From the Publisher:
Reduce Your Carbon Footprint with Green Cuisine

"Going green" has spread to the kitchen! Big Green Cookbook is the first comprehensive, climate-conscious cookbook, ideal for both culinary novices and experienced cooks. Food and health expert Jackie Newgent reveals simple, practical, and sometimes even money-saving solutions for choosing and preparing food in planet-pleasing ways. It has never been easier to create everyday meals that maximize flavor while minimizing your environmental impact. Inside you'll find:

  • A green kitchen checklist

  • Over 200 delicious, easy-to-prepare, seasonal recipes that feature fresh, all-natural foods

  • Guidelines for going organic and tips for buying locally

  • Nutrition information and earth-friendly cooking tips with every recipe

  • Clever, new techniques for low-carbon cooking

  • An eco-friendly shopping guide and seasonal produce guide

"The Big Green Cookbook shows you how deliciously easy it can be to reduce your carbon 'food' print. It's the perfect tool for anyone who wants to eat well and treat the earth right."
Ellie Krieger, host of Food Network's Healthy Appetite and author of The Food You Crave

"Big Green Cookbook is THE step-by-step guide for greening your kitchen and your cuisine. Packed with easy tips and fantastic recipes based on the best of the season, Jackie Newgent shows America how tasty green cuisine can be, and why it's so critical to our planet."
Kate Geagan, MS, RD, author of Go Green Get Lean

Jackie Newgent's eco-friendly strategies range from the fairly obvious (cook what's in season, lose the bottled water) to the innovative (cut foods thinner so they'll cook faster, turn off the oven before the cookies are done). In addition to dozens of creative tips, she offers 200 tempting recipes, many of them greener and leaner versions of old favorites, like burritos, bruschetta, and cheesecake, and some original creations, like Beet Carpaccio Salad and Papaya Pork.
