Showing of reviews. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. One-star reviews of this book seem to focus on whether recent science has disproved some of its assertions, or whether the recipes are any good.

There’s even a somewhat vituperative stream on climate change, diet links to blood groups, and other contentious issues. For me, these are essentially peripheral and miss the point. I have spent most of my professional life concerned with trying to improve people’s conditions in developing countries. So what resonated with me was the theme that America’s devotion to excess protein has severe adverse implications not just for how the rest of the world eats but also on much broader issues such as food security, international trade and balance of payments.


Of course, it would be comforting to be sure that the author’s statements are rigorous and based on fact I’m an engineer, and we prefer to avoid vague assertions. But ultimately whether, for example, protein complementarity is valid is of less importance than the general principle that we need to eat lower down the food chain, and that there are excellent ways of doing so without necessarily becoming a complete vegetarian.

The 20th Edition is now itself over 20 years old, and doubtless outdated in many ways, but it serves to spark inquiry and debate about a very important subject – and along the way provides some recipes well worth exploring! Allen Smalling Top Contributor: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase. Many “vegetarian” or “vegan” cookbooks teach in terms of substitute proteins — what I call the “tofurkey” approach that focuses on replacing animal meats with imitations and analogs.

It was Frances Moore Lappe’s great gift to us to throw out the concept that something called an “entree” must center the dinner table, whether or not said entree consisted of meat, fish, molded lentils or whatever. Instead, she focuses on protein complementarities, the technique of melding vegetable sources with incomplete amino acids into full proteins for example, corn and legume beans; milk and peanuts. It’s a wonderful way to think, plan, and cook; as a result this wonderful little book has braved the test of time and is now in its third decade.

This is very useful for students or This book is very informative, especially about how to eat meatless meals, yet get all the protein you need. It has many recipes for dishes which you can make without meat but which are protein-rich. This is very useful for students or others on a small budget who can’t afford to buy a lot of meat. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is the first vegetarian cookbook I purchased, back inwhen I first explored going vegetarian. My paper copy is getting very tattered and worn so a new copy for my Kindle was warrented.

There are many favorite recipes in this book that helped my family transition to vegetarianism. Though my husband never fully made that transition, he enjoyed many of these dishes.

Diet for a Small Planet

This is the little book that started me on my way to becoming vegan back in the 70s. It’s a beautiful little book and it deserves to be on everyone’s shelf. Recipes are basic and fundamental as are the principles. Have the original book and now have the year anniversary issue to see what Francis Moore Lappe learned along the way!


Using some of the info in my health coaching business, too! One person found this helpful. As a life long vegetarian I have used this book since it first was published, and it z now worn out from heavy use. I enjoy the simplicity of the info and directions in the recipe.

Great for anyone who likes good, frqnces, easy to prepare food. This was a housewarming gift for a vegetarian, leaving home for the first time. I used this book like a bible when my kids were vegetarians during their growing years. Franves is still as good and as useful in helping ensure balanced nutrition with a meat free diet!
