I Like this Guy

...he's my kind of eater. Or rather, the eater I'd like to become, especially if I lived in the Bay Area where fresh food is plentiful, beautiful and tasty...oh how I miss the Ferry Building and the wonderful Farmers Market it hosts each week.

If you want to get a taste (sorry I couldn't resist!) of what he's all about, click here to read Michael Pollan's interview on NPR. After reading more about him, I totally sold on a few of his mantras. Here is a sampling: (again, I couldn't resist another pun)

* Buy local over organic, if you have to choose; often the local farms are practically organic anyway but just aren't "certified" by the USDA. You can find out these things quite easily with a phone call.

* Cut out processed foods (anything including more than 5 ingredients)

* Stress quality of food over quantity.
