"Brian Kateman coined the term "Reducetarian"--A person who is deliberately reducing his or her consumption of meat--and a global movement was born. In this book, Kateman, the founder of the Reducetarian Foundation, presents more than 70 original essays from influential thinkers on how the simple act of cutting 10% or more of the meat from one's diet can transform the life of the reader, animals, and the planet. This book features contributions from such luminaries as Seth Godin, Joel Fuhrman, Victoria Moran, Jeffrey Sachs, Bill McKibben, Naomi Oreskes, Peter Singer, and others. With over 40 vegan, vegetarian, and "less meat" recipes from bestselling cookbook author Pat Crocker, as well as tons of practical tips for reducing the meat in your diet (for example, skip eating meat with dinner if you ate it with lunch; replace your favorite egg omelet with a tofu scramble; choose a veggie burrito instead of a beef burrito; declare a meatless day of the week), The Reducetarian Solution is a life--not to mention planet-saving book.

NYC Vegan brings New York's fabulous foods to the plant-based table. The book was written by native New Yorkers as a tribute to the city they love. From the diners and delis of Brooklyn to the traditions of Little Italy and Chinatown, the foods of New York are the foods of the world. Old New York: Manhattan clam chowder, Waldorf salad, eggs Benedict, New York-style pizza, and New York-style cheesecake. Street foods and festivals: Soft pretzels, churros, falafel, Italian ice, caramel corn, and zeppoles. Delis and diners: Reuben sandwich, bagels, pot pie, and Brooklyn egg creams. Bakeries: Knishes, cinnamon rolls, black-and-white cookies, and Irish soda bread. Jewish specialties: Blintzes, brisket, mandelbroit, and "chicken" soup. Neighborhoods: Polish pierogis, Italian lasagna, Dominican arroz con ma̕z, Greek avgolemono soup, and Puerto Rican mofongo. These recipes are simple and delicious and bring the city vibe to your own kitchen. As self-trained cooks, Michael and Ethan are food lovers who show how vegan food can taste just as good as nonvegan dishes and how eliminating animal products from your diet does not mean you can't enjoy New York City's iconic foods. This book includes full-color photography by Jackie Sobon and a list of current New York City vegan restaurants.

Growing up in an all-women household and coddled endlessly by his Italian mother and grandmother, Eric Lindstrom was nourished to obesity on meaty sauces, fried eggs, and butter-laden cookies. After spending the first half of his life as an adamant omnivore, Lindstrom went 100% vegan. Reluctantly. Overnight. From burgers to beets, from pork to parsnips. It's time for a down-to-earth book that proves anyone can go vegan (even someone who once ate sixty-eight chicken wings in a sitting). How can a man adopt a vegan approach? Won't he die of protein deficiency? What if he is married to a vegan woman? How would he order a salad at a Minnesota steakhouse? What should he bring to a gluten-free, nut-free, macrobiotic, nightshade-free, oil-free, vegan potluck (true story)? Part confession and part survival guide, The Skeptical Vegan explains how simple it really is to be vegan, covering topics from food and nutrition to social challenges and lifestyle. Snarky, witty, and opinionated to a fault, Lindstrom speaks as a male vegan, contesting the notion that 'real men' should only eat meat. With twenty original 'veganized' recipes including Portobello steaks, carrot hot dogs, tofu wings, 'meaty' chili, and cauliflower bites (which helped him shed thirty pounds), Lindstrom demonstrates how to take control of your diet while still eating 'meatily' and taking into account the ethical considerations of living a better life for the animals, the environment, and yourself.

The Italian table, from north to south, has always borne minestrone, bean soups, bruschetta with extra virgin olive oil, pastas with vegetable sauces, preserves, fruit. These dishes, typical of the Mediterranean diet, are all also entirely compatible with the vegan point of view. Vegano Italiano celebrates these dishes and more. Seasonal, mouth-watering, and fun, these recipes will let the whole family experiment with new dishes, reinvent old favorites, and get the most out of local, seasonal ingredients.

How to cook soups, salads, and stews in a sheet pan-including Roasted Tomato Gazpacho with Toasty Croutons, Chickpea and Squash Stew with Crispy Tofu, and Sweet Potato, Arugula, and Pecan Salad. Plus here's how to make chips (Sesame-Miso Kale Chips), pizzas, pot pies, vegetable braises, risottos, polenta, granola. And desserts, of course, from a Pear Galette to Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Squares to an incredible vegan Sticky Toffee Pudding. Amazingly convenient, amazingly versatile, amazingly tasty, Sheet Pan Suppers Meatless reinvents plant-based cooking, making it easy for everyone to put vegetables front and center at the family meal.

Veganism is going mainstream. The benefits of consuming fewer animal products appear frequently in the news, and public figures and celebrities have openly embraced the tenets of a vegan diet, bringing it further into the food consciences of baby boomers, millennials, and post-millennials alike. Whether exploring a vegan diet for health, environmental, or political reasons, more and more people are looking to get hearty, plant-based meals onto their table. But eating vegan can seem overwhelming: Will it be flavorful? Satisfying? Easy to make? And it's easy to rely on processed foods. America's Test Kitchen addresses head-on what intimidates people: finding great-tasting and filling vegan protein options, cooking without dairy, preparing different whole grains and vegetables, and even baking. With more than 200 vibrant, foolproof recipes including proper day-starters, "cheesy" pizza you'll actually want to eat, filling vegetable-and-grain bowls, new dinner favorites, appetizers, DIY staples, and the ultimate birthday cake, this cookbook has something satisfying for everyone--the committed vegan or simply those looking to freshen up their cooking.
