Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Once again Robbins, author of Diet for a New America (Stillpoint, 1987), gently nudges us into an awareness of the wasteful and unhealthy consequences of the consumption of animal products. Synthesizing a large body of social, ecological, economic, and nutritional information into a compact guide to vegetarianism, he establishes a direct relationship between the demand for meat, eggs, and dairy products and the increase in world hunger. He then debunks the many nutritional myths about vegetarianism, stresses its health benefits, and exposes the commercial interests that shape our eating habits. Finally, he provides us with a wide range of vegan recipes developed by Jia Patton and some of the nation's best vegetarian restaurants, as well as brief information on choosing where to shop and concise descriptions of commonly used whole foods. With its social, philosophical and spiritual orientation balanced by its wealth of practical detail and scientific documentation, Robbins's book is sure to be popular in health-conscious communities.

Format: Paperback
With a more personal style than Diet For a New America, John Robbins teaches us about the production and consumption of meat, chicken, fish, dairy and eggs. What I like about this book is how he comes from a spiritual rather than statistics-only perspective. Robbins encourages us to remember the simple health-nourishing habits like giving thanks and chewing your food slowly, those simple things we can easily forget in our modern ironic eat-quick-so-you-can-make-it-to-yoga-class lifestyles. I especially like the "What You Can Do" section, inspiring readers to educate themselves and others, giving tips on shopping/ cooking healthy foods and a listing of resources.
Jia Patton's recipes make the book for me. I had the privilege of taking some of her cooking classes with gourmet vegan food which melts your taste buds in its richness and diversity of flavor. In May All Be Fed, Jia abolishes stereotypes of vegan food being bland. Every time I have made the "Cream of Broccoli Soup" for friends they ask for the recipe and love it, deservedly so, with its creamy cashew base. The "Spinach Tofu Quiche" is wonderful too (people don't seem to miss the dairy); the "Plum Cobbler" feels healthy yet satisfies the sweet tooth going down. I recommend this book for anyone who is open to learning about the vegan diet, and who enjoys cooking and eating fulfilling and jazzy meals.

Format: Paperback
A friend kept bringing delicious vegan dishes to potlucks. Every time I asked her for a recipe, it was out of "May All Be Fed: Diet for a New World." I pulled this book off the shelf and into the kitchen, and now people are complimenting my cooking and coming back for seconds--even meat eaters. At a recent party, meat lovers kept coming back for seconds of the Vegetable Tofu Loaf, and I knew I had a goldmine of a cookbook. Every recipe I've tried has worked out great. I cut the oil in half in the Lemon Rice and Peas, because it didn't need 2 tablespoons for 4 servings, and it was still delicious.
The cookbook portion is the second half of the book. The first half is full of well referenced, easy-to-read information on a variety of nutritional and health topics, including protein (ch. 3); chicken, fish, dairy, and eggs (ch. 5); the marketing of infant formulas (ch. 6); and what individuals can do about the problems discussed in chapters 2 - 6 (ch. 7). I found the charts and graphs great for concisely conveying Robbins' points. Although he discusses serious societal and individual problems, the tone of the book is positive: all these problems are correctable and here's what you can do to help solve them.
Whether one uses this as a just a cookbook, a reference book, or both, this book is worth having!

Wonder what one person CAN DO to improve not only your own life but that of the entire planet? Read this book. It is filled with understandable information that can radically change your health, the health of the planet itself and give the opportunity for life to others as well. This book has changed my much so that, after reading the library's copy, I am buying one.

Format: Paperback
John Robbins is a great author. Everyone must read this if they are not a vegetarian or do not understand or respect the intelligence of our fellow creatures who share this earth. Robbins' sensitive look into the meat industry and the propoganda behind it sheds light on the coruptness and greed of the business, not to mention the deception and lengths for which they are willing to go to keep certain information virtually hidden from the masses.
The second half of the book is filled with wonderful recipes. Not a bad one thing is, it's vegan. The cream of broccoli soup is absolutely the best, and no one can believe there is no dairy in it! I reccommend this book to everyone. After reading this book, one must go on to read Robbins other book, Diet for a New America.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Adam Chen on September 7, 2003
Format: Paperback
I loved the hints and tips for mainting a cupboard and kitchen, and the nice recipes that I have been using/modifying for my own use. The information in the beginning is nice, too, although mostly a reprint of Diet for a New America.
The updated sections on fish and milk were very interesting, however, especially fish, which is touted today as a wonder-food for older people hoping to live longer. Many fish today arrive at your supermarkets having previously been mold-contaminated from sitting out in the open too long, and many contain high concentrations of Mercury, which also has been documented in a recent Reader's Digest article.
Just like what Marianne Williamson said on the front cover of this book: "I hope everyone reads this book!"

Format: Paperback
This is the first book on becoming vegan and the first vegan cookbook I ever bought. I'll be needing a new one soon, as the one I have now (second copy) is getting too dog-eared and stained to read. Robbins concisely presents every reason for becoming vegan, and backs them all up with extensive, useful footnotes. And the recipes are just plain delicious! The Mexican Black Bean Dip & Eggplant, Vegetable & Tahini Spread are addictive. The Caramel Apple Crunch makes a cold, sad day all better. The Plum Cobbler is just the thing to make when Italian prune plums are in season. The only sad thing is that he lives in Santa Cruz & I don't, so the delicious recipes focusing on what is in season don't work as well for me as for him.
