Food is sacred!,
This review is from: The Eco-Foods Guide: What's Good for the Earth is Good for You! (Paperback)
Interested in sustainable agriculture? Look no further. In "The Eco-Foods Guide", Cynthia Barstow helps us navigate the complex issues surrounding food security and in clear, accessible language illustrates how our everyday food choices impact the planet. That said, this book, which is written in a friendly, conversational voice, is anything but a dry read. In fact, it's really rather fun. (Granted I am extremely passionate about food politics!) As a long-time natural foodist and someone with a lot of experience working in the field of organic foods, I highly recommend this guide. It's very comprehensive and covers everything from biodynamic farming to community supported agriculture to why you should only buy shade-grown, fair trade, organic coffee. It also discusses the grave environmental dangers of biotechnology. At the risk of sounding new-agey, I must also agree with the underlying spiritual message of this book. Eating local, seasonal, organic food really does help you re-connect with the earth. It's time we once again remember that food is holy! As all of life is interconnected, what's good for the earth is good for you!
