What can we do to allay global warming, contend with world hunger, avoid genetically modified foods, be healthier, and live longer? In The Compassionate Diet, Arran Stephens, who has been at the leading edge of the organic food movement for decades and a vegetarian his entire adult life, answers these complex questions in the simplest terms: Eat vegetarian.
A balanced and natural vegetarian diet is neither a fad nor a passing trend. It has been part of many cultures over untold millennia. The Compassionate Diet distills the history, philosophy, and core benefits of eschewing meat in a completely approachable and nonjudgmental fashion. Replete with 50 elegant and beautiful color illustrations, the book makes a wonderful gift for foodies, vegetarians, or anyone who has flirted with the idea of switching to a plant-based diet.
