Sophie Egan visited Google's office in Kirkland, WA to discuss her book "Devoured: From Chicken Wings to Kale Smoothies: How What We Eat Defines Who We Are".
The popular saying “you are what you eat” could be more true than we know. According to Seattle-based author Sophie Egan, what people choose to eat defines who they are as a person. Her book explores the science behind everything Americans eat. From the popularity of McDonald’s to the more recent gluten-free movement, the book touches on every aspect of truly American cuisine. Why does America have such a high rate of obesity? Why is “having it our way” so unique to the U.S.? Egan, who studied under Michael Pollan, offers insight into these and other questions.
