Steenblik reflects on the Mormon ethics of food. She examines Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four meals, which identifies major problems caused by the recently emergent food industry and the negative effects they have on the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities, and the environments. Pollan's observations mirror those of American poet-prophet Wendell Berry. Both highlight losses associated with the demise of independent, small-farm agricultures. Furthermore, Steenblik concludes that implementing the Mormon food ethic of eating fruits and herbs in their season, eating meat sparingly and with great gratitude, growing some of one's own food, and sharing with others, restores memory and fulfills what Pollan only imagines in his book.
