Middleton shares how easy it can be to make simple changes to our diets that will add up to massive changes in our food system."—John Mackey, co-CEO and founder, Whole Foods Market
"Whether to go vegetarian or vegan, or simply eat more meatless meals, more people are interested in plant-based eating. Kristie Middleton's new book, MeatLess, helps show how simple-and enjoyable-it can be while offering tips to make it easy. I hope it's a massive success."—Tal Ronnen, founder and chef Crossroads, author of New York Times bestseller, The Conscious Cook
"If you are the student waiting for the teacher to appear, Kristie Middleton is it! Take this journey with her and you'll find yourself lifted in every way-body, mind, and soul."
—Kathy Freston, New York Times bestselling author of Quantum Wellness, The Lean, and The Book of Veganish
"If we want to create a more compassionate world, we have to give people the tools to make it easy. While everyone might not be ready to go vegan or vegetarian, Kristie Middleton's book MeatLess provides insight into how individuals can make small changes that add up to making a big difference for their health, the planet, and animals."—Gene Baur, bestselling author of Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds About Animals and Food and Living the Farm Sanctuary Life, and co-founder and president of Farm Sanctuary
"Packed with information and delivered in a friendly, non-judgmental voice, MeatLess is an indispensable guide for anyone seeking a more health-, planet-, or animal-friendly way of living."—Jonathan Balcombe, author of What a Fish Knows
"Meat-free eating is gaining in popularity with more and more people opting to eat less meat for their health, the environment, and animals. This book is not only timely, but I can't think of anyone better positioned to provide this guidance than Kristie Middleton, who has been an HSUS leader successfully promoting meatless options at institutions across America."
—Wayne Pacelle, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Humane Society of the United States and author of New York Times bestsellers The Bond and The Humane Economy
A growing number of Americans are looking to eat healthier, plant-based diets, but often don't know where to start. MeatLess provides the foundation for why it's important to make these changes as well as how to begin making the transition. Kristie Middleton's unique approach not only examines barriers to diet changes, but offers solutions for overcoming them, making this a powerful tool."—Miyoko Schinner, author of Artisan Vegan Cheese, The Homemade Vegan Pantry, and founder of Miyoko's Kitchen
"MeatLess is the perfect incarnation of my maxim, 'Don't do nothing because you can't do everything. Do something. Anything!' Kristie expertly and compassionately guides you in your journey to do something - which happens to be the most significant something you can do for yourself, the animals, and the planet."—Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, bestselling author of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge and The Joy of Vegan Baking
"This work is perfectly timed. Just look at the Journal of American Medical Association from September 1, 2016. There is an analysis of the correlation of animal consumption and dying - relative to vegetable protein, all animal products produce cancer deaths, heart disease deaths, or both. Changing our entire health system from 'sickcare' to 'healthcare' is suddenly more critical than ever. One can imagine down the road that every patient who develops heart disease or cancer after a hospitalization would sue that institution and its staff for ignoring the peer-reviewed literature and bringing a food tray with our usual hospital food menu. Let's change it now. It's time to turn liability into opportunity!"
—Kim Allan Williams, Sr., MD, The James B. Herrick, MD, Professor of Heart Research; Chief, Division of Cardiology, Rush Medical College
