|About the Book|
Havent finished it - mostly because its one of those books you dont read front-to-back, but also because its almost twenty years old. Very good, though! I appreciate the authors frankness and knowledge about nutrition and some history around food. Didnt realize how many athletes eat a vegetarian diet. I also learned that meat-eating is an expensive way to get protein and (for the most part) humans havent eaten much of it in the past. Many people get by just fine without consuming animal flesh - and may be healthier for it. But thats all Ill say for now. Check out The Omnivores Dilemma (which isnt about vegetarianism, by the way) if youre looking for an awesome book about food in America. I learned a ton and enjoyed the read.
