Title: Food Matters by Mark Bittman
Category: Nonfiction, Health, Cooking
Review: Mark Bittman is a favorite author of mine. He has written several cookbooks, one which I am working on and hoping to finish by the end of this month. Anyway, I got this book at the library. I had been wanting to read it, but didn’t want to spend the money in case I didn’t like it. This book is not your typical diet or health book. Mark Bittman talks about the food industry and the toll it has taken on us, the American people. It really opened my eyes. Some things I did know, but others I did not. He does not promote a diet plan. He does give meal plans and provides recipes, but he is not trying to market a diet plan for the consumer. He wants people to be more conscious of what they are eating and to understand that what we put in our mouth not only affects us, but the world around us. I loved this book and I recommend you read it. It will open your eyes.
