Diet for a small planet

Lappé, Frances Moore (author.). Mazara, Aimée, (illustrator.).


Summary: "Discover the eating plan that revolutionized the way Americans think about their meals, updated for its fiftieth anniversary with new recipes for the modern meatless chef. "In the . . . years since the publication of Diet for a Small Planet, a movement dedicated to the reform of the food system has taken root in America. Lappé's groundbreaking book connected the dots between something as ordinary and all-American as a hamburger and the environmental crisis, as well as world hunger." --Michael Pollan. Upon its release in 1971, Diet for a Small Planet was truly groundbreaking. This extraordinary book taught America the social and personal significance of a new way of eating : environmental vegetarianism. World hunger was not a matter of lack of food, it argued, but of lack of justice in our food systems. Half a century later, it is still a complete guide for eating well in the Twenty-First century. Sharing her personal evolution and how this revolutionary vegetarian-focused book changed her own life, world-renowned food expert Frances Moore Lappé offers a fascinating philosophy on changing yourself--and the world--by changing the way you eat. This edition features 85 modern meatless recipes, including more than a dozen new entries by celebrity chefs such as Mark Bittman, Padma Lakshmi, Alice Waters, José Andrés, Bryant Terry, Mollie Katzen, and Sean Sherman"--
