Description

Catherine Friend tackles the carnivore's dilemma, exploring the contradictions, nuances, questions, and bewildering choices facing today's more conscious meat-eaters. The Compassionate Carnivore is “perfect for people who would like to eat meat but have moral, ethical, or health concerns about doing so” (Marion Nestle, What to Eat). Based on her own personal struggle, Friend's original, witty take on the meat and livestock debates shows consumers how they can be healthy and humane carnivores, too.

Praise For The Compassionate Carnivore: Or, How to Keep Animals Happy, Save Old MacDonald’s Farm, Reduce Your Hoofprint, and Still Eat Meat

Bookslut.com, July 2009
“Friend presents a compelling case that there's plenty wrong with the way Americans eat meat. The Compassionate Carnivore is chock full of facts and well cited, drawing from a variety of sources. I applaud Friend's approach of finding balance between the extremes of mindless consumption and hyperawareness.”

Gastronomica magazine, summer issue
“Friend’s passion for farming and the fact that she continues to wrestle with her own recommendations add up to a readable, informative tale.”
