Unlike so many other books about trying to save the planet through our food choices, this book understands that not everyone is ready to become a vegan. With options to choose plant-based foods when we can and to cook more of our own food when we can, Linda Riebel offers a path out of complacency, regardless of where we are with our own preferences. Add this one by Linda Riebel to the favorites shelf if you want to do your share to slow down the planetary degradation and be part of the solution.
