What I'm reading....

I'm almost finished reading "The Real Food Revival" and I thought I would share my thoughts and some of the resources that it provides. It has been an interesting read for me. If you are into the 'eat local', 'fresh', 'non-processed' movement that seems to be all the craze these days, I think this book is excellent. It goes into detail on why we should eat organic, non-processed foods and more importantly educates the reader on how to read labels and what those labels mean. Here are some links that it provides that I found to be interesting:

Environmental Working Group: www.ewg.org
Good list of produce that we should strive to eat organic and others that don't really matter.

Local Harvest: www.localharvest.org
Search engine for local produce sources.

Eat Well Guide: www.eatwellguide.org
Search engine for sustainably raised animal products

Hope you guys find it interesting! Sorry Kate, these websites probably don't cover Belgium!

This book looks superb Ashley. Even though its not much use to me so does the local harvest website, I would probably use that alot for seasonal produce etc.
