Summary

Summary

Protest Kitchen is an empowering guide to the food and lifestyle choices anyone can make for positive change in the face of the profound challenges of our time.

Our food choices have much more of an impact than most people imagine. They not only affect our personal health and the environment, but are also tied to issues of justice, misogyny, national security, and human rights. Protest Kitchen is the first book to explore the ways in which a more plant-based diet challenges regressive politics and fuels the resistance.

A provocative and practical resource for hope and healing, Protest Kitchen features over fifty vegan recipes (with alternatives for “aspiring vegans”) along with practical daily actions such as:

  • Substitute cow’s milk in your coffee and cereal for any of a variety of delicious non-dairy milks. This will help lower the release of methane gas that contributes to global warming.
  • Use a smartphone app when buying chocolate to avoid supporting African farmers who use child-labor, even child slavery, to supply cacao beans to the food industry.
  • Make your own cleaning supplies and wood polish; it’s frugal and avoids reliance on products that may be tested on animals.


Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

"Protest Kitchen unpacks the sordid truths associated with our current food system. With action steps and easy and delicious recipes, this book is much more than a cookbook. It will open your mind to how all forms of activism are connected to restructuring food culture.” David Carter, former NFL player and food justice activist
“A deeply insightful look at how our food choices can unintentionally support racism, sexism, environmental damage, and other social injustices. Dozens of delicious recipes make it easy to try meals with a lower injustice footprint.” David Robinson Simon, author of Meatonomics
A welcome challenge to the world’s most ignored social justice space—our own kitchens. Adams and Messina arm hungry advocates with the knowledge needed to bring trips to the grocery store into line with their values, all while providing practical mouth-watering cuisine to fuel bodies and souls.” Chris Sosa, senior editor, AlterNet
“The authors clearly show how personal choices can empower all individuals and make enormous differences not only for the animals and people involved, but also for society as a whole.” Marc Bekoff, author of Canine Confidential
“This powerful book illustrates how we can resist oppression and create a more just and compassionate world through conscientious food choices.” Gene Baur, author of Living the Farm Sanctuary Life
“Connecting powerful narratives with creative recipes, this book is a much needed gem for those ready to protest [and cook] against injustices such as speciesism, environmental racism, and misogyny. The personal [palate] is political!” Dr. A. Breeze Harper, editor of Sistah Vegan
