What am I giving my sister?

Discussion by: justinrodriguez on Wed, 2016-06-22 09:47 with 0 comments

I read parts of Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Reading about food led me to track my own food. Some things I’ve eaten are cereal, chicken, candy, fruits.

One part of the book that stood out for me is the chapter on chicken nuggets. Page 119 says “Chicken Mcnugget contain nearly twice as much fat as a regular hamburger.’’ This quote means to me that a chicken nugget from McDonald's, that I always buy for my sister is not 100% chicken. This quote make me think about the food that my sister and I eat.

How can a book change my life?

I just started reading the book “the Omnivore’s Dilemma” by “Michael Pollan, and my first impression is how can this book change my life?

One question I have is how can this book make people lose weight? What I want the author to explain is how the book changes the way people think? This is important because he said the book has made people aware of how their food choices affect the environment and animals.
