Here's a listing of the books that have appeared in the "What we're reading section on the home page.
Nina Planck grew up in Virginia selling vegetables at farmers' markets and later created the first farmers' markets in London, and ran the Greenmarkets in New York. Now she's written a fabulous book that rebuts a multitude of dietary fads and calls for a return to old-fashioned foods. She says that our bodies are suffering more from how foods are grown and processed than by any of the supposed culprits like dairy and meat. And she backs it all up with solid research. A great read, and an important companion to Michael Pollan's books Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food.
