Book Resources for Further Study

May 18th, 2009 No comments

Here is a list of book I’ve researched for info about fruit, diet, ecology, and feeding the world.  In the comment section, please list related books that you’ve read.  We can help educate each other.

May All Be Fed:  Diet For A New World, by John Robbins.  John shows that a meat-based diet directly contributes to world hunger.  He also wrote Diet For A New America.

The 80/10/10 Diet, by Douglas N. Graham.  Doug has lived on a fruit based diet for years, and is a lifelong athlete.  He has coached elite athletes from around the world. 

The China Study, by Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Thomas M. Campbell II.  Based on the huge China Research Study, this book shows the benefits of a plant-based diet.  You can dramatically reduce your risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. 

Gorgeously Green

Gorgeously Green



Gorgeously Green, by Sophie Uliano.  Sophie speaks specifically to women in her highly rated Eco-Diet book.  Her subtitle is “8 Simple Steps to an Earth Friendly Life”.

Go Green, Get Lean, by Kate Geagan.  The subtitle is “Trim Your Waistline with the Ultimate Low-Carbon Footprint Diet”.  Kate has some super info on eco-friendly food choices.  She is from my home state of Utah.    

Quote from Go Green, Get Lean:  “If your diet consists of lifeless, heavily processed and refined foods, odds are you, too, will feel lifeless.  On the other hand, if your diet includes lots of vibrant foods teeming with nutrition and enzymes, you too will feel more vibrant and alive.  It’s that simple.”

The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan.  Michael explores the roots of the food system in America.  He finds that thousands of our food “products” are all made from corn!  It gets scary from there, but I’ll let you read it yourself.

Edible Forest Gardens, by Dave Jacke.  This book is not a really easy read.  Dave explains the benefits of growing with a polyculture (many plants) rather than a monoculture.  This particular book is for temperate climates, although forest gardens work for tropical climates also.

Hope’s Edge:  The New Diet for a Small Planet, by Frances Moore Lappe and Anna Lappe.  Frances wrote the first Diet for a Small Planet 30 years ago.  This time Frances and her daughter Anna travel the world looking for grassroots food movements.  They find many, from Brazil to Bangladesh, that will put Hope in your heart.
