Melanie Warner - Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal

Historic LoDo: Former New York Times business reporter and mother Melanie Warner will discuss and sign her new book Pandora’s Lunchbox: How Processed Food Took Over the American Meal (Scribner). From breakfast cereal to chicken subs to nutrition bars, processed foods account for roughly 70 percent of our nation’s calories. Despite the growing presence of farmers’ markets and organic produce, strange food additives are nearly impossible to avoid. Combining meticulous research, vivid writing, and cultural analysis, Warner looks at how decades of food science have resulted in the cheapest, most abundant, most addictive, and most nutritionally devastating food in the world, and she uncovers startling evidence about the profound health implications of the packaged and fast foods that we eat on a daily basis.
