From the Publisher

From the bestselling author of The Omnivore's Dilemma comes In Defence of Food and the Omnivore's Solution for a new way of eating in the New Year...:


1: Don't eat anything your grandmother wouldn't recognise as food


2: Avoid foods containing ingredients you can't pronounce


3: Don't eat anything that won't eventually rot


4: Avoid food products that carry health claims


5: Shop the peripheries of the supermarket; stay out of the middle


6: Better yet, buy your food somewhere else: farmers' markets or the CSA


7: Pay more, eat less


8: Eat a wide diversity of species


9: Eat food from animals that eat grass


10: Cook and, if you can, grow some of your own food


11: Eat meals and eat them only at tables


12: Eat deliberately, with other people whenever possible, and always with pleasure
