Real Food for a Change: Bringing Nature, Joy and Justice to the Table

Real Food for a Change: Bringing Nature, Joy and Justice to the Table




People want answers. They know something is wrong with their food and the system that's producing it. Friends and family are getting sick and food is losing flavour. Every day a new report links food with disease. Giving to the food bank isn't reducing hunger and locally grown food is hard to find.

Real Food for a Change addresses this growing anxiety around food. It's an eater's guide to the galaxy with elegantly simple choices individuals can make in how they eat and how they shop.

Many books deal with the connections between diet and health. This is the only one that makes the connection between personal health, the health of our community, the health of our economy and the health of the planet. It's a visionary guide that will help you make healthy, environmental and ethical decisions about food, and it does it with humour and style.

From the controversy over the bovine growth hormone, already entering Canada through U.S. milk products, to solutions on how to avoid rampant salmonella and finding safe meat; from money saving tips to offset the cost of organic produce to how your choice of cooking utensils can save you time and fuel, Real Food for a Change is a powerhouse of information and solutions. It also includes a selection of recipes to help get you started on this new way of eating.
