Tomatoland, by Barry Estabrook, isn’t a book you read and file away in your library. It’s the type of book that reminds you to think about what you put in your grocery cart every time you see fruits and vegetables in the grocery store.
I reviewed the book for Natural Awakenings magazine’s September 2011 issue and I can’t stop thinking about it. I want to do something and I keep trying to think of how I can make a difference in my family’s food preparation. We try to buy as much as we can at the farmer’s market and we make a large percentage of our meals at home so we can eat healthier but these tomatoes are haunting me!
How do you ensure the food you eat is not only healthy for you but not harming people or the environment in its farming process or production?
