The Friday Five 5/18/12
I started reading this book in 2009. I barely got into it and then had to return it to the person I borrowed it from. I have been wanting to get back to it ever since! I don't know if you recall but I have a personal challenge to finish all of my "currently-reading" books on Goodreads before I start any new books. Well this is the 2nd to last one! I got it from the library this week and have until the end of June to finish it! I haven't started it yet, but I'm super excited.
"Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System is a non-fiction book written by Raj Patel. It was published in 2008 by Melville House Publishing. Stuffed and Starved looks at the inequities of the world food system from the beginning to the end of the conventional food chain, from producers to manufacturers and distributors to consumers. According to Naomi Klein, Stuffed & Starved is "One of the most dazzling books I have read in a very long time." From the introduction.
2. What I'm Listening To
3. What I'm Watching
This is an *INCREDIBLE* movie. It is a story of traditional "eskimo" people. It includes a love story, betrayal, magic, hardship and survival. It is spoken completely in the native language so it has subtitles but the story is epic and completely worth watching. I watched this for school but am searching it out to watch it again with Chris. I think it is that good.
4. What I'm Eating
For the past 6-ish weeks I have been on a pretty restrictive diet, excluding sugar, bread, alcohol, etc. That included dairy products. This morning I ate eggs! Oh, I love eggs. I scrambled some eggs on top of some slightly sauteed, torn bok choy. Delicious! In another few weeks I will be able to add more food items back in and I have to say one of the things I am looking forward to the most is peanut butter!
