In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto
I have got to read all of this author's work, ASAP. I really liked A Place of My Own: The Education of an Amateur Builder, and this one blew me away. Every eater thinks they know what it means to eat healthily. Most could probably go on for hours on the subject, and most people are probably very certain and very wrong. This book is not just another self-aggrandizing diatribe about what is and isn't healthy. This is an analysis of the historical definition of healthy eating, and how it varies throughout the world. Human beings are omnivores, and traditional diets from all over the world, despite their many differences, have variety and whole, natural sourcing in common. This book touches on what's healthy and why, but focuses mostly on the legal and corporate interests that bastardized it.
