I read this for a sociology class in college, and it absolutely made me think:
The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan
I don’t read non-fiction very often, but I really, really enjoyed this one— Michael Pollan has a very readable conversational tone. Before I read this, I didn’t exactly have an opinion on food politics, but this book was definitely eye-opening. It may be a tiny bit out of date by now; I know the food industry has been through a lot of changes in the past few years. But this book helped me to become way more conscious of what I eat, not only regarding the way it affects my body, but the way it affects the world around me, too. I’d recommend it as both an enjoyable and informational read.
