Living Among Meat Eaters: The Vegetarian's Survival Handbook By Carol J. Adams

Living Among Meat Eaters: The Vegetarian's Survival Handbook



Carol Adams (The Sexual Politics of Meat), a writer and lecturer on vegetarianism, offers advice to practicing vegetarians about eating with omnivores. She covers everything from how to answer the question, "Are you a vegetarian?" to tips for dining out and handling meals in a business setting. She also includes a selection of favorite recipes, adapted from classic vegetarian cookbooks. Adams
that vegetarians today have it rough: "we see death in [meat eaters'] meals, they see it in ours. Attempts will be made to disempower your viewpoint. Your diet is the issue, but you become the target."
Point well made. Vegetarians indeed have far fewer options than omnivores at restaurants, at peoples' homes. And as Adams observes, they are often looked
down upon.

I've read it! It's encouraging! I need to read it again and use the tips more actively in my relations.

I think it's encouraging too, Arild. It's a great resource.
