The list author says: "Thinking of moving towards a meat free or dairy free diet? Here are a few books to help get you started. The more you know the more you can eat smart, and the better you can deal with your friends and family's lame questions like "where do you get your protien?" and "don't vegetables have feelings too?"
Do yourself a favor.... Do the animals a favor..... Do the environment a favor..... Start here.
"This is by far my favorite book because the brilliant Will Tuttle weaves together the environmental, health, and scientific concerns with the spiritual aspect. A beautiful discussion of what we do to other beings on this planet, we actually do to ourselves."
"Melanie Joy sparks my inner intellectual. Who doesn't want to know the truth? Joy outlines the ways in which we rationalize, deny, normalize, and justify the cognitive dissonance between our actions and our moral urges. Further, Joy discusses the ways in which the political/economic/cultural structures make the truth invisible.... literally and figuratively."
"Everyone goes veg for different reasons.... Sometimes you just want to look and feel good! This book is hilarious and a great read. These two divas also have a really solid chapter on why drinking milk is dumb."
