The Omnivore's Dilemma

If we are what we eat, most of us are processed, fake and unhealthy. Follow Michael Pollan's food journey to discover the real story behind the packaged food on our supermarket shelves.

Food is our most direct connection to the earth, but how much do we really know about what we eat? Most of us don't think too carefully about how our food gets to our table, and if we did know we would probably have a difficult time digesting it. In The Omnivore's Dilemma, Michael Pollan explores the various food chains available to us in the West today, and encourages us to ask more questions about where our food comes from.

You will learn:

  • Why the hunter-gatherer lifestyle just isn't a realistic option for most of us
  • Why organic produce may not be all it's cracked up to be
  • What we can learn from small organic producers.
