Protest Kitchen is an empowering guide to food and lifestyle choices that anyone can make for positive change in the face of the profound challenges of our time.
Our food choices have much more of an impact than most people imagine. They not only affect our personal health and the environment, but are also tied to issues of justice, misogyny, national security, and human rights.
Written by Carol J. Adams, a leading feminist thinker, animal rights activist, and author of The Sexual Politics of Meat, and Virginia Messina, a dietitian and public health nutritionist specializing in vegan nutrition, Protest Kitchen is the first book to explore the ways in which a more plant-based diet challenges regressive politics and fuels the resistance.
Protest Kitchen is a provocative and practical resource for hope and healing, featuring over 50 vegan recipes (with alternatives for "aspiring vegans") along with practical daily actions such as:
- Substitute cow's milk in your coffee and cereal for any of a variety of delicious non-dairy milks. This will help lower the release of methane gas that contributes to global warming
- Use a smartphone app when buying chocolate to avoid supporting African farmers who use child-labor, even child slavery, to supply cacao beans to the food industry
- Make your own cleanings supplies and wood polish; it's frugal and avoids reliance on products that may be tested on animals
