"The Food Matters Cookbook" is the essential encyclopedia and guidebook to responsible eating, with more than 500 recipes that capture Mark Bittman’s typically relaxed approach to everything in the kitchen. There is no finger-wagging here, just a no-nonsense and highly flexible case for eating more plants while cutting back on animal products, processed food, and of course junk. Since his own health prompted him to change his diet, Bittman has perfected cooking tasty, creative, and forward-thinking dishes based on vegetables, fruits, and whole grains. Meat and other animal products are often included--but no longer as the centerpiece.
