OMD: Swap One Meal a Day to Save the Planet and Your Health Reviews

  • Shari  Gonzales

    Well written and full of excellent information. It is a great basis for someone looking to start a plant based eating plan.

  • Amanda Ng

    The book was simple and engaging. Plant base diets are better for every persons health and the planet. The core message is repeated throughout out the book. If this books doesn't get you to try more a plant base diet nothing will.

    There a ton of recipe to help you get started as well as a list of foods to get your pantry started. It really takes all the thinking for you. But the only downside is its an American author meant for American readers so it might be a problem getting some of the things

    But overall its a concise books that waste no time and a comprehensive read for anyone who always wondered if going plant base is worth it.

    Loved this informative, alarming, and ultimately inspiring book.

  • Lartemis

    Has just a browse through this one. I'm big on eating less meat in an effort to use fewer natural resources (raising cattle takes huge amounts of water). I wanted to see how the author dealt with this topic

  • Micah

    Some good motivation if you are having a hard time giving up meat. It reminded me that the reason there are no wolves in Utah & Idaho is because of cattle ranchers. This helped me give up meat for good. I want the wolves back so the rivers can return to their natural flow and I don't have to worry about hitting deer when I am driving and we don't have to spend millions of dollars on an animal footbridge over I 80! Just bring the wolves back and they will take care of everything!

  • Sofia Lynd

    I loved this book! Not only was it well-written (for someone with no literary background, Amis Cameron is a really great writer!) and entertaining, it was well-researched with medical and scientific facts anyone could understand!

    Having already gone plant-based myself, and having watched the big documentaries (“Forks over knives” and “What the health”), this book was not as revolutionary to me as it might be to some other people. But it absolutely motivated me to stay on my path, and it was full

    Having already gone plant-based myself, and having watched the big documentaries (“Forks over knives” and “What the health”), this book was not as revolutionary to me as it might be to some other people. But it absolutely motivated me to stay on my path, and it was full of information, facts, and data that are great for backing up your arguments when talking to meat-eaters. I also loved that Amis Cameron allowed for “slips”, that you don’t have to be all or nothing to call yourself plant-based, and that “sinning” every once in a while is all right.

    My only complaint would be that it was a little repetitive. Some information returned again and again. But it’s still a book I will recommend to...well, everyone, really. The planet, and our health, needs it!

  • Sarah

    Technically, I knew most of this (hence why I'm vegan), but for someone contemplating even reducing how many animal products you have in your diet, this walks you really well through the why and the how in an easy-to-understand format and writing style. Complete with recipes at the end.

  • Barbara

    This book is a good idea for those in the beginning stages of wanting to eat a plant-based program in order to improve their health, shrink their waistline, and help save the planet. A little too basic for me, as I am quite knowledgeable already, but interesting reading nonetheless. There were some good recipes, but most of them seemed very basic and for the beginner crowd.

  • Shelley

    Written at about a fifth grade level with a gee-whiz take on the science. I guess if you've never taken a science course, read an international news source, or been alive after 1995, then maybe this is all a big surprise? But probably not.

    There's nothing wrong with the idea of one plant-based meal a day; I don't like to eat meat, but am allergic to nuts and almost all seeds, so one more recipe involving sunflower seeds and cashews isn't helpful. At all. Also, a book with decent ideas that's pre

    There's nothing wrong with the idea of one plant-based meal a day; I don't like to eat meat, but am allergic to nuts and almost all seeds, so one more recipe involving sunflower seeds and cashews isn't helpful. At all. Also, a book with decent ideas that's predicated on logical fallacies is still a book predicated on logical fallacies.

    I actually had no idea who Suzy Amis Cameron was before this, but fortunately she reminded me on every other page about her career or that of her husband (you know, *that* James Cameron). There are celebrities who write (or cause to have written) highly entertaining and humble books. This isn't one of them.
