In the past few years, organic food has moved out of the patchouli-scented aisles of hippie food co-ops and into three-quarters of conventional grocery stores. Concurrent with this growth has been increased consumer awareness of the social and health-related issues around organic eating, independent farming, and food production.

Combining a straight-to-the-point

Another perspective on the subject so well explored by Michael Pollan's 'In Defense of Food.' Same ideas, such as: eat better quality food, probably paying more up front for it, as the benefits to yourself and the planet exceed the nominal cost. My criticism of the book is relatively minor--the authors are a bit disingenuous about their goal to convert people into vegetarians or vegans. Neither word shows up in the index and the subject is never overtly discussed. However, meat (even free-range, humanely raised meat) is only mentioned as a bad thing and there are no suggestions for how to use meat or dairy as a complement to a larger diet of grains, vegetables, and so on.

Pesticides, insecticides, and other chemicals on and seeping into our food supply are explored as possible health robbers. Are we being used as guinea pigs and/or canaries in the coal mine? Do you want to learn more about "body burden" and toxic punch? Well the answers to these questions are within the covers of this revealing book. Grub is a book that is both enlightening and informative. Favorable: has great depth of insight.

Grub really opens your eyes to the reality of what you put into your body. It's information as well as its recipes really helped out a lot as far as my transition to becoming a vegetarian. I took the book with me going to grocery store just to make sure I was buying the right tools for my kitchen. If you are serious about becoming healthy this book will open up your eyes to a whole other world! -Great reference guide.
