Today is all about education.  Today, you're going to make the commitment to do some reading on food - including recipes -, nutrition, or the history of the food system in the US.  I have a few recommendations, but I fully acknowledge that they are a bit skewed in direction of "processed food and factory farming is bad".  If you have any suggestions that you think deserves a look, please leave a comment because I am up for reading anything!

The links below are for Amazon*, but I highly recommend getting any book from the library first to test it out for yourself!

The Omnivore's Dilemma
Food Rules: An Eater's Manual (follow up to The Omnivore's Dilemma
Salt, Sugar, Fat: How the Food Giants Hooked Us (I just started reading this on vacation and granted, I'm not done with it, but I love it so far!)
The Homemade Pantry
Super Natural Foods Every Day
Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100-Mile Diet
Animal, Vegetable, Miracle
The Art of Simple Food
Peas and Thank You (while I don't follow a vegan diet, and think that things like vegan "margarine" is actually probably pretty terrible for you, I like this book, and adapt the recipes to use non-vegan ingredients.

Happy reading!
