Book Club Day: Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver

Animal Vegetable Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver
Barbara Kingsolver calls February “Hungry Month” in her memoir  Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. In the midst of winter, most of us would be dining on squash, root vegetables, and canned foods. Thanks (or no thanks) to globalization, we can buy bananas, peaches, and asparagus in February. Kingsolver felt that consuming foods produced and shipped from all over the world was not sustainable nor responsible.
From Left to Write book club members followed Kingsolver and her family as they tried their first year of living eating from their Virginia farm and locally sourced food. Visit our members to join in our lively discussion about the food we eat:
Now that you’ve read From Left to Write members and Stonyfield’s YoGetters posts about Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life, how are you making changes in how you eat? Join us next week as a Stonyfield expert answers questions about eating local and organic foods.

Thanks to our global market, even during the winter we can find our favorite non-seasonal produce in the supermarket. Now that eating locally is trending, should we feel guilty for eating fresh peaches in the dead of winter?

In our second book club selection for February, we’re reading about Barbara Kingsolver’s journey to only live off her land as documented in Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. In more detail:

Author Barbara Kingsolver and her family abandoned the industrial-food pipeline to live a rural life—vowing that, for one year, they’d only buy food raised in their own neighborhood, grow it themselves, or learn to live without it. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is an enthralling narrative that will open your eyes in a hundred new ways to an old truth: You are what you eat.
