The Omnivores Dilemma

The Omnivores Dilemma

Michael Pollan tells a compelling story about our current food system and the links between our society, our environment, and our food. Pollan analyzes the history of big farms in America and how it has led to the current food crisis we have today, where real, fresh food can be difficult to come by. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in food systems and the issues of our current food system along with many suggestions for alternatives (note: its not all about the fancy labels and certifications but about connections with farmers and using resources appropriately.)
