COOKING / Health & Healing / General
SOCIAL SCIENCE / Agriculture & Food (see also POLITICAL SCIENCE / Public Policy / Agriculture & Food Policy)
A lively, surprising, and necessary guide to navigating our food choices—is a certain food OK for your health? OK for the environment? How do I know if the people who grow or create it are fairly treated?—by an expert in public health from the Culinary Institute of America.

“The clearest, most useful food book I own. Thank you, Sophie, from my stomach, farm animals everywhere, and my great-great-grandchildren.”
—A.J. Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author

“Thought-provoking… Egan displays a talent for making the environmental complexities of food choices comprehensible… [A] thorough primer to combining health consciousness and environmental responsibility.” – Publishers Weekly starred review
