My Year Without Meat
When he realised he had a meat addiction, award winning food writer Richard Cornish went vegetarian for a year. What he didn't realise were the changes that he would have to make to his life. He had to learn to cook from scratch, shop, plan meals and take time to understand the basics of nutrition. What he didn't realise were the positive changes vegetarianism would make to his weight, blood pressure, cholesterol and even his lifelong hayfever. My Year Without Meat is as humourous as it is dark, with the author shining the light on the ethics that surround our food production. A personal journey with many surprising twists and entertaining detours, it will make you change the way you look at your supermarket trolley and prepare the evening meal. With the added bonus of delicious recipes, this is a book for anyone with an interest in where their food comes from.
