"You are what you eat, but you are what you eat eats, too." - Pollan
What should we have for dinner? Ten years ago, Michael Pollan confronted this question and, with The Omnivore’s Dilemma, his eye-opening exploration of our food choices, demonstrated that how we answer it today may determine not only our health but our survival as a species. In the years since, Pollan’s examination has changed the way Americans think about food. Bringing wide attention to the little-known but vitally important dimensions of food and agriculture in America, Pollan launched a national conversation about what we eat and the profound consequences that even the simplest everyday food choices have on both ourselves and the natural world.
