Diet For A Small Planet
by the Editors
First published in 1971, Diet for a Small Planet is to sustainable food, what Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring is to the environmental movement. Smart, prescient and graciously written, France Moore Lappé is a philosopher of activism and cookery. There are no pretty pictures or beauty shots to hide behind in this cookbook. This is an early call to conscious eating intertwined with solid, interesting disclosures about the troubling state of our country’s food system, the dire health and environmental consequences of a meat-burdened diet, and what you can do about it by the food choices you make every day for yourself and your family.
