From the Humane Society of the United States’ Senior Director of Food Policy, comes the ‘whys’ and ‘hows’ of eating less meat, and enjoying more plant-based meals.
Aimed at the countless individuals contemplating a more plant-based diet, MeatLess offers concrete reasons for reducing meat consumption – to look and feel better, have a lighter eco-footprint, or to help animals – and simple strategies, recipes, swaps, and shopping advice to help people on their way.
According to a recent survey by the Vegetarian Resource Group, 47 percent of the U.S. population eats at least one meat-free meal each week. Food industry insiders predict that flexitarian eating – consuming meat, but focusing more on plant-based foods – will be a top trend in 2017.
Part exposé, part lifestyle book, with stories and over 60 recipes, MeatLess presents scientific and nutritional research along with real-life examples in a compelling and relatable style to help guide readers on their journey to reduce meat and eat more plant-based foods. It offers a concise, practical, and realistic approach to enjoying healthier, meat-free meals on each reader’s own terms.
