No Animal Food and Nutrition and Diet with Vegetable Recipes


Read by Ben Adams

(4 stars; 11 reviews)


Though little is known about its author, this is considered the first vegan cookbook ever written. At the time of its composition, the Vegetarian Society and other advocates of vegetarian diets were engaged in a debate about the inclusion of dairy and eggs in one's regime. This text declares, from the title to the footnotes, that the best diet is free from all animal products. The arguments span historical, physical, ethical, aesthetic, and economic considerations and conclude with practical advice that stands the test of time. An essential text for those interested in vegetarianism and animal rights. - Summary by Ben Adams

Reviews

perhaps a bit dated but very good reading

(5 stars)

watch Forks Over Knives, Food Inc., cowspiracy, Earthlings

Good Points

(5 stars)

I agree with opening chapter so far.

(3 stars)

definitely dated, especially in some sections regarding facts that have been otherwise disproven. Had to stop half way through when I heard the suggestion that humans should only ever drink water when thirsty and to be aware of overdrinking water as a health hazard
