DALLAS Mark Bittman, New York Times lead food writer, blogger, and author is coming to Temple Emanu-El in Dallas on May 10 to discuss the topic "Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating." It'll be the focus of the Rabbi David Lefkowitz Memorial Lecture at 7:30 p.m. in the Olan Sanctuary; a reception and book signing will follow the lecture, which is free and open to the public.
Bittman's talk will illustrate the vital links between our diet, our health, and climate change. On the New York Times website, he's been heroically writing abouat the overproduction and overconsumption of meat, simple carbohydrates, and junk food, and looking at the toll it takes on our bodies and the planet.
By eating fewer animal products and nutritionally worthless food, he's lost 35 pounds, solved health problems, and reduced his personal impact on the environment. The steps he proposes include eating less meat, and none before 6 p.m.
