Good recommendartion's. Bass is a given. The other two, I had to look up, but yes, I agree. Bittman has had several showson PBS Television in addition to being the "Food Guru" over at the NYT. Must have been plugging the book the other day when he showed up on the Today show. Looks like he has dropped quite a few lbs, and was showing some stuff from the book. All good, simple, to the point recipe's with health concerns in mind, and all using natural foods.

I've seen Michael Pollan's name quite a bit lately. His book, "The Omnivore's Dilemma" is getting good reviews among the paleo crowd.

His new book, "In Defense of Food" hit #1 on the NY Time list.

Check out this list from Crossfit: http://crossfitvirtuosity.com/blogs/art ... tion-books

I've read both "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "In Defense of Food."

The Omnivore's Dilemma is the better of the two, really, because it gives you a good look inside factory farming, organic foods, a real family farm, etc.

They're well-researched and well-written; I'd recommend either of them to anyone interested in eating healthier. Especially if you eat lots of meat and eggs or eat organic veggies, it's worth finding out what's involved in the process of making them.

I no longer question why it's worth spending a little bit more to get eggs from a local farm store (which in turn gets them from NJ farmers) instead of getting the cheap eggs at WalMart. Or spending extra on grass-fed meats.

Thank you for this interesting book recommendations. I already heard many good things about Michael Pollan's book "The Omnivore's Dilemma". I will definitely read this certain book prospectively. Besides this I have already read Mark Bittman's "Food Matters" and I really liked it. Prospectively I will definitely read a book written by Clarence Bass. Hopefully I will like it as much as Michael Pollan's book.
