I recently finished reading The World Peace Diet. I thought it was extremely well written, and very informative. In this book, Dr. Will Tuttle talks about our relationship with our food from different angles. Morals, religion, ethics, traditions, etc. and our inter-connectedness we have with the animals that end up on our plates as well as with other humans. This book describes what changes we can make for ourselves, the animals, and the planet if we open our eyes to a new way of living through a compassionate diet. Whether you are religious or spiritual, if you are vegan, vegetarian, or omnivore, if care about animals, or if you just want a very informative book that will give you quite a few aha! moments that may make you think twice about the foods you serve your family, this book is a must read. There are also several heart-warming personal stories Dr. Tuttle shares. I highly recommend this book.
Here is a small excerpt from The World Peace Diet:
"When we cultivate mindful awareness of the consequences of our food choices and conscientiously adopt a plant-based way of eating, refusing to participate in the domination of animals and the dulling of awareness this requires, we make a profound statement that both flows from and reinforces our ability to make connections. We become a force of sensitivity, healing, and compassion. We become a revolution of one, contributing to the foundation of a new world with every meal we eat. As we share our ideas with others, we promote what may be the most uplifting and healing revolution our culture has ever experienced."
