An Informative Guide on Sustainable Eating

New York, NY, August 18, 2013 --( "The Joy of Sustainable Eating," recently published by Thieme, is a simple, informative guide that is supported by UNESCO, the United Nations, and a wide range of sustainability experts. It features 130 easy-to-follow recipes for cooking sustainably, stressing fresh, seasonal foods that are not only nutritious and tasty but also support regional farmers. Tips for preparation and cooking that preserve the flavor and nutritional value of foods are also included.

“While major efforts at many levels, including the highest political ones, are required to improve food and nutrition security worldwide, each and every consumer can participate and contribute. This book, as ‘simple’ as it may seem, is of excellent help in this endeavor … We congratulate the authors for this ‘tasteful’ contribution to the issues of world hunger and its sustainable eradication.” -- From the Foreword by Alexander Mueller and Peter Glasauer, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations

Complete with luscious photographs, "The Joy of Sustainable Eating" demonstrates the tremendous benefits of healthy, conscious, close-to-the-source eating without sacrificing the pleasures of good food.
