I bought this book while I was in Germany in March. Its title is a pun. "Anständig" means "decent" or "respectable" -- upstanding. When put together with the verb "essen" it means as much as "a decent" as in full/square meal. The author, whose writing style is very funny in a dry, self-deprecating way, tested different kinds of diet regimes for months at a time--being a locavore, a vegetarian, a vegan even a raw-foodist. I've only read the beginning because I have two books I want to finish before I start it, but I'm looking forward to it.
