At its heart, Michael Pollan’s message is simple: Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Pollan, author of New York Times bestsellers The Omnivore’s Dilemma and the recently released In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, is widely recognized as a leader of a growing movement to reclaim our food from the growing danger of agribusiness.
Waylon Lewis, editor and founder of ElephantJournal.com, recently interviewed Pollan about communicating green to the masses, why he eats meat, swine flu and more for the video interview series Walk the Talk Show. Check it out:
"You can go to the supermarket now and meat comes in these boneless shrink-wrapped packages with very little reminder that it's an animal you're eating unless you buy a whole chicken... we're so in denial about this transaction with these animals. So one of the things I try to do in my work is remind people what's at stake, the sacrifice that goes into eating meat, if that's what you do."
