover a read new book/movie or read something that will strike a point in me and food is the main thing that brings people together. With that being said I think what we put in our mouths does deserve a tad more thought that the wait at a drive thru line…..I am working on it!
