Food Matters

Mark Bittman does not tell us anything new in his book about the connection between our food choices and the environment, but he does write more succinctly than Michael Pollan. I considered the first half of his book a primer in how to eat more consciously, while the second half is comprised of recipes (the oatmeal cookie recipe is completely delicious!). 
The gist of Bittman's book is "Eat less meat, think about what you're buying, and use common sense when it comes to cooking." None of his ideas are too radical, and I already enjoy eating vegetarian food several times a week, so his ideas made sense to me. A lot of the first 100 pages was repetitive, though, so feel free to scan as needed.
