You Are What You Eat Eats :: Michael Pollan
A quote from Michael Pollan, from his book “In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto.”

I’ve always loved Michael Pollan’s take on the quote, “You are what you eat,” made famous by cookbook author and early proponent of the organic food movement Adelle Davis in the 60’s. The quote probably had even earlier roots going back to 1826 where it was coined by Anthelme Brillat-Savarin—rough translation, “Tell me what you eat and I will tell you what you are.”
