Omnivore’s Dilemma

Part three of Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma deals with obtaining food for a supper directly from nature.  The three previous meals made by Pollan were from McDonald’s, Whole Foods, and local farms.  The fourth and final meal Pollan made was from products that he obtained from the forest and his garden.  This meal reminded me a lot of the life that Novella Carpenter lived for a month in Oakland.  Pollan argues that living and eating this is not practical in the future, but could help people appreciate their food more than they do now.  Especially when it comes to killing an animal.  There is much more appreciation and food for thought when the objects of supper were slaughter by the eater.  Becoming a conscious eater is what Pollan wants us to become instead of eating prepared food.
