    1. Three powerful strengths to this book: 1) It encourages you to begin with small changes. 2) It provides concrete steps to take and a thoughtful consideration for real questions (what kind of container should I use? what kind of cleaning products are safe?). And 3) it gives advice for apartment-dwellers.That last one is really important for me. I have been reading a lot of stuff about gardening and sustainability and homesteading, and far and away the biggest challenge is apartment living. You do [...]

    2. If you are concerned about food production and how we will sustain our food supplies for the future, then this book, The Natural Kitchen, by Deborah Eden Tull, is for you. With chapters on shopping guidelines, food recycling, "Green Menu Planning", growing food in our own backyards, and how to eat to sustain our own bodies and lives, this book is chock full of useful information to transform yourself into a "sustainable food revolutionary". I especially like the chapter on "The Peaceful Kitchen" [...]

    3. Really nice read around what the sustainable food revolution REALLY looks like on all levels - on a personal, spiritual level, on a consumer level, and on an in-the-dirt level. The author draws on years of experience cooking and growing food at a Zen Monastery and I love that her appreciation for food and sustainable innovation is so peaceful and uplifting in nature. There wasn't a ton in here that was new to me, but her framing (drawing on her background) makes things pleasant. It's a good star [...]

    4. 2.5 stars---This book is good for beginners at sustainability, or people interested in making their kitchens eco-friendly. I like how it covers things like cookware and using leftovers. If you're already into the sustainability movement, this book will probably not cover any new ground for you.

    5. The author lived in a monastery for a period time, with a no-waste kitchen, excellent garden, and a high degree of mindfulness. While I'm not a master of "preparing one meal a week to eat in silence," she had some good points about no-waste kitchens and eating well.

    6. I enjoyed an almost 2 hour workshop/talk by the author at the Ecology Center. The book offers in a sense mindfulness training in all areas of our lives around growing food, shopping, cooking, and eating.

    7. An inspiring, informative book that doesn't pander to people who just want a quick fix for environmental issues. This book requires you to go deep, and it's totally worth it.

    8. No great new insights, but a valuable book for those who know nothing about minimizing waste, carbon footprint and eating healthfully. I donated my copy to the library.

    11. Interesting information and much food for thought. It got me to think about many of the products/items I use everyday and to investigate their safety. The content was not what I expected.
