A Natural History of Four Meals The question of what to eat for dinner has become more complicated than ever. In the 21st century, we are faced with what anthropologists call, the omnivore’s dilemma. Back in the hunter-gatherer days, humans had to learn what was safe and what wasn’t. For example, we now know which mushrooms to avoid and which berries we can enjoy. Now with the evergrowing fast-food industry, we once again have to worry about which tasty foods might kill us. As you stroll the shelves of the supermarket, you are met with countless foods, all of which have different nutritional values. How do you know what to choose? What should you avoid? Should we be spending more on food? Or less? Even more, we’ve also begun to realize that our food choices affect more than just our health, they also affect the health of the environment. What we put into our bodies affects more than we realize, and we are only just beginning to recognize the profound consequences of our simple everyday food choices. So if you’re looking for a fresh perspective on the ordinary question, “What should we have for dinner?” then The Omnivore’s Dilemma is for you.
