WATCH: Michael Pollan Tries Introducing Stephen Colbert To Healthy Food

Michael Pollan stopped by The Colbert Report last night to try getting Stephen Colbert to do something that the chip-guzzling, soda-shooting pundit would never do: cook healthy food.

Promoting his latest book Cooked: A Natural History Of Transformation, Colbert resisted, especially after learning that Pollan separated his cookbook into “Earth” and “Fire” sections (“I base all my eating off the band Meatloaf,” he quipped, wondering if Pollan was inspired by the band Earth, Wind and Fire). But with health crusader Pollan on his fourth book, Colbert’s massive ego is unlikely to stop him any time soon.
