Michael Pollan “Omnivores Dilemma” Talks About Food

Michael Pollan wrote a book titled The Omnivores Dilemma that discusses the commercial food industry and the popularity of processed foods and high fructose corn syrup. The book had a major impact on our thoughts about healthy food versus unhealthy food. My wife and I seldom ingest food or drinks with high fructose corn syrup or food that has been highly processed.

He is shown on the Democracy Now TV show in two videos that are linked below.

In the first video he talks about the relationship to confinement pork farming in Mexico to the recent swine flu outbreak. As a past college professor who taught consumer behavior I also found his comments on large food companies making unhealthy food additives live sugar appear healthy to the consumer. Another example of this is eating Cheerios to lower cholesterol.

In Video 2 he talks about how our school lunch program creates addicts of highly processed foods since that is what they serve to children. For example chicken nuggets. Why aren’t they serving healthy food to our children?

In conclusion he makes a logical assumption that we cannot address climate change without first addressing our food since our food system contributed to global warming.

I believe they will have an influence on how you think about food and show you the importance of eating healthy food.

We serve healthy food at our inn using mainly organic ingredients. we do not use any GMO’s, factory farmed meat or eggs and no high fructose corn syrup. For breakfast sample dishes visit organic breakfast.
