The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book has been on my shelf for 13 years. I finally dusted it off, literally, and got down to reading. It has forced me, as I knew it would, to yank my head out of the sand with regard to food, where it comes from, what its production does to the animals and the earth, and a few other things I had happily chosen to forget since my vegetarian days.
While not a book for everyone, I found it informative and sometimes entertaining. I’m not quite ready to give up meat but I have found a local butcher shop that sells farm-raised, grass and pasture-fed animals. So there’s a start.
I really enjoyed this book, too.
