What should we have for dinner? When you can eat just about anything nature (or the supermarket) has to offer, deciding what you should eat will inevitably stir anxiety, especially when some of the foods might shorten your life. Today, buffeted by one food fad after another, America is suffering from a national eating disorder. As the cornucopia of the modern American supermarket and fast food outlet confronts us with a bewildering and treacherous landscape, what's at stake becomes not only our own and our children's health, but the health of the environment that sustains life on earth. Pollan follows each of the food chains--industrial food, organic or alternative food, and food we forage ourselves--from the source to the final meal, always emphasizing our coevolutionary relationship with the handful of plant and animal species we depend on. The surprising answers Pollan offers have profound political, economic, psychological, and even moral implications for all of us.--From publisher description.… (mere)

The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals af Michael POLLAN (2006)

  1. 120
    In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto af Michael Pollan (marzipanz, chrisharpe)
    chrisharpe: Less of a narrative than "The Omnivore's Dilemma", "In Defense of Food" is a succinct argument for considering what we eat, and includes potted advice for consumers who prefer a set of simple rules for eating. As the title suggests, this is perhaps the better analysis of the way the food industry affects the eater and what we can do about it.… (mere)

    Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life af Barbara Kingsolver (heidialice, lorax)
    lorax: More thoughtful and personal than Omnivore's Dilemma, in many ways it picks up where Pollan leaves off.

And then there was that one time my husband and I gave up corn.

We didn't. :)

*The tone gets slightly pretentious at the end. And it could have been shortened without ruination. ( )

Especially good on apples. Always like Michael Pollan.

I learned so much from this book and I want everyone to read it. ( )

I’m plagiarizing Emily’s review, but as she said, the quote from the end of the book does summarize the whole thing quite nicely - "But imagine for a moment if we once again knew...these few unremarkable things: What it is we're eating. Where it came from. How it found its way to our table. And what, in a true accounting, it really cost."

It isn’t an easy subject to write about and keep interesting, but the author did a good job of it. We all have to eat, and rarely think much about how the food got to us. And as a city kid, I found I learned a lot about the cattle and feed industry, farm subsidies, and the big business of farming. It was a much more interesting read than I expected.

Non-fiction. Made me obsessed with corn/corn products for a while (nearly everything we eat contains corn in some form or other). Loads of interesting information about our food processing chains. A worthwhile read, even if it took me several months to actually get through it. ( )

But for Pollan, the final outcome is less important than the meal's journey from the soil to the plate. His supermeticulous reporting is the book's strength — you're not likely to get a better explanation of exactly where your food comes from.
