Quick Bit with Michael Pollan

I picked up The Omnivore’s Dilemma right before I started school. I’m sad that I haven’t finished reading it. I have lots of other reading that, while very enjoyable, interesting, and thought-provoking, seems a little more necessary and a little more like “work.” I still keep buying Michael Pollan’s books though.

He has a new book, In Defense of Food, An Eater’s Manifesto. I will likely buy a copy at the University Book Store which will give me a free ticket to hear Michael Pollan speak at Town Hall in Seattle.

In the mean time, here’s a snippet from an interview I ran across today:

I have eaten locally and seasonally for years now, although I used to supplement my farm share frequently. I would buy meat, cheese, fruit, out-of-season veggies, and loads of “pantry items.” I now find myself supplementing my farm share with less, although I frequently buy fruit. More importantly, I’m actively working to supplement it less. I’ll expound in a later post. I have lots of reading to catch up on right now!
