Greens N Grains will screen the Michael Pollan documentary In Defense of Food Feb. 15.
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants,” said Pollan.
With that seven-word maxim, Pollan distills a career’s worth of reporting into a prescription for reversing the damage being done to people’s health by an industrially driven Western diet. In Defense of Food is a documentary based on his recent book that debunks the daily media barrage of conflicting claims about nutrition. He travels the globe and explores the supermarket aisles to illustrate the principles of his bestselling “eater’s manifesto,” and offers a clear answer to the question, what should I eat to be healthy?
Pollan is the author of five New York Times bestsellers: The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, The Botany of Desire, In Defense of Food, Food Rules and, most recently, Cooked: A Natural History of Transformation.
