How To Be A Conscious Eater : Making Food Choices That Are Good For You, Others, And The Planet

By Sophie Egan ()

Using three criteria—is it good for me? is it good for others? is it good for the planet?—Sophie Egan, an expert in health, nutrition, and sustainability, revolutionizes our understanding of food in a way that will change the way we shop, cook, and eat. To be a conscious eater is not about diet, fads, or hard and fast rules. It’s about having the information to make informed choices amid the chaos of hype and marketing. For instance, plastic water bottles are convenient but contribute to a massive patch of garbage floating in the Pacific. A reusable container saves money and the environment. Organized into four categories—food produced by plants, by animals, by factories, by restaurant kitchens—A Radically Practical Guide to Conscious Eating covers everything: tips for buying produce, diet and cancer risks, the truth of sell-by dates, cutting down on food waste, the great protein myth, and much more.
