Pollan 3.0

Foraging has always been really interesting to me. After reading about Pollan’s adventure in the Forrest I realized I would never want to do that. I like having my food packaged and I have come to accept the mystery of where it came from. As Pollan also said, convenience is so important when it comes […]

Omnivore’s Dilemma-Part III

Part III of The Omnivore’s Dilemma is my personal favorite. I enjoyed reading about his experience Pollan had while foraging and creating his own meal from what he could gather from the environment. He planned to hunt for meat, but he was very unequipped and needed to learn how first. He did not have a hunting […]

Omnivore’s Dilemma Part 3

I ended up accidentally reading this week’s part last week and posting it. So I thought I’d post it twice because it’s still relevant, in addition to a further response. I found Chapter 17, The Ethics of Eating Animals, the most interesting. It brings up numerous questions about the ethics involved in eating meat and how we […]
