Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
Last year the great food read was Omnivore's Dilemma. This year it is Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. If you start reading now, she'll help you understand exactly why you should love eating a ton of leafy greens, a few early shoots of brocolli and cauliflower, snap peas, etc. (that is, if you live up here somewhere near Wisconsin). The narrative is compelling. It's the best thing I've read in a long time that tells a story AND functions as a how to to better gardening, cooking, and living.
