An Eater‘s Manifesto
(And an eater I am.) Just like the people we love and interact with often—many of us have a dysfunctional, love-hate relationship with food. Most of this is borne of societal pressures and gender roles; commercial and capitalistic incentives; and an unhealthy obsession with status, stability, and the illusion of control. That’s a whole other manifesto.
But since we can’t just, like, avoid it for the rest of our lives, why not start to rectify our relationship with food, for real? [Enter Michael Pollan, stage left.]
