Eat food, not too much, mostly plants

Ever wonder what it means when you read a label in a grocery store and see the words "food product"?

Do you feel guilty about eating that slice of yummy chocolate cake?

Are you struggling with your health and wondering if your diet could be part of the problem?

In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan is the next WMCC lunchtime book discussion title. In it, Pollan tries to explain, from a journalist's point of view, what has happened to the food industry and why the American diet is making so many of us unwell.

We'll be meeting in the library on Thursday, October 23rd, around 12:15 (bring your lunch). Copies are still available in the library, both in print and cd formats.
