The green food bible

£3.99

Product description

Not long ago it was considered fairly radical to buy organic produce, and the phrase 'ethical food' was almost unheard of. Today, millions of us are trying to improve our lives, our health - and the planet - by eating not only organic, healthy, additive-free food, but also food that has been produced responsibly. Yet despite this recent switch in emphasis, many of us still have concerns about what we are really buying and eating, and where our food has come from. And while ethical eating may have started with a decision to buy organic food, today the concept of 'green food' embraces so many other concerns, including how far our food has travelled before it reaches us, seasonal eating, free trade, fair trade, slow food, wholefoods, and food that doesn't harm the planet or cause distress to animals. With politicians, farmers, retailers, food manufacturers and the media often providing conflicting information, it's little wonder that these issues become entangled in a web of misinformation and confusion which leads to even more uncertainty and doubt.THE GREEN FOOD BIBLE aims to offer consumers a guiding hand through the complicated maze that is eating today. Fully illustrated throughtout, it's packed with fascinating information, including ...* The truth behind the food industry's advertising, jargon and hype * A seasonal food chart to help you to eat the right foods at the right time of year, plus a range of delicious, easy-to-follow recipes...* An A-Z guide to over 100 key healthy foods - and advice on what to look out for, and what to avoid, when shopping for them... * A hands-on guide to growing your own organic fruits and vegetables - and you won't need an allotment!Practical, comprehensive, and based on the very latest research, The Green Food Bible will enable consumers everywhere to make confident, informed choices about buying and eating the right food for their health and the future.
