"I loved Friend's philosophy on how to be a compassionate carnivore.... It really is possible to deeply care about animals and eat meat."
Catherine Friend tackles the carnivore's dilemma, exploring the contradictions, nuances, questions, and bewildering choices facing today's more conscious meat-eaters. The Compassionate Carnivoreis "perfect for people who would like to eat meat but have moral, ethical, or health concerns about doing so" (Marion Nestle, What to Eat). Based on her own personal struggle, Friend's original, witty take on the meat and livestock debates shows consumers how they can be healthy and humane carnivores, too."Smart, personal, and funny…Carnivore will make you want to hug a cow--and order a ribeye."--Women's Health" Convincing...an unusually measured approach to a controversial topic." --E: The Environmental Magazine
