    For years Mark Bittman has taught us to cook better and more simply. Since 2011, as a New York Times opinion columnist, he has helped us cut through the noise and rhetoric of food politics to become better consumers and citizens, joining a pantheon of food influencers, including Michael Pollan and Eric Schloss, who shape the way we talk about food. Mark Bittman made headlines three years ago when it was revealed that, for the first time, the New York Times opinion page would feature a food writer to help us make sense of the tangled webs of food, health, environment, politics, and culture. Mark was the teacher who helped us cut through the pretense of cooking. And as an opinion columnist, Mark has delighted us, enraged us, and inspired us to do more for ourselves and our world in the same no-nonsense style. In the tradition of his New York Times bestselling Food Matters, this book collects the best of his columns, updated to reflect the latest research and tied together with new material to give context. But this isn’t just a simple collection. Bittman is grouping pieces to show each of them in a new light—in some cases to show us how far we’ve come in just a few years and in some cases to show us the slow unfolding of stories as they have happened over time. What emerges is a collection that shows us the story of who we are as a nation of cooks, eaters, and voters, right now.

    Common sense tells us that in order to lose weight we must eat less and exercise more, but somehow we get stalled. We start on a weight-loss program with good intentions but cannot stay on track. Neither the countless fad diets nor the annual spending of $50 billion on weight loss products help us feel better or lose weight. Too many of us are in a cycle of shame and guilt. We spend countless hours worrying about what we ate or if we exercised enough and blaming ourselves for actions that we can’t undo. We are stuck in the past and unable to live in the present—the moment in which we do have the power to make changes in our lives. With Savor, world-renowned zen master Thich Nhat Hanh and Harvard nutritionist Dr. Lilian Cheung show us how to end our struggles with weight once and for all. Offering practical tools including personalized goal setting, a detailed nutrition guide, and a mindful living plan, the authors help us to uncover the roots of our habits and then guide us as we transform our actions. Savor teaches us how to easily adopt the practice of mindfulness and integrate it into eating, exercise, and all facets of our daily life so that being conscious and present becomes a core part of our being. It is the awareness of the present moment, the realization of why we do what we do, that enables us to stop feeling bad and start changing our behavior. Savor not only helps us achieve the healthy weight and well-being we seek, it also brings to the surface the rich abundance of life available to us in every moment.

    Kathy Freston wasn’t born a vegan. The bestselling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her thirties did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist—someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy’s shift toward this new life was gradual—she leaned into it—but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life. Effortless weight loss, reversal of disease, environmental responsibility, spiritual awakening—these are just a few of the ten profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices. Filled with compelling facts, stories of people who have improved their weight and health conditions as a result of making the switch, and Q&As with the leading medical researchers, Veganist concludes with a step-by-step practical guide to becoming a veganist, easily and gradually. It is an accessible, optimistic, and illuminating book that will change the way you eat forever.
