I read and LOVED Fast Food Nation. It changed the way I eat and the way I view the 'food' the industry puts out. The movie companion book sounds like a great resource and I would love to see the movie if I didn't have to drive 3 hours to do so. Bummer.

First of all, why have I never seen your blog before?

Second of all, I want to win those books because I attended a pre-release screening of Food, Inc. back in April and had to leave the movie early to go to my kids' open house night at school. I even missed a Q&A with the filmmaker, which was even more disappointing.

I like to be aware of what I put in my body, so both of these documentaries are great, eye opening sources of information.

Ulla said...

I would love to see both documentaries! As a grass-fed advocate I think any examination of how we eat is good. Great contest!

Saw Fast Food Nation, and it was intense! Food Inc. is already in the netflix queue...just in case we don't make it to the theater. :) But reading it would be better. The books are always better.

Oooh looks like this is playing near me on 6/19 so I'll have to check it out. I really love reading about food, so I know I'd enjoy the books. I've been meaning to read Fast Food Nation for a while now, but haven't gotten around to it. I absolutely loved Omnivore's Dilemma, & as a result I'm even more interested in learning about what we eat.

Count me in! Won't be playing here though, tleast not for a while.

Judy@nofearentertaining said...

I haven't read Fast Food Nation yet???!!! The documentary sounds interesting, will have to heck and see if it's playing here!

Tracy said...

I saw a preview screening of Food, Inc. a few weeks ago and look forward to discussing it with more people as it goes into wide release. The movie companion book would be a great thing to share as well; I already have a copy of Fast Food Nation but wouldn't mind having another to share!

Fuji Mama said...

I haven't read them yet and they are definitely about topics that I'm concerned about!

Claire said...

The film of Fast Food Nation put me off my appetite for weeks - but i think it was an important shift in the way I think about food. I think Food, Inc. will have a similar effect.

The Food Hunter said...

I can't wait to see this movie and I would love to read either of those two books. I'm trying my best to educate myself on what's going on in the food world. Thanks!

Maria said...

I really want to see Food, Inc. So far I can't find a show time in my area, but hopefully soon! I love learning about the food industry, so many terrible/wrong doings. It is important for everyone to be educated about food issues! I try to keep myself up to date so I can make wise and healthy food decisions.

Kristen said...

These would be great tools to help educate people in my community. I live in rural America, in a small college town, and the majority of the people here don't get why they are getting fat!

Sarah said...

I'm always looking for new reading material, particulary anything with a foodie twist! I'm a trivia nut too so they'd be great.

Cheesy said...

You know if I possess one or two more cookbooks I think I will Qualify for a shiny new bookcase!

I'm running the same giveaway on my blog; I want to win because I haven't read the companion book to Food, Inc., but I can't enter my own contest!
