The rough guide to food

Reeve, K and Miller, G (2009) The rough guide to food. Rough Guides, London. ISBN 9781848360013


Attention food lovers - The Rough Guide to Food is here to show you that food can be good for you, good for the planet and taste great, all at the same time! Navigating through the never-ending food maze, the guide asks the hard-boiled questions no one else can answer: "Is organic really better for you?" and "what constitutes a healthy diet?". The guide contains shocking facts and figures about our food options and looks at the entire cycle of food from the politics of importing and exporting to genetic modifications, and from pesticide free organic farms to the ethically questionable practices of the Big Four supermarkets. With a plethora of good honest advice and the shattering of harmful myths, the guide also decodes those grub-related catch words like organic, local, wholefoods, vegetarian, vegan, food-intolerance, Fairtrade, sustainability and the worst of all - diet! If you eat food, or are considering eating food, then The Rough Guide to Food can make your experience both pleasurable and nutritional, offering simple choices and good advice, as well as practical tips to eating and shopping that fit with your lifestyle and budget - without resorting to overindulgence, or self-denial!
