The No-Waste Save-the-Planet Vegan Cookbook delivers 100 delicious and waste-free recipes and more than 100 specific action steps anyone can take at home.
You can eat incredibly well and make a significant contribution to saving the planet. Celine Steens uplifting No-Waste Save-the-Planet Vegan Cookbook shows you how with delicious recipes and practical advice.
Plant-based foods have a dramatically lower negative impact on the environment than meats and animal products, as hundreds of studies have revealed. If you are a vegan and eat plant-based foods only, chances are you know this already. If you are a vegetarian or an omnivore, you probably have heard that this is one of the many reasons-quite aside from the ample health benefits of eating more plants and plant products-for adding more plant-based meals to your weekly routine. In the pages of this inspiring and eminently practical book you will discover:
• More than 100 earth-friendly, utterly delectable recipes, from splendid soups, substantial sides, and glorious salads to vibrant main courses and even sweet desserts, that leave no unusable waste behind and use all the parts of the produce we have grown or bought
• Practical guidance on how to shop for and eat local produce whenever possible, even when you live in a cold climate with limited crops nearby
• Surefire tips on how to save, store, and cook the parts of plants that you might be throwing out now
• Advice on how to buy and store food with little to no packaging-and zero non-recyclable, non-biodegradable packaging
Imagine how good you will feel by upping your game at dinnertime and at the same time reducing your food-related carbon footprint as far as it will go.
