Mark Bittman – Changing How We Eat: 20 Minutes Well Worth Watching

Posted by CMH Gourmand on October 27, 2008

OK, 20 minutes is a lot of time. When this video was forwarded to me months ago I set it aside on my to do list and it lingered there for a long time. Mark Bittman is a food writer for the New York Times and he writes good stuff.

This video is entertaining, informative, and in a very eloquent way condenses the reasons why we need to change the way we eat – for ourselves, our society, and our planet. This is not preachy or extreme tree hugging or anything that is not well based in solid research.

This video condenses into 20 minutes several books, documentaries, and articles I have read about over the last year on: American food history (United States of Arugula), economics of our food industry (King Corn, In Defense of Food), buying local (Independent America), and countless other sources.

So – watch and enjoy. How we eat needs to change. And that change can start now.
