Food and nutrition is a complicated, long debated topic. To some, it’s just a science while to others it’s much more. For me, food is fuel that also happens to represents memories, culture, and lifestyle. I often find that most information around food and nutrition seems to be very “preachy” and one-sided and fails to give a balanced perspective to different approaches to food. However, when I started to dive into Michael Pollan’s content, I felt like it was different – in a good way.
“Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants.”
This seemingly simple phrase coined by food journalist Michael Pollan packs so much power and I would love to dissect it with you all in the upcoming book club I’m hosting. That’s right, we are diving into our first Citrus & Gold virtual book club and I couldn’t be more excited.
If you want to critically think about your own food & nutrition, if you’ve heard of Michael Pollan and have been wanting to read his material, or even if you have read his books but still want to participate in the conversation this book club is for you.
The 5-week virtual book club will start on Friday September 1st right before Labor Day! This book club is open to everyone so ask your friends, boyfriend, family to join! We are reading In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. You can conveniently grab a copy on Amazon here.
I will keep you guys accountable by giving reading assignments for each week but you can take this at your own pace as needed. This is supposed to be fun not stressful! And since this is a virtual book club you can join from wherever you are at whatever time is convenient for you.
I will also start a pop-up FB group where I’ll post weekly prompts to allow for discussion. Finally, I’ll work with you all to coordinate a virtual book club meeting via video chat during the 4th or 5th week.
I’m excited to give this a shot, who’s ready to JOIN THE CLUB??
