5 Books 1 Theme - What We Eat

November for me started off with my first World Vegan Day on the 1st and I know that what we eat and how it is farmed is a headline topic at the moment. For this post, I've brough together five books I've read on the subject which address the issues from various perspectives. Four are nonfiction and one is fiction. Four are omnivorous and one is (mostly) vegan.
Food for thought over Christmas and for those New Year dieting challenges!

Have you read any of these five books? If so, what did you think?

Which other similar titles can you recommend for foodies?

  1. I couldn't go vegan! I love my meat and cheese too much I'm afraid!

    1. Before I went vegan I imagined I would miss cheese the most, but was surprised that after a couple of weeks I pretty much forgot about it. I rarely even bother with the vegan cheeses although some are apparently now very similar to their dairy counterparts. I've transferred my snack budget over to nuts and dried fruits (healthier & cheaper) and Bombay Mix (ok, not healthy, but cheap!)

    1. They're all interesting and cover a wide range of opinions and potential solutions

  3. I would go vegetarian in a heartbeat but my husband won't go for it. I like to make meals that we will both eat. I usually eat a tiny piece of the main course and focus on sides.

    1. My OH is a committed meat eater, but he's getting more and more fed up with the bland taste of meat these days. He says even the higher priced higher welfare stuff doesn't have the flavour it used to so that's prompting him to at least try my vegan meals! We have a few regulars that we eat together where the meat isn't obviously absent: Sweet & Sour Tofu, Lentil Dahl, and good old Vegetable Soup with fresh baked bread. I'm not keen on meat replacement products myself so prefer to raid global cuisines for inspiration :-)
