As part of my review of The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, book 40 of 52, I wrote about how I passed out during a wedding because of poor nutrition and dehydration. I knew I looked bad after it happened — members of the bridal party told me I turned white — but now I have proof.
Picture before passing out.
That second picture is frightening. I look like a corpse.
Omnivore’s Dilemma is probably the book I’ve talked about the most from this series. I think of it whenever I make food choices, and when I see food prices skyrocket. It shows how much industrially produced food is reliant on oil. It makes me sick (though not enough to pass out).
Anyway, that’s my soapbox for the day.
