Overview

John Robbins is considered by many to be the most eloquent and powerful spokesman in the country for a sane and sustainable future. In May All Be Fed, he explains why so few have so much to eat and why so many have so little. With thorough documentation, Robbins exposes the commercial and political forces that cause the affluent to suffer from heart disease, osteoporosis, and other diet-related diseases, and also cause the poor to be deprived of a basic human right - ample, wholesome food. May All Be Fed is a guide to eating with appreciation and gratitude, and to understanding how our food choices affect our health and our world. The message is straightforward - the way we eat has a significant impact. By consciously making our choices as to how and what we eat, this intimate and fundamental part of our lives can be an effective expression of our desire to create a healthy life for ourselves and contribute to the health of others. The first step is to become aware of how advertising and commercially motivated educational programming shape our food choices, and mislead us toward disease and unhappiness. Robbins reveals the deceptive tactics often used by food manufacturers, producers, and lobbyists to get us to purchase their products. Recognizing and talking about these issues isn't enough. May All Be Fed shows us how to turn words into actions: A detailed list of 124 substantive ideas of what you can do to make your voice heard. Why a reduction in meat consumption may well be the most effective single action you can take. Crucial information about today's chicken, fish, dairy products, and eggs. Learn a new way of eating with 200 delicious recipes, including whole-grain breakfast cereals and puddings; tasty soups; hearty stews and chilis; crunchy as well as leafy salads; and satisfying fruit desserts. May All Be Fed is a worthy sequel to the author's acclaimed international best-seller, Diet for a New America. With his powerful yet gentle style, John Robbins

The bestselling author of Diet for a New America presents his greatest achievement yet--a practical look at how we can change ourselves and the world by changing the way we eat. PBS has prepared an hour-long documentary about Robbins scheduled to air next year.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Once again Robbins, author of Diet for a New America (Stillpoint, 1987), gently nudges us into an awareness of the wasteful and unhealthy consequences of the consumption of animal products. Synthesizing a large body of social, ecological, economic, and nutritional information into a compact guide to vegetarianism, he establishes a direct relationship between the demand for meat, eggs, and dairy products and the increase in world hunger. He then debunks the many nutritional myths about vegetarianism, stresses its health benefits, and exposes the commercial interests that shape our eating habits. Finally, he provides us with a wide range of vegan recipes developed by Jia Patton and some of the nation's best vegetarian restaurants, as well as brief information on choosing where to shop and concise descriptions of commonly used whole foods. With its social, philosophical and spiritual orientation balanced by its wealth of practical detail and scientific documentation, Robbins's book is sure to be popular in health-conscious communities.-- Linda Chopra, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio
Alice Joyce
Robbins (whose "Diet for a New America" brought environmental concerns together with nutritional advice and the issue of animal rights) once again sounds an alarm with this plea for change. Citing the disproportionate amount of grain raised for livestock feed, the author suggests vegetarian diets to help feed the world's hungry. Numerous scientific studies quoted point to overconsumption of protein and high rates of osteoporosis, cancer, and heart disease. Data that should prove controversial suggest dietary indoctrination in years past by dairy and meat industry lobbyists, aimed at increasing sales of those products. Although perhaps guilty of preaching to the converted, Robbins' goal--of changed dietary habits' fostering worldwide spirituality and harmony--is certainly a worthy one. Accompanied by nearly 200 highly varied recipes, a dictionary of ingredients, and a resource list of pertinent organizations.
