Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This rousing call to action for healthy, conscious eating is an inspirational primer for those who want to move beyond packaged and processed food toward a more responsible and sustainable way of eating. Many people are learning about the political ramifications of what they eat, but don't know how to change their habits or expand their kitchen repertoire to include meatless dishes. This compendium offers a straightforward overview of the political issues surrounding food, and a culinary toolkit to put principles into practice. Without resorting to faux meat, fake cheese, or obscure ingredients, the recipes focus on fresh, local, minimally processed ingredients that sustain farmers, animals, and the entire food chain. Instead of a rigid set of recipes to be replicated, it offers tips for improvisation, creative thinking in the kitchen, practical suggestions for cooking on a budget, and quick and delicious vegan and vegetarian meal options for anyone who wants to eat fast, tasty, nutritious food every day.

EXCELLENT book with simple reason for eating healthier along with very good recipes. For those who don't want to be preached at, but who simply want a resource, I highly recommend this book. She even provides a pantry list to get you started!

This is an important book in our day and age. It helps explain why we should eat local, and provides tips and recipes for how to do so. Well worth the read.
