My latest review is up on VegBooks.org! The Bugabees – Friends With Food Allergies (click the link for my review) by Amy Recob and 64 Colors. It ended up being a pretty personal review but I think it has information that I was curious about when I purchased the book. I have some reservations but it has been popular with E. I teared up the first time I read it because I thought of all the situations where she won’t be able to eat like her friends but I think we really have to divorce ourselves from associating food with emotions, positive or negative.
A great read, by the way, that covers the emotional and social aspects of food is Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer (amazon affiliate link). I couldn’t put it down, even though it is non-fiction it is that good. Brilliant stuff, makes me wish I was a writer. Another non-fiction book I couldn’t put down is The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins (amazon affiliate link), I don’t mean to go off topic but it came to mind and it is brilliant. Some slow bits but I could follow most of the science and it is my favorite by Dawkins. I kept stopping to tell my husband snippets from both books, the only downside is that sometimes when I do that he remarks that he doesn’t need to read the book because I already told him the good stuff.
