As you might have noticed, dos senoritas are very interested in food. We like to eat it, buy it, have wine with it. But we always like to be healthy and know what we’re eating.
This little beauty of a book (recommended by our friend, Shri) is a fantastic read. My favorite section of the book includes tips such as avoiding the center of a grocery store, where all the industrialized ‘food-like substances’ are; the fresh food is always around the perimeter. It discusses the rise of the unhealthy Western diet, the major industries that promoted it, and U.S. politics in the ’70s where many laws were changed by the FDA to accommodate imitation, industrialized products, leading to the elimination of real food in our diets.
Corruption, obesity, politics— it doesn’t get any better than this. Bon Appétit!
