The Omnivore’s Dilemma

I’ve just finished reading The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan and its sequel, In Defense of Food.  It’s been a long time since I’ve read anything so inspiring and, in my opinion, a must-read for anyone who cares about food, cooking, nutrition, or contributing to a better world.

Looking forward to your feedback and your own experiences.
