Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kinsolver
"This is the story of a year in which we made every attempt to feed ourselves animals and vegetables whose provenance we really knew . . . and of how our family was changed by our first year of deliberately eating food produced from the same place where we worked, went to school, loved our neighbors, drank the water, and breathed the air." -excertp
This book set me on our current course of farming. --Brad
The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan
This is a real good explanation of our food system and of many of the foods we eat.
Real Food by Nana Planck
Nina explains what to eat and why for everyone from age zero to 100. Learn why traditional foods such as butter are best and industrial foods such as corn oil and fake foods made with soy are the real culprits in the trio of nutrition-related diseases: obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Praise the lard. And vegetables, too. --From the author's website.
