The Carnivore’s Manifesto: Eating Well, Eating Responsibly, and Eating Meat

We rated this book:


Most humans eat meat, a fact that is unlikely to change anytime soon. This book asserts that, not only should we eat it, but that we should even eat more of it – but only when it is sustainably and humanely grown and harvested. Author Patrick Martins, founder of Heritage Foods USA and Slow Food USA, offers a comprehensive set of solutions to reclaim healthy, delicious, ethical food. For example, Martins urges everyone to get to know their butcher, farmer, baker, grocer – to have a personal relationship with their food and to know where it comes from and how it was raised. To eat the best food you can afford and to celebrate it. To learn to cook, and to slow down. He encourages everyone to eat ground meat, which supports the local farmers who are trying to raise animals responsibly. His is an excellent case for taking back forgotten foodways from industrial megafarms which are destroying our environment, our health, and our humanity. It is a call to action, well-written, funny, edgy, unapologetic, entertaining, and perfectly possible; not elitist, but with steps achievable by anyone who loves food and wants to eat in a healthy, humane, sustainable way.
