Is organic really worth it? Are eggs OK to eat? If so, which ones are best for you and for the chicken? What about farmed salmon, soy milk, sugar, gluten, fermented foods, coconut oil, almonds? Thumbs-up, thumbs-down, or somewhere in between?

Sophie Egan, a food systems consultant and expert on food’s impact on human and environmental health, offers strategies to navigate the bewildering world of food. Being a conscious eater, says Egan, isn’t about diets, fads, or hard-and-fast rules. It’s about having straightforward, accurate information to make smart, thoughtful choices amid the chaos of conflicting news and marketing hype. She offers a practical guide to everyday eating that’s good for you, good for others, and good for the planet.  

Egan’s 2020 book How to Be a Conscious Eater was named one of Bon Appétit’s Favorite New Books for Climate-Friendly Cooking and Life.
