Peace Diet powerfully presents the connections between our current food choices and so many of the problems we face with our health, our environment, our politics, our society—and our spirits. Dr. Tuttle provides the understanding of why and how a change to a truly health
supporting—and life affirming—way of eating can enable us to thrive as individuals—and to survive as a society.

"This is one of those 'necessary' books. It is necessary that all people read it. It is a necessary catalyst for the transformation of human consciousness as it evolves from the domination and exploitation mindset to the paradigm of communion, cooperation, and reverence for all life. It casts a bright and warm light on the precious web of life and will open many hearts and minds to the joy of living a life of compassion and communion with all life."—Judy Carman, author, Peace to All Beings
Food is our most intimate and telling connection both with the living natural order and with our living cultural heritage. By eating the plants and animals of our earth, we literally incorporate them. It is also through this act of eating that we partake of our culture's values and paradigms at the most primal levels. It is becoming increasingly obvious, however, that the choices we make about our food are leading to environmental degradation, enormous human health problems, and unimaginable cruelty toward our fellow creatures.
Incorporating systems theory, teachings from mythology and religions, and the human sciences, The World Peace Diet
presents the outlines of a more empowering understanding of our world, based on a comprehension of the far-reaching implications of our food choices and the worldview those choices reflect and mandate. The author offers a set of universal principles for all people of conscience, from any religious tradition, that they can follow to reconnect with what we are eating, what was required to get it on our plate, and what happens after it leaves our plates.
The World Peace Diet
suggests how we as a species might move our consciousness forward so that we can be more free, more intelligent, more loving, and happier in the choices we make.
