10 Books That Will Change The Way You Think About Food

By Andrea Howe |

gwyneth-made-me-do-it-logoWhat started out as an experiment to see if I could learn to cook and eat a little better, has turned into a complete change in the way I look at, think about, and consume food. Eating clean, like many health food buzzes and trends, has taken on different meanings for different people. Because of its loose context, some people choose to eliminate carbs, sugars of all kinds, and dairy. For me though, it’s been about searching out the “cleanest” forms of food I can find — free of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides and the like.

With this new way of eating, I’ve ditched my usual fiction fare, and have taken to researching and reading books that will help me on my quest. I asked around, and compiled a list of 10 books that will have you looking at, and thinking about food in a whole new way. And I’m not talking about diet and fad books. These books go beyond calorie counting and food elimination, but cover topics ranging from the importance of sourcing local foods, how our choices effect the environment, and how simple changes may mean a better life for others.
