He wants us all to eat healthier. That I agree with, but we have very different opinions on what constitutes good food choices.
- His take of eat local whenever possible isn’t feasible. All the farmers in New York state don’t produce enough food for New York City.
- I don’t think corn is the root of all evil

Millions of city folks have read and believe his take on modern agriculture so I was pleasantly surprised today when Laura Vanderkam a working mom brought up some new reasons why his method of eating is not sustainable, or a positive part of her family’s daily routine.
Her blog is a good read and will make even a Pollan disciple think about what they're giving up to eat by his rules. I'm not a mom, but this certainly applies to my family life as well. How about yours?
