I finished the book and I appreciate their message. It was all a lot heavier than I was expecting, though. I’m not convinced vegan, or even vegetarian, is my goal, but I am definitely more thoughtful about the quality of the food I purchase. If you liked Food Inc and want to be a skinny bitch, I recommend it 😉
I think I’m adequately convinced, at this point, that it is worth an extra dollar to purchase the hormone-free, organic milk or dozen eggs. We’re going to continue incorporating more meatless family meals and invest a little more in the meats we do purchase, treating them as a compliment to the dish rather than the focus of the dish. That should offset the cost by needing less and be a little healthier for us. I’m happy that my man is on board and even enthusiastic about this effort!
Current library picks are the Veganomicon cookbook and Super Natural Everyday. We’ve already tried the grilled portobello recipe from PPK (Excellente!) and I’m preparing the Double Broccoli Quinoa recipe from the 101 Cookbooks blog tonight. I’m pleased with how receptive the kids have been, probably because they love bread – which is – VEGETARIAN 😉
