We all eat – that makes us all experts on eating, doesn’t it? Yet dozens of times a day we struggle with tough decisions about not only what to eat (are eggs really as bad for us as smoking a pack of cigarettes?) but also how much (those low-fat diets don’t always shed pounds). Clearly, we live in a culture awash with advice on nutrition and eating—even during the holidays. Gigi Berardi’s FoodWISE instead, gives us a WISE view of food: Whole, Informed, Sustainable, and Experienced.
Gigi Berardi is a professor at Western Washington University and free-lance writer. She maintains the popular food blog “FoodWISE” and “Food and Resilience” vlog, and has written numerous articles for general and scientific audiences alike. Her work has appeared in outlets including the LA Times and BioScience among others, and her public radio features (for KSKA, Anchorage, Alaska) have been recognized by the Society of Professional Journalists. Her most recent book, FoodWISE, has been endorsed by over 30 food thought-leaders (including food journalists Michael Pollan and Pulitzer awardee Michael Moss) and has been listed as one of “19 reads that inspire us and challenge us to be better activists, environmentalists, cooks, policymakers, protectors of the planet, farmers, supporters of pollinators and advocates for a better food system” (Forbes.com). In September, it received a silver medal, Living Now Book Awards.
