Food Books / Clean Eating
« on: January 12, 2018, 12:32:00 PM »
We've been changing our diets slightly and reading up on food. Anyone else?

I just downloaded a copy of Real Food / Fake Food by Larry Olmstead. It was free on Amazon Prime. Has anyone else read the book? Are there any similar books you've read that have changed the way you buy food or cook for yourself?

It's something of a culinary guidebook with interesting details about certain sectors of the food industry. For example, the seafood industry has plenty of mislabeled fish and false advertising. I don't eat much fish but it was rather eye-opening. He discusses the Monterrey Bay Aquarium's healthy ocean guide to seafood, which I thought was interesting. We're going to take the list to our local supermarket and see what we can find.

Everything Michael Pollan writes is golden but you have to start with An Omnivore’s Dilemma first - that’s a classic.

Cooked is good too. There’s a Netflix documentary version of it which is jaw-droppingly beautiful. Most of the actual content is repeated from Omnivore, though.
