Email this review


By the juvenile editor of Kirkus Reviews, and thus not reviewed here: A consideration of the case for vegetarianism along with detailed nutritional guidance for teenagers who choose to do without meat. The book assesses the standard American meat-based diet in terms of animal rights, human health, food industry economics, and world resources, then measures vegetarian diets against established nutrient requirements. There are chapters on food pollution, daily meal planning, macrobiotics, and the special situations of vegetarian athletes, weight watchers, and pets--plus basic techniques of vegetarian cooking and over 50 starter recipes.
