An independent journalist and nutrition expert, Lawless is emerging as the voice of a new generation of food thinkers. After years of "eat this, not that" advice from doctors, journalists, and food faddists, she offers something completely different. Lawless presents a comprehensive explanation of the problem—going beyond nutrition to issues of food choice, class, race, and gender—and provides a sound and simple philosophy of eating, which she calls the "Whole Egg Theory."
“We take “food” for granted. But Kristin Lawless has done a thorough job of describing how so much of what we eat doesn’t qualify as “food” - and the terrible, sometimes catastrophic effects that transition has had (and will have) on our bodies and our planet. A stirring call to action to improve the awareness and ultimately health of all of us. ”— Mark Bittman, author of How to Cook Everything
"Revelatory on every page and a delight to read Formerly Known as Food is both a powerful expose and a passionate manifesto. The industrial food system is placing us all, the living and the yet unborn, in mortal peril. In her meticulous autopsy of the way we eat today, Kristin Lawless has provided a public service. Reading Formerly Known as Food is a matter of life and death." — Steve Fraser, author of Class Matters: The Strange Career of an American Delusion
“You better read this book before you put another bite of food in your or your kids’ mouths!” — Laurie David, Academy Award winning producer of An Inconvenient Truth and Fed Up
"This groundbreaking book will get you thinking differently about how you nourish yourself and your family, and will inspire you to advocate for change." — Mary Esther Malloy, MA, founder of Mindful Birth
