Bittman, a food writer who loves to eat and eats out frequently, lost thirty-five pounds and saw marked improvement in his blood . Cheaper, healthier, and socially sound, Food Matters represents the future of American eating.

Bittman, a food writer who loves to eat and eats out frequently, lost thirty-five pounds and saw marked improvement in his blood levels by simply cutting meat and processed foods out of two of his three daily meals. But the simple truth, as he points out, is that as long as you eat more vegetables and whole grains, the result will be better health for you and for the world in which we live. Unlike most things that are virtuous and healthful, Bittman's plan doesn't involve sacrifice.

The book "Food Matters: a Conscious Guide to Eating" by Mark Bittmann is an intersection between a guide to food ethics and politics, a sensible outline of dietary guidelines promoting good eating habits, and a cookbook. From the award-winning champion of culinary simplicity who gave us the bestselling How to Cook Everything and How to Cook Everything Vegetarian comes Food Matters, a plan for responsible eating that's as good for the planet as it is for your weight and your health. We are finally starting to acknowledge the threat carbon emissions pose to our ozone layer, but few people have focused on the extent to which our consumption of meat contributes to global warming.

Mark Bittman’s newest cookbook isn’t just a cookbook. It’s a book that discusses the implications – both to our own health and to the environment around us – of the way we eat. Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating with More Than 75 Recipes is divided up into two main sections, with Food Matters coming first and the recipes coming second. Bittman leads the reader through a chapter on rethinking consumption to get the reader’s attention before exploring the topic futher and discussing the history of food as it relates to overconsumption and. how eating habits can be changed to reflect.

When I heard of this book, subtitled, "A Guide to Conscious Eating" I was intrigued. The first section, Food Matters, lays down the reasons we need to shift from meat and processed foods to vegetables, fresh produce, legumes and beans. Knowing his interest in food and cooking I figured this would be a good book, respectful of foods and flavors, with good recipes. The first part of the book discussed the environmental cost of eating meats and highly-processed foods. If you've already read Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma or In Defense of Food, this information won't be new to you.

Bittman, a food writer who loves to eat and eats out frequently, lost thirty-five pounds and saw marked improvement in his . This recipe book simply gives everyone a sensible guide to eating GOOD, HEALTHY, NOURISHING food.

If you take it the right way, this is really a fine cookbook. What Bittman is looking for is a nearly Buddhist middle way. He is not a vegetarian, although he strongly believes we should eat in ways that are kinder to the the planet and other animals. We should eat a good deal less meat, and we should treat the animals who died to make our meals with more respect. He is not a fanatic, but he is concerned about the health implications of what we eat. If we are going to be successful in many ways, we have to come up with food that we will enjoy eating and we can cook. All of this is a tall order, and he does an admirable job in pulling it off.

Before others jump in with one star reviews (oops, too late). There are no pictures in this book (there are plenty of other cookbooks with pictures and probably some you can color in) and out of close to 600 pages I am sure there is the odd typo, although I have made several recipes and have yet to find one. This is a very good book of recipes, tutorials and some really interesting side dicsussions.

I am a child of the 80's... raised on Nintendo and Hostess. I've been trying to make healthier meals for my family, but I just don't know where to start. This book has been a wonderful help. It's easy to understand, there aren't a bunch of ingredients I've never heard of, and my kids will eat what I've made and enjoy it! So Happy!

What I love about this is that I'm an experimenter (never cook anything the same way twice) and the author provides lots of cool variations on recipes to try. I bought this for myself because the book Food Matters was excellent but didn't have enough recipes in it. I'm on a whole foods diet at the moment for physical training and these recipes are super healthy.

The book "Food Matters: a Conscious Guide to Eating" by Mark Bittmann is an intersection between a guide to food ethics and politics, a sensible outline of dietary guidelines promoting good eating habits, and a cookbook. The indices are divided between research and recipes, making the book much more easily searchable. I like my research to come with a good bibliography and the info on the ills of the food industry and nutritional research in the US are provided in readible prose, that does not require deep industry knowledge. Some of the material overlaps with Michael Pollan's book, Omnivore's Dilemma.

I like Bittman's approach to recipes. He provides a basic recipes and then a few ways to spice things up - so to speak. It is a practical approach to cooking that follows my own approach--read a few recipes, see what the basic recipe is, see what variations can be done and then pick and chose. This approach usually requires some knowledge of spices and cooking--but Bittman makes that easy by providing the basics and a few variations to get you started.

I think it is a pretty darn good book. Hope that this helps.

There are so many recipes and shopping tips in this book. I love the grocery lists and pantry essentials so you can buy healthy food on a budget. It also teaches you how to buy meat, seafood and produce. There are recipes varying from simple to more time consuming, depending on your cooking abilities. I've heard comments on other sites saying that this book (and the documentary) are setting people up to by the whole Food Matters food line. But honestly, you can buy and make everything yourself. There's no need to by the shakes and powders. I've found all the ingredients at health food stores, and even Costco. This book is awesome.

I have been off and on using Mark Bittman's VB6 diet. I was looking for more recipes that would not totally ruin my daily progress and would have some real taste to the food. I found that this cookbook does both for me. The recipes are easy to do and not only appealing to the eye but they taste good also. Would recommend this book to both dieters and non-dieters alike.

This book has so many practical recipes to use in everyday cooking. There are basic recipes like making granola, and others that originate from around the world. Mark Bittman provides us with recipes for many exotic spice mixtures. I have found his suggestions useful and recipes practical for limiting the impact of animal products. Beans, whole grains and lots of fresh vegetables are used widely in the recipes. This is now a bargin priced book that would complement any cook's library. There are so many recipes for snacking, dips, soups vegetables, main courses and desserts. Not only are these recipes healthy for the body, they are packed with flavor.
