Great info here. Not all of it was new, but presented in a way to make you think about food and consumption and how it affects both your health and the health of the planet. A great reference book to have on your shelf! Making headway on my bingo board! #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

This isn‘t a diet book or a cookbook. Egan doesn‘t chastise you for eating meat instead of being vegan. Instead, she lays out options for picking healthy, more socially conscious choices in three key areas: stuff from the ground, stuff from animals, and stuff from factories. Egan is quickly becoming a nonfiction favorite of mine, along with Bee Wilson, Mary Roach, Lucy Worsley, and A.J. Jacobs. This was a digital loan, but I ordered my own copy.
