Cool food : erasing your carbon footprint one bite at a time / Robert Downey Jr. & Thomas Kostigen.


"What we eat matters -- to us, and to the planet. Cool food is a game-changing new food category and way of thinking that can help fix the climate. This . . . book will show you how to make simple choices, starting today -- in the supermarket, in your kitchen, and in the world -- to reduce your environmental impact. Hundreds of cool foods exist, but until now have gone largely uncelebrated for their climate-positive powers. Some of these foods may already be on your shelf, and some are just on the horizon. But cool food is much more than just a shopping list: it's a way of life vitally important to our future. Packed with eye-opening information, actionable items, and two dozen . . . recipes, Cool Food comes alive with . . . storytelling and refreshing humor." -- Provided by publisher
