Better Than Ever Give it a try
am 17. Juli 2000
It was some twenty years ago that I was given the first edition of this excellent book, and have since bought the updated version since my copies get lent out so much I needed to have one copy on hand.
We are laco-ova vegetarians which means we have some free range hens which we have that weed the gardens and also provide us with eggs, and I buy raw milk from a friend and make yogurt. Although I am now learning how to do this with soy milk as well.
Diet For A Small Planet is in tune with our lifestyle, which is based on live light on the earth but also eat healthy and happy.
The one recipe in this book that we make so often and is a winner at potlucks and gatherings with friends is the Potato Egg Bake, which is better than any potato dish we have ever had. The Buttermilk, mushrooms and seasoning make it a winner with men who are often the pucky eaters.
The other aspect of the book that I respect is the author explaining in a none preachy way how eating low on the food chain actually gets us closer to the nutriants the soil gives us. The book also explians why eating vegetarian is less expense in the long run, and that contrary to some beliefs such a lifestyle is very delicious and easier than running out for fast food. And having grown up in a hunting family and one involved with raising black angus I can tell you that raising l lb of all nutricious non-meat food is more cost effective to the earth than raising l lb of beef, chicken, lamb, pork etc.
This is one of those books you need in your home library, as it will remain a great source of information for years to come. And how nice to have a book written in a style that doesn't slam meat eaters, but simply tries to educate and inform.
