1/13/12: Eating Ethically

Salt Lake City, UT – It seems eating has come to be as much about guilt as it is about nutrition and pleasure. But what does it mean to be a virtuous eater? Food writer Alan Richman decided to find out. For thirty days, he set off on what he calls a "journey of ethical enlightenment." He visited farms and restaurants and ate not just for taste, but with a conscience. Tuesday, Richman joins Doug to talk about his trip and about his 10 Commandments of Ethical Eating.

  • Read Alan Richman's Eat No Evil in July's GQ Magazine.
