it was ok
Read from February 26 to 27, 2011

This book didn't provide the insight I thought it would. It reminded me of "Eat, Pray, Love" but lacking in depth (not that the aforementioned had much depth). The end was such a let down because she decided that the "secret" to being at peace with her eating and weight issues was portion control and tracking what she ate. Gee - sound familiar? But the book was a tad bit interesting in finding out how certain foods make it from beginning to plate. The slaughterhouse information was insightful in a sickening sort of way.

message 1: by Ellen (new) - added it

Ellen If you liked the part you mentioned, then put Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma" on your to-read list - its absolutely fascinating and may even change the way you eat. Then read Barbara Kingsolver's "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle." Almost reads like a novel. This one did change my eating habits for the better.

Carol Campbell I think it gave me enough info. As a kid we butchered cattle, pigs and chickens but I only had to participate in the chickens. I can barely eat meat as it is.
