Vegan, omnivore, keto what we eat is essential to our culture, health, environment and identity. It should be no surprise that we care deeply about our food choices. But in todays grocery, those choices can be overwhelming and we use shorthand to make decisions. Daniel Westcott, a former organic farmer and a current PhD student at UC Berkeley will try to unpack the labels and offer some insight about tricky topics like industrialized food, monoculture, and GMOs.
