Recommended: Real Food
I've read several books and seen some great movies about local eating, so I wasn't sure if this book would have something new to tell me. It turns out that it has - I've really learned a lot. The author explores the worlds of milk, meat, oils (especially interesting for me - I didn't realize the hazards of vegetable oils), and produce. She explains what "real food" looks like, and gives lots of science to back up her ideas. It's helped inspire me to look harder at what I eat, and move my meals closer to real food and away from "fake" foods. I got this book from the library, and I'm sure they have more copies available!
