9780983305118: The Green Foodprint: Food Choices for Healthy People and a Healthy Planet

Millions of people realize that their food choices can help-or hurt-the earth. They want to reduce their "food footprint," but with so many decisions to make (omnivore or vegetarian, organic or conventional, local or global), how is a busy person to navigate all the possibilities? The Green Foodprint: Food Choices for Healthy People and a Healthy Planet is a concise, easy-to-read, and practical guide through the new world of healthful food that is also easier on the environment. The book is packed with inspiring facts and stories about how readers can make a big difference with a few wise decisions. Appealing to a wide range of readers and eaters, The Green Foodprint describes five memorable guidelines, and the many healthful, earth-friendly options available within each guideline. Against the background of a flawed industrial food system, the book highlights positive changes and the power of citizens to help themselves and the earth with their food choices. Likely audiences include people interested in sustainability, students and educators at all levels from middle school through university, health care providers, nutritionists, people concerned about their health, environmentalists, journalists, foodies, animal lovers, vegetarians, and parents of young children. Why is this book unique? Trade books on the environment fall into two broad categories: long, detailed narratives, exposes, or descriptions of specific industries; and lifestyle overview surveys that offer checklists for actions individuals can take. The former tend to be very detailed and depressing, leaving readers to deduce what to do. The latter tend to be superficial and try to cover too many aspects of American life. The Green Foodprint combines the best of both. It covers one domain-food-and shows how readers can make earth-friendly choices that have proven results. The book gives them enough information so they can appreciate the challenges we face, and also lists specific actions they can take. Rather than preaching a single approach, the book offers assurance that there are many earth-friendly food options and the encouragement to select the ones that make the most sense for each individual reader. Set off in an easy-to-read format are dozens of inspiring vignettes of real individuals and groups that are healing our food world. 155 pages, plus sources and index. Second edition (new title). Foreword by John Robbins, author of the groundbreaking book The Food Revolution. The Green Foodprint is highly recommended by experts in the worlds of food, environment, and health.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for The Green Foodprint
 
Linda Riebel offers her readers a highly accessible and judgment-free book that helps newcomers to the world of sustainable food with easy-to-follow guidelines. Whether your motivation is saving the planet, improving your health, or just eating in line with your values, this book will help you get there.
Michele Simon, JD, MPH, Author of Appetite for Profit: How the Food Industry Undermines Our Health and How to Fight Back
 
In today's complex world, even eating is a political act. In The Green Foodprint, Linda Riebel explains where our food comes from, why it matters and what we can do about it. This concise, comprehensive and easy-to-read resource helps guide us towards healthier choices and a more sustainable future. 
            Buzz Hofford, District Manager, Bon Appetit Management Company, and owner,                       Sustainable Foods Network
 
My patients want to know how to improve their diets to support their recovery from breast cancer, but don't have the time or energy to dig through all the latest information about food, health, and the environment. This book gives them what they need, whatever their individual requirements may be. The Green Foodprint will go on the recommended reading list for my patients.
Lyn Freeman, Ph.D., Director of Mind Matters Research
 
The Green Foodprint shows that you can personally tackle global warming from the dinner table--and feel healthier while doing it. 
Laura Stec, Chef and author of Cool Cuisine: Taking the Bite Out of Global Warming
 
We are the privileged who can choose what to eat every day. This luxury comes with the responsibility of choosing food that benefits our bodies and our planet. The Green Foodprint provides the information you need to make informed and humane food decisions--it will empower you with important knowledge and practical tips that will help you make a difference.
Mark Berman, MD
 
Unlike so many other books about trying to save the planet through our food choices, this book understands that not everyone is ready to become a vegan. With options to choose plant-based foods when we can and to cook more of our own food when we can, Linda Riebel offers a path out of complacency, regardless of where we are with our own preferences. Add this one by Linda Riebel to the favorites shelf if you want to do your share to slow down the planetary degradation and be part of the solution.  
Patti Breitman, co-author of How to Eat Like a Vegetarian Even If You Never Want to Be One
