Protest Kitchen is an empowering guide to the food and lifestyle choices anyone can make for positive change in the face of the profound challenges of our time. Our food choices have much more of an impact than most people imagine. They not only affect our personal health and the environment, but are also tied to issues of justice, misogyny, national security, and human rights. Protest Kitchen is the first book to explore the ways in which a more plant-based diet challenges regressive politics and fuels the resistance.
A provocative and practical resource for hope and healing, Protest Kitchen features over 50 vegan recipes (with alternatives for aspiring vegans) along with practical daily actions to make a difference with our diets.
