Overview
Brian Kateman coined the term "Reducetarian"--a person who is deliberately reducing his or her consumption of meat--and a global movement was born. In this book, Kateman, the founder of the Reducetarian Foundation, presents more than 70 original essays from influential thinkers on how the simple act of cutting 10% or more of the meat from one's diet can transform the life of the reader, animals, and the planet. This book features contributions from such luminaries as Seth Godin, Joel Fuhrman, Victoria Moran, Jeffrey Sachs, Bill McKibben, Naomi Oreskes, Peter Singer, and others. With over 40 vegan, vegetarian, and "less meat" recipes from bestselling cookbook author Pat Crocker, as well as tons of practical tips for reducing the meat in your diet (for example, skip eating meat with dinner if you ate it with lunch; replace your favorite egg omelet with a tofu scramble; choose a veggie burrito instead of a beef burrito; declare a meatless day of the week), The Reducetarian Solution is a life--not to mention planet --saving book.

Kateman, president of the nonprofit Reducetarian Foundation, writes that he launched it in 2014 when he realized that many people, like himself, were committed to eating less meat without becoming card-carrying vegans or vegetarians. That said, reducetarianism includes the latter two groups, and is meant to unite the growing community of individuals who are committed to eating less meat. This book is an illuminating collection of 70 brief, pithy essays written by thought leaders in the food realm, including authors, researchers, educators, and even a stand-up comedian. Divided into three sectionsMind, Body, and Planetthey cover such diverse topics as the evils and ills of factory farming and the joys of packing tasty vegetarian treats for a childs lunch. A Buddhism expert presents spiritual arguments for reducing meat consumption; another author describes food waste parties where meatless leftovers are served. The bulk of the essays eschew meat-shaming and lean toward baby steps (i.e., meatless Mondays) and non-judgmental attitudes. This eclectic compendium (including recipes) will inspire and educate the curious and reticent, as well as those who are already, in some way, walking the reducetarian path.
