Looking For A Good Read?

I should really be packing my bags for Big Sur since I leave on Friday but I felt like a quick blog post is a must!!

There are a lot of documentaries lately that explores the food industry such as; Fat Dead and Nearly Sick, Forks Over Knives, Food INC. etc... If your looking for a good read though, Michael Pollan's - In Defense Of Food is awesome. Heck, I recommend any book by Michael Pollen. He is the author of four New York Times bestsellers: Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual; In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto; The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World.

I haven't read all his books but I thought I would just name them anyways. LOL

Read this book though and you will find that most of what American's eat today is NOT real food. He defines our market, lifestyle, and what we know (scientifically or not) about health and the benefits of REAL food, which so far have yet to be recreated better by humans than nature.

  1. I am a sucker for these type of books and documentaries. Although they are scary to think about, it's good to be "in the know" of what is really going on in our food world. I have definitely made healthier choices because of it.
