Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This volume provides current, sound, practical information on developing healthier eating habits and mapintaining an environmentally friendly kitchen. A former editor of the newsletter Green Guide and member of the educational organization Mothers & Others for a Livable Planet, the author convincingly states the importance of a green diet and outlines its principles. She includes practical sections on changing shopping habits, seeking alternative food sources, stocking the pantry, and preserving food. Beginners will benefit from detailed descriptions of unfamiliar whole foods and tips on label reading. Advanced readers will appreciate the introduction to food preservation techniques and tips on subscription farms and community-supported agriculture. An extensive list of resources includes publication, organizations, and catalog companies. Highly recommended for public libraries.?Bonnie Poquette, Arthur Andersen, Milwaukee, Wis.

From Booklist

Berthold-Bond's practical guide answers dozens of questions environmentally conscientious and curious cooks have wondered about for years, such as the geographic origin of common healthful foods, their processing or production, and what makes them healthful or not. High points are the detailed discussion of oils and their uses, fatty acid profiles, and smoke points; the microbiology and biochemistry of food preservation in lay language, along with step-by-step procedures for freezing, drying, canning, and preparing a root cellar; a survey of organic agriculture and its standards; and suggestions on how to reduce food packaging and its attendant toxins and nonbiodegradable waste. The last section covers nonfood issues, including household hazardous waste, alternative and safe cleaning supplies and pest control, water purity and conservation, energy-saving appliances, and equipment choices. Well formatted for easy reference, this handbook offers numerous charts of equivalencies, substitutions, and cooking times and concludes with a resource list and an index. Penny Spokes

As a parent, I try my best to create a home environment which is happy, healthy and safe for my family. The ideas I came across in this book have helped me in my efforts to do just that. From tips on eco-friendly cleaning, to food storage, from saving energy to nutrtitional tips... it has a little bit of everything! It is well written, easy to read - and a great book to keep on hand to refer to later on. It is the type of book which gets you thinking... and has you looking at your kitchen, and even the rest of your home... in a whole new light!

I've had this book for four years. I leave it on my kitchen table for guests to browse. Most everyone will end up reading at least 2-3 excerpts to whomever may be within ear-shot. They love it! It's definately a conversation starter. I plan on purchasing it for friends and family this Christmas.

Many useful tips in this book. Being 'green' is the new buzzword/catchphrase/trend these days, but it's been a way of life for many people for a long time.

This book will give you many ideas and tips to really improve your health and that of your family, as well as help the environment, and save some sheckles to boot.
