The Food Revolution

How Your Diet Can Save Your Life and Our World (Plant Based Diet, Food Politics)

By John Robbins

Plant-Based Diet Benefits You Should Not Ignore

“If every patient in every doctor's office read this book, it would revolutionize the health of America.” —Neal Barnard, MD, president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

#1 Bestseller in Agriculture & Food Policy, Vegetables, Special Diet, Vegan & Vegetarian, Healthy Living, Personal Health, and Diets & Weight Loss

A book from the over-one-million-copies-sold author who made popular the connections between diet, physical health, animal cruelty, and environmentalism.

A revolution in food-politics. When John Robbins released an early version of this book in 1987, he took the first steps in the food revolution. His insight into the harm caused by America’s eating habits was a wake-up call for many.

Making conscious food choices. It is obvious to us that what we eat affects our 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.

Plant-based diet benefits. Arguments for a plant-based diet are compelling and backed by over 20 years of work by Robbins focused on the subject of conscious eating. 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 The Food Revolution and discover:

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

If you have read books such as We are the Weather, How Not to Die, 31-Day Food Revolution, or Fast Food Genocide, then The Food Revolution is a must read!

No Happy Cows

No Cow Left Behind

From investigative journalist and bestselling author John Robbins comes a collection of essays on food politics, sustainability, and revolution.

Holy cow. With words like food additives, GMOs, and Big Food buzzing around, it’s getting harder to choose what to eat. And even the most well-informed eaters have a thing or two to learn about real food and the food system. Gathering and updating articles from his Huffington Post column, Robbins’s No Happy Cows features recent observations along with never before published material on today’s food revolution.

Moo-ve over, food corporations. You have to know food to eat food, but what happens when food companies leave some facts out? With commentaries on what we should and shouldn’t eat (and why), Robbins brings us to the frontlines of the food revolution. From his undercover investigations of feedlots and slaughterhouses, to the slave trade behind chocolate and coffee, he gives readers a look into the importance of working for a more compassionate and environmentally responsible world.

Inside read more about:

  • Greed and salmonella
  • Soy and Alzheimer's
  • And much more!

If you enjoyed books by Marion Nestle or reads like How Not to DieFeeding You Lies or The Way We Eat Now; then you’ll want to learn more by reading No Happy Cows.
