Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This account of how one family has explored the connections between food, health, community and the environment may inspire others to look beyond stereotypes to discover the many dimensions of a vegetarian lifestyle. Writer/biologist Sally Kneidel and her college-age daughter, Sara Kate, have compiled more than 100 recipes along with preparation tips, nutritional guidance and advice on how to eat at restaurants and at other people's houses with ease. While much of the health information is now commonly known, the Kneidels' well-reasoned defense of vegetarianism, focusing on humane treatment of animals and the environment, is worth considering. They describe U.S. meat industry policies that affect animals, independent farmers and the environment; and the impact of factory farm practices on health and community relations. Particularly inspiring are Sara Kate's description of how food fosters community and social change in the grassroots village in Mexico where she worked, and the vegetarian co-op she co-formed, and brief interviews with young vegetarians. Best suited for young adults who are vegetarians or considering a vegetarian lifestyle, this work may also prove useful to parents of young vegetarians who want a more complete understanding of vegetarian nutrition and menu options. (Oct. 15)

More About the Author

Sally Kneidel, PhD, is the author of 11 books on sustainable living, wildlife, and science education. Her most recent book, Creepy Crawlies and the Scientific Method 2nd Edition, is a tool kit for teachers and parents. Sally learned in her own classrooms that students are fascinated by the intricate behaviors of the tiny creatures all around us. As students' curiosity leads to questions and predictions and hands-on behavioral experiments, they master the process of scientific inquiry without even noticing.

Before Creepy Crawlies 2nd edition, Sally co-authored Veggie Revolution and Going Green with her daughter Sadie Kneidel. Veggie Revolution was hailed by Robert Kennedy, Jr, an "important expose of America's meat industry." Going Green is a guide to sustainable living, focusing on climate-protecting choices such as passive-solar homes, traveling without fossil fuels, and plant-based diets.

Format: Paperback
Veggie Revolution reads less like research and more like a personal journey to understand the meat industry, how it affects the animals, the environment, our communities and our health. It is full of helpful advice to readers who want to make a difference. I especially enjoyed the alternating voices of the mother/daughter authors as they shared their experiences and choices about food. Good section on vegetarian nutrition and cooking for the beginner.

Format: Paperback
I have read many books on vegetarianism and the environment over the years, so I was pleasantly surprised that Veggie Revolution approaches these subjects in a new way -- very thought-provoking and well-documented but at the same time a fascinating read, never dry or boring. The authors are not just giving us information, they are telling a story! For one section of the book, the authors visited a number of farms of various sizes and types and interviewed farm workers, owners, and other professionals. The accounts of the farm visits are so vivid that I could imagine I was right there with the authors. Another thing that makes the book very interesting is that the authors put a human face on the farmers and other people who are quoted in the book; they do this by giving us a glimpse into their lives and their perspectives on the issues. It is impressive that the authors treat all of them with respect and consideration, whether the authors share their values and perspectives or not. All through the book the authors use a conversational tone that I found very engaging -- they are not talking down to me, but sharing important information as one would with a friend.

The nutritional information is quite solid. I have learned a ton about nutrition over the past 35 years, as well as having been a vegetarian for the past 17 years, and I can say with assurance that the nutritional information in this book is right on the mark.

The recipes are great! I especially like how the recipes can be made with ingredients that are readily available: most of them I already have in my pantry or refrigerator, and any that I don't have are readily available at my local grocery or farmer's market. The directions are easy to follow, and having options and notes on the recipes is very helpful.
