High Steaks: How and Why to Eat Less Meat

The following is an audio excerpt from the new audio book High Steaks: Why and How to Eat Less Meat by author Eleanor Boyle and narrated by Ann M. Richardson.

High Steaks: Why and How to Eat Less Meat takes a critical look at how North Americans consume meat and the long-term ecological problems that affect personal health and community well-being from those practices and points to progressive ways we can cut back on meat and also consume meat in a more sustainable and ecologically responsible manner.

Boyle departs from the traditional narrative of abstaining from eating meat to one that promotes education and awareness of meat production discussing topics such as climate change and food policy and in doing creates a more inclusive conversation. Boyle's expertise in sustainabiliy and food policy makes this often divisive topic one of balance, clarity and consideration.
