"What should we eat for dinner?" With so many options; organic, fast food, Chinese, Mexican, etc. it's often difficult to make up your mind. This is essentially the basis of what can be described as America's eating disorder. The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan explores the vast amount of potential foods nature has to offer, what foods might kill us, the environmental impact, and our place in the food chain...eating in America.Before I read this book I considered myself to be a rather healthy eater (minus the occasional rushed meal induced by traveling). I shop at the local health food store and farmers markets, grow my own herbs, and eat fast food (In and Out) only a couple times a year. I hadn't thought much about the packaging and verbiage behind my organic milk and how much it promises. I admit I envisioned a lush pasture of green grass with chickens happily clucking when I bought my "free range" chicken and passed by the microwaveable dinners at whole foods without much thought (little did I know).After reading this book I have a much better understanding behind my chicken lettuce wraps I ate for dinner tonight. I appreciate my food more and have a realistic vision of where that food came from. I find myself analyzing my meals to every last ingredient and often too deeply, but it's important to me. After all, you are what you eat.
