Food Matters by Mark Bittman
Bittman's book is about choosing food consciously, with both your own health and the health of our planet in mind. The themes and tone are similar to The Omnivore's Dilemma and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, but this is a much shorter book. The last half is all recipes, to demonstrate that this way of eating is not about sacrificing taste. If you're interested in a brief overview of the advantages of eating minimally processed, locally grown food, this book is a good starting point. And the recipes look pretty yummy.
