Summary: "Meatless Mondays. Eat less meat for climate change. Trendy vegan bake shops. Cage-free chicken campaigns on Youtube. Happy meat vs. industrial beef. Flexitiarianism. Mark Bittman's Vegan before 6 pm. Across North America, people are talking a lot about meat. Whether to eat it, or not. Whether to go vegan. Or, if they're going to eat meat, they're talking about what kind is the best kind. This book takes a fresh look at the world of vegetarianism, exploring the history, culture and philosophy behind the practice of cutting meat from one's diet, including religious reasons. The book will also explore the modern reasons why people choose to skip the burger (climate change, industrial agriculture, environment in general), though in a non-judgmental way that makes space for all kinds of choices. Sarah is a meat eater-though a conflicted one. And this is the perspective that is reflected in the text. The final two chapters of the book will explore what the nutritional alternatives to meat are and offer suggestions for how to make meals from breakfast through to dinner without meat."--
