94. Fast Food Genocide (Joel Fuhrman)

Screen Shot 2017-11-19 at 9.48.18 PMI had read Eat to Live years ago and did learn from the follow up Fast Food Genocide.  It was written by Joel Fuhrman and I enjoyed the audio version which has inspired me to add more meatless meals to our menu.  We try not to eat too many processed foods in our home but they still sneak in as boxes of cereal, breads and crackers.  The book will encourage me to be more mindful of what I put in the grocery cart, in lunches and on the table.

Fuhrman uses science to tell the sad truth about the dangers of fast food which is so easy to grab when we are on the run.  He offers tips and recipes to stop our addiction to processed food.  He identifies nutrient dense foods and suggests starting by eating a salad every day.  Eating less meat is a helpful strategy as well as being conscious about the added sugar and salt in our meals.

The book was helpful but I found some of the details bordered on lectures including social dynamics of the US which were not as relevant for me.  If you are looking for a book to read to inspire healthier eating, I would suggest his his Eat to Live book.
