Most Americans now have more choices when it comes to food than any other group of people in the history of the world. We are so, so lucky to live in a time and place when we get to choose between feasting on fresh vegetables from the farmer’s market… and ordering a meat lover’s pizza delivered right to our door.

With such a ridiculous abundance of options, how do we actually decide what’s for dinner?

On Why We Eat What We Eat, host Cathy Erway investigates the unseen forces that shape our eating habits. We’ll tackle a kale conspiracy, how to get your kids to quit being so picky, visiting the epicenter of the potluck scene, and more.

Why we eat what we eat

What an awesome fun, insightful, podcast on such a familiar topic ! We all do it but
this was a new way to see it from the potluck dinner to the hidden junk food wrappers ... Bravo to Blue Apron and Gimlet !

Second helping please!

There are enough food podcasts and not enough why these things happen. As MA in sustainable communities I study why these things happen and I’m enticed by this show!
