The Environmental Diet

Daniel Öhman, Maximillian Lundin

Recipes for a sustainable planet and a healthier life. Or how to switch from being a meat eater to being a vegan.

The idea for this book arose from a simple theory: that the food that is good for the earth might also be the food that is the best for our bodies. If we cut down on meat, eat more fruit and vegetables, buy organic ingredients, follow the seasons in our choice of vegetables and use less sugar, what will be the effects on the environment and our waistlines?

The result was amazing. This book takes you on Daniel Öhman’s journey from being a major consumer of meat to leading an almost vegan life-style, gaining more energy, and losing irritating excess kilos on the way.

It also contains shocking reports on the effects of today’s large-scale food production on the environment.

Chef Maximillian Lundin’s recipes provide step by step guidance on how to gradually change your diet and all the dishes can be made in three ways: vegan, vegetarian with a touch of egg and milk products or with a touch of meat or fish – leaving it up to you just how far you want to go with the diet.

One thing is for sure anyway – the food will taste better, you’ll have more energy and you’ll be healthier. And maybe we’ll even save the planet too!

Daniel Öhman is an investigative reporter at Radio Sweden. He is one of Sweden’s most award-winning journalists and the only one to have received The Swedish Grand Prize for Journalism two years in a row.

Maximilian Lundin is a chef, consultant and a lecturer specializing in organic and sustainable production and consumption. In autumn 2015 he opened Stockholm’s first wholly organic and vegan restaurant.
