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!

Sustainable Minimalism

By

The Aspiring Minimalist’s Guide to Living Consciously and Contributing to a “Greener” Tomorrow

“This is the perfect book for people that want to find a realistic roadmap to sustainable living.” ―The Holistic Millennial

Eco-minimalism is a hot-button issue right now, and for good reason. Living a life with less can be the key to saving our precious planet.

Break the consumption cycle. There’s so much to do, and way too much to buy. Whether it’s through late night TV ads, social media, or other sources of influence, we are addicted to buying and then storing things. Sometimes we consume with no regret and other times we realize that we’re doing more harm than good to our wallets and our homes. It’s a constant cycle―one that many are longing to break. Who wants their hard-earned money to go toward something that soon ends up in a landfill?

A guide to eco-minimalism with a plan that is realistic. Manufacturing "stuff" exploits Earth's precious (and finite) resources. And then there's the harsh reality of where it all goes. Our discarded possessions ultimately head to landfills and contribute to environmental pollution, releasing greenhouse gases during breakdown and decomposition. Sustainable Minimalism is the solution. Empower yourself to incrementally incorporate the tenets of sustainable minimalism into your home and life. Learn to master the easiest tasks first and build upon your successes―a practical and stress-free process. Now that’s sustainable!

A blueprint for sustainability and stress management:

  • How to gain greater mental clarity and increase your free time with fewer possessions
  • Environmentally friendly ways of decluttering and organizing
  • Ways to improve your financial stability, while going green at the same time
  • How to get organized and operate a zero-waste home
