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

By

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.

Use mindfulness for healing and fulfillment. Paola Merrill, author and creator behind the popular YouTube channel The Cottage Fairy, left a hectic life in the city for the rural mountains in search of a deeper connection to herself and the world. She learned that nature is the biggest teacher of all—if we open our eyes to its wisdom. Mindful living can be applied in most walks of life, and Merrill’s writing encourages you to find healing and fulfillment, wherever you are.

Make Every Move a Meditation

Grow by Using Exercise as Meditation

Praise for her past work includes “A great narrative on how moving your body can actually transform your brain! ”—Richard C. Davis PhD, BCN, Psychologist and Brain Trainer

#1 New Release in Sports Health & Safety, Cycling, Sports Psychology, and Walking

In Make Every Move a Meditation, learn how to find freedom using the mind-body connection as you transform movement into a powerful practice of mindful movement.

Exercise can be meditation. What do you think of when you hear the word meditation? A quiet room filled with monks? An Instagram influencer? What about moving meditation? Yoga? Tai Chi? For too long, meditation in books has focused on specific periods of meditation, rather than mediation through fitness or daily activities. What if lifting weights, dancing with your love, or walking across a room counted? What if you could use exercise as meditation? What if you could make every move a meditation?

Connect with the present moment in each movement. In Make Every Move a Meditation, award-winning author, meditation leader, and mental health advocate Nita Sweeney shows readers that fitness can be mindfulness. She teaches readers how to bring meditation and mindfulness into any activity by incorporating centuries-old techniques. Studies show that both exercise and meditation reduce anxiety, stabilize blood pressure, improve mood and cognition, and lead to a deeper self-relationship and wisdom. Movement is medicine, and meditation is medicine. Let’s combine the two with exercise as meditation.

Inside Make Every Move a Meditation, you’ll learn to:

  • Turn exercise into a meditation tool and use exercise as meditation
  • Make any activity, even walking through the house, a mindful practice
  • Enjoy the benefits of meditation while getting fit

If you like meditation books and best sellers such as Think Like a Monk, Practicing Mindfulness, or Breath, you’ll love Make Every Move a Meditation.
