In 1971, Diet for a Small Planet broke new ground, revealing how our everyday acts are a form of power to create health for ourselves and our planet.
The book first exposed the needless waste built into a meat-centered diet. Now, in a special edition for its 50th anniversary, world-renowned food expert Frances Moore Lappé goes even deeper, showing us how plant-centered eating can help restore our damaged ecology, address the climate crisis, and move us toward real democracy.
This new edition features eighty-five updated plant-centered recipes, including more than a dozen new ones from celebrity chefs including Mark Bittman, Padma Lakshmi, Alice Waters, José Andrés, Bryant Terry, Mollie Katzen, and Sean Sherman.
Join us as Lappé shares her personal journey and how this revolutionary book shaped her own life. She offers a fascinating philosophy on changing yourself—and the world—that can start with changing the way we eat.
