The Food Revolution

By

The Saving Power of the Plant-Based Diet

A revolution in food-politics. When food activist John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in launching the food revolution. His viewpoint and insight on the harms of America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many. By bringing to our attention fundamental issues in our eating habits, such as our dependence on animal products, Robbins provokes our awareness and promotes change.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our own bodies, but what we may not realize is that what we eat also affects our world. In fact, most of the foods that are bad for us (think: genetically modified products) also negatively impact our environment. By approaching our eating habits with intentionality, we benefit our own health and that of the world we live in.

The value of a plant-based diet. Robbins’ arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work focused on the subject of conscious eating. Through exposing the dangers in our factory farming system, Robbins makes a definitive case for solely plant-based eating. This timely read on healthy eating will enlighten those curious about plant-based diets and fortify the mindsets of the already converted.

Read John Robbins’ book, The Food Revolution: How Your Diet Can Help Save Your Life and Our World, and discover…

  • The negative effects your current eating habits could be having on you
  • A powerful case for plant-based eating
  • Wisdom from one of the most frequently cited books of the food-politics revolution

If books such as We are the WeatherHow Not to Die31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide have interested you, then The Food Revolution is the next book for you!
