Defense of Food

On Valentines day Tune in to KUOW if you LOVE Michael Pollan

Posted at 12:04 pm by Sarah Jackson

Steve Scher, host of KUOW’s "Weekday” program, will interview Michael Pollan, author of “The Omnivore’s Dilemma” and most recently, “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto,” at 9 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, on KUOW at 94.9 FM as a special little Valentine’s Day present to us green, local-food lovin' Eco Geeks.

Here’s the link for both the live broadcast and audio archive, which came to me by way of the Cascade Harvest Coalition / Community Food Security Task Force’s brilliant listserv.

Pollan says the key to health is simple: "Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly Plants.”

Thursday he and Scher will likely address some of the following questions: What snacks are in your desk drawer? Cereal bars, low-fat crackers, 100-calorie cookie packs? Are these products real food — or just food-like substances? Are nutritionists and scientific health studies helping us reverse these trends?
