A book Review- In Defense of Food

In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan
Peguin Books

WARNING: This book will make you think.

If The Omnivore's Dilemma left you wondering what you should eat, you will find the answers in this book. Pollan's advice; Eat food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants, seems simple enough but is not as easy as it sounds. Faced with the overwhelming choice of food products in the super market, this book out lines the ways to shop and eat which are best for you and the food chains you are a part of. This book will give the knowledge you need to make informed food purchase decisions, and show you how you can "vote with your fork"
Enjoy! ( I did.)

Have you read Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". It's fascinating.
Here is a link to the BookCrossing journal entries (I participated in a "book ring" for this one and then went out and bought my own copy); my entry is #6

Check this one out:Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle". It's along the same lines, just coming at it from a different perspective.
My journal entry is number 6.
