Going green is hard to do, especially when it comes to food. There are acronyms to learn, labels to decipher, seasons to accommodate, and grocery stores to navigate--and that's before you even turn on the stove! The Green Teen Cookbook cuts through the chaos and shows teens how to shop smarter, cook more consciously, and eat a healthier diet. And in addition to the 70+ incredible recipes (created by teens, for teens), the book also includes Illuminating essays about freeganism, flexitarians, vegetarianism, and more. You’ll learn how to shop on a budget, get the most out of what you already have, and information on seasonal ingredients. Eating locally grown, organic, and cruelty-free food is a laudable goal, but it's hard to achieve without some help. The Green Teen Cookbook provides that essential assistance. It's more than just a cookbook: It's an all-in-one guide for going green and eating well.
