Are you an environmentalist who champions wise water usage, clean oceans, and a reduction in greenhouse gases? Or are you a health-savvy individual interested in permanent weight loss, disease prevention, and optimal nutrition? Regardless of your erspectives and intentions, you'll discover through this book how a plant-based diet can directly address all of these concerns. Dr. Patricia Tallman explains why the most effective action you can take to mitigate climate change, water pollution, rainforest estruction, and water shortages also will enable you to combat diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Side-by-side comparisons of plant-based recipes versus animal-based recipes chart their environmental impact in terms of water usage, manure production, and greenhouse gas emissions, as well as their nutritional content. For example, by simply replacing beef in a Sloppy Joe recipe with a plant-based protein, you can save the following per serving: 1,670 liters of water; 4.4 kilograms of manure; and enough greenhouse gas to drive 10.7 kilometers. Included is a vast array of more than 65 easy-to-make recipes that are as appetizing as they are nutritious.
