What I'm reading: March

This month I read In Defense of Food. Pollan boils the message of this book down to a very simple phrase: "eat food. not too much. mostly plants." Throughout the book, Pollan traces the rise of "fake" food. Over the past few decades, Americans have moved away from whole food, and instead focused on nutrients and food science. Now we're at a point where "the more we worry about nutrition, the less healthy we seem to become." 

This book was super interesting. I liked learning more about what goes into the food we eat today and how things have changed so quickly. Good read.
