quotes:

"...capitalism has led us to believe that development is a process that will go on forever. This philosophy portrays nature as an infinite resource. [Petrini] says we have treated the earth that provides our food as if there were no need to reinvest in it, no need to help rebuild the soils we deplete or clean the water we poison. What has recently become apparent to anyone who reads the news is that this is not true." (pg. 46)

A book that finally combines local sustainable eating with vegan recipes! There's also a large section on traditional Chinese medicine. I learned a lot from reading this book, which was written by a holistic nutritionist.The book is stil a great resource that discusses farming, food creation and principles. As a beelover, I especially appreciated her take on beekeeping and support for it. The book is Canadian and lists lots of other books for further reading.

Honestly, I love this lady! She was so knowledgeable and exposed me to some important information that I had no idea about! I like the recipes but I wish there were more pictures. This book really needed some food-porn shots!

I love this book. My daughter was a recipe tester in this book! Every recipe I have tried has been a winner. There are lots of raw recipes too.

The recipes aren't very accessible, using a large number of odd ingredients. The first chapter, Health is Happiness, is very worth a read.

I loved the recipes in this book, and the general realistic locavore advice.

I really liked how much she stresses the importance of eating locally grown foods. I definitely think more people, including myself, could make a bigger effort to support their communities.
