"Well researched, user-friendly and highly pertinent source like none other. The essential, entirely original in its presentation and highly recommended, fact-focused complement to Bittmans' How to Cook Everything Vegetarian . What is so remarkable, and completely novel, about this book . . . is the accompanying detailed comparison of environmental footprint, in terms of averted water use, manure runoff and greenhouse gas emissions, of the vegan and non-vegan versions of each recipe." Gidon Eshel, Research Professor of Environmental Physics at Bard College ."If we are to create a livable future on this planet, we will need to successfully lessen the demand for meat. and if we do that, it will be because of people like Patricia Tallman, and thanks to those people who read and heed her book." John Robbins, author of Diet For A New America .". . . Please read this fascinating and informative guide. let Patricia Tallman's guidance lead the way." Neal Barnard, MD, Adjunct Associate Professor at George Washington University's School of Medicine; President of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine .Are you an environmentalist-championing wise water usage, clean oceans, and a reduction in greenhouse gases? Are you interested in permanent weight loss, disease prevention, and optimal nutrition? This book demonstrates how a plant-based diet directly addresses all these concerns. Dr. Patricia Tallman explains why the most effective action you can take to mitigate climate change, water pollution, rainforest destruction, and water shortages also will enable you to combat diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.

Several chapters are devoted to illustrating the profound environmental savings that would result from leaving meat and dairy off your menu. For instance, simply replacing beef in a Sloppy Joes recipe with a plant-based protein generates the following savings per serving: 1,670 liters (441 US gal) of water; 4.4 kg (9.7 pounds) of manure; and enough greenhouse gas to drive 10.7 km (6.7 miles)!

Equally astonishing, a plant-based version of this traditional dish results in these nutritional benefits 25 percent fewer calories, 50 percent less total fat, eliminating 8 grams of saturated fat and all 80 mg of cholesterol, yet providing virtually the same amount of protein and iron.

By choosing tasty, nutritious recipes like those found in these pages, you can enhance your health and reduce your risk of many diseases, while protecting our threatened environment in a multitude of ways.Visit:
