Banyen's Description: 

In 1971, Diet for a Small Planet broke new ground, revealing how our everyday food choices are a form of power to create health for ourselves and our planet. This extraordinary book first exposed the needless waste built into a meat-centered diet. Now, in a special edition for its 50th anniversary, world-renowned food expert Frances Moore Lappé goes even deeper, showing us how plant-centered eating can help restore our damaged ecology, address the climate crisis, and move us toward real democracy. Sharing her personal journey and how this revolutionary book shaped her own life, Lappé offers a fascinating philosophy on changing yourself—and the world—that can start with changing the way we eat—and farm.

This new edition features eighty-five updated plant-centered recipes, including more than a dozen new delights from celebrity chefs including Mark Bittman, Padma Lakshmi, Alice Waters, Jos Andrs, Bryant Terry, Mollie Katzen, and Sean Sherman.

Long before anyone was talking about sustainability or climate change, Lappé was doing the math and showing us that the North American way of eating was unsustainable. “Frances Moore Lappé is one of the few people who can credibly be said to have changed the way we eat—and one of an even smaller group to have done it for the better.” —The New York Times

“Since the publication of [Diet for a Small Planet,] a movement dedicated to the reform of the food system has taken root in America. Lappé’s groundbreaking book connected the dots between something as ordinary and all-American as a hamburger and the environmental crisis, as well as world hunger.” —Michael Pollan, The Nation
