My Favorite Books about Vegetable-Based Living

1. The Jungle, by Upton Sinclair
2. Slaughterhouse, by Gail A. Eisnitz
3. The Food Revolution, by John Robbins
4. The China Study, by T. Colin Campbell - I'd get the audio version as it's so long
5. Veganomicon, by Isa Chandra Moskowitz
6. The Omnivore's Dilemma, by Michael Pollan
7. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, by Barbara Kingsolver - beautiful book, and one that many vegans might not recommend, but I see Kinsolver and her family as taking responsibility for their diet. While it isn't my choice, I respect the choices Kingsolver made.
8. Food Politics, by Marion Nestle - this one really gave me the motivation to take actions agains factory farming.
9. Silent Sprint, by Rachel Carson - I read this at school and it started to change my perspective on everything
10. Becoming Vegan, by Brenda Davis

Bonus = Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, by Janisse Ray - this book has nothing to do with food, but speaks of our relationship with our world, and the responsibility we have to protect our land. It's an easy read, and redirected my focus in the study of interior design and architecture. Janisse was a writer in residence at my University, so I have a special place for her books.
