The NNLM Reading Club in March examines the food we eat and all the factors that make it bad, good or better for us.

The Future of Nutrition by T. Colin Campbell l How to Eat by Mark Bittman & David L. Katz l Resetting the Table by Robert Paarlberg

T. Colin Campbell, whose previous books include best-seller The China Study, covers the nutrition industry and its impact on both our health and the practice of science with The Future of Nutrition. In How to Eat: All Your Food and Diet Questions Answered, Mark Bittman and David Katz, M.D., use a Q&A format to dispense advice on topics such as dietary patterns and lifestyle; specific diets like the Mediterranean diet, intermittent fasting and the keto diet; and various foods such as grains, meat, dairy and alcohol. Finally, Robert Paarlberg, an associate at Harvard’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, contradicts some of the conventional wisdom surrounding things like organic foods and those neighborhoods and communities known as food deserts. He looks for solutions to food problems that can make sense for farmers and consumers alike in Resetting the Table: Straight Talk about the Food We Grow and Eat.

No matter what fare typically gets you through your day, we invite you to fortify your knowledge diet with these Reading Club selections. Enjoy!
