Diet for a small planet / Frances Moore Lappé ; illustrations by Aimée Mazara.

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


"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"-- Provided by publisher.
