The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan
Do you know exactly where your food comes from?? I know this is a skincare resource website – but diet is so intimately connected to skincare, I often read and recommend books that give a better understanding of internal health. I actually read this book on my honeymoon…I know – nerd alert! Honestly, though, it was so fascinating, it made a great beach read! Pollan’s journalistic background gives the book an investigative reporter’s perspective that isn’t as much preaching or editorial as it is just plain eye opening. He follows three meals all the way back to their source, and in the process tells their stories. The American farming industry is in crisis!! Read this book to find out why. After you finish it, I promise that you will be asking your local grocery-store butcher more questions, and reading more product labels that EVER before!
