Amazon.com Review

Vegetarians, you don’t need to read this. Hardcore meat eaters, stop reading here, as this Kindle Single explains a diet that will deny you many gastronomical pleasures. However, you might just try the "Weekday Vegetarian" diet for the challenge of it. This diet is as simple as it sounds. Eat no meat Monday to Friday. From Graham Hill, founder of treehugger.com, comes a diet that is not a path to weight loss, but rather a "sustainability diet" for those who want to shrink their carbon footprint, save the planet, and save money. Weekday Vegetarian includes 20 tasty vegetarian recipes that are sure to leave serious meat eaters craving something a little more substantial. --Paul Diamond

Most "how to be a vegetarian" cookbooks I've read in the past have not only completely denounced meat, (making me feel "guilty" every single time I slipped up), but they also don't really justify the things that matter most to me. Yes, a lot of people become vegetarian because of the cruel slaughtering of cute farm animals, but what a lot of people don't realize is that there is a "right" way to eat meat. We are omnivores, and I think that lowering your meat consumption to just the weekend, and ensuring that the little amount of meat you do eat is ethically and sustainably raised, is just the way to go. It's about changing the way meat is raised and consumed (instead of not consumed). Besides, it's not healthy to eat more than a MAX of 5 oz. of meat a day anyways.

I think that once we realize that every meal doesn't have to have meat in it, we will all be healthier and better off. I mean I grew up eating cereal for breakfast and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch every day...that didn't make me a vegetarian, that just happened to mean that I was eating meals that didn't call for turkey or chicken or beef. It's silly to think that this concept "isn't palatable," it just makes sense.

I want someone to help me make choices that will change the food industry, and live a more sustainable and healthy lifestyle. And for only 3 bucks, this is a perfect edition to my iPod, and does just that. I thnk it might also open up some new perspectives on how people eat, and encourage a new way of thinking. Kudos to TED and Graham Hill!

it makes so much sense. a lot of people probably do something similar already. so reading a book that clearly points out all the benefits of it makes one feel even better about it. if you are a vegetarian, then this book might make you feel more tolerant towards your carnivorous friends and family. give them a chance by making THEM do this. once they can do this, you are halfway there. yet if you are a hardcore meat eater then this book also works for you since it will help you understand some of your granola & quinoa munching friends better :-)

i love the concept since i mostly eat vegetarian. matter of fact when i pay for the food iE if i am buying groceries or order food in a restaurant it's usually always vegetarian. yet when i am offered a wonderful looking and smelling indian chicken curry, i will never say no.

graham hill has put together a great list of recipes as well. yum yum.

The title is apt but the discussion was excellent and I found the non judgmental tone to be a key reason that this sub-movement is going to have an impact. Like Festivus; this book is for the restovus and we think that there is nothing wrong with a burger every now and then. As a kitchen savvy omnvivore I know that eating veggie-style can be a little harder but the thought that goes in to the movement generates (surfaces?) some absolutely excellent recipes/food from ancient cultures to modern cuisine.

The movement grows when its made more approachable through intelligent, non judgmental discussion. Whether your motivation to grow the movement is save little timmy the lamb or to save the planet, you have to give Kudos to Mr Hill.

I absolutely love this book! It was a fast read. Only takes a few hours, if you can read it in one sitting. So informative, eye-opening, and factual. Graham Hill writes this book so simply and straightforward that you cannot help but feel inspired. I think everyone needs to read this book, and at least give themselves a chance to try vegetarianism. For the last two years, I have gone back to being a vegetarian and it is challenging, but I feel much better about myself & my health!!! Give it a read, folks. You may surprise yourself...

A well-reasoned argument based on reducing meat intake for a variety of reasons: health, environmental, whatever you want. The other reviewers are accurate in saying that's pretty much the whole thing, but I think this book's main appeal is all the reasons and statistics it provides to back up that idea (to help motivate you, or to help you explain to other people!) Also, there are delicious-looking recipes in the back and a sizeable list of other resources. Excellent work.

Very sensible book and the probability of impact by this book is very good. More this book circulates, the better it is for the system.The authors have done a very good job and the resources and data bank suggestions at the end are amazing.

I like the idea that you can be a weekend veggie lover of a weekday or mix it up. He has some good recipes to help you along. My husband loved the eggplant stir fry one and I like some of his recipes that I changed slightly for my use.

Made vegetarian eating sound interesting, maybe even palatable. Still would rather eat a juicy steak or ham sandwich. Do you have recipes for kale chips?
