Vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, carnivore-whatever you are, the more you learn about your eating habits, where your food comes and how your diet affects your body, environment and the economy, the better off you are!
We are both avid readers, and some of our favorite books revolve around what we eat and how we eat and some worthwhile literature has converted us from meat-eaters to meat-free. Here are some of our favorite food-orientated books in our library!
