About the book
Recipes, tips and ideas to help you eat well, pay less and save the planet. Created by young people, The Green Teen Cookbook contains over 80 mouth-watering recipes that won’t cost the earth.
Going green is hard to do – especially when it comes to food. The Green Teen Cookbook cuts through all that chaos and shows teens how to shop smarter, cook more consciously, and eat a healthier diet. And in addition to the incredible recipes (created for teens, by teens), the book also includes:
• Tips on how to shop on a budget and get the most out of what you already have at home
• A seasonal key that ensures the freshness of the recipes (and a minimal carbon footprint)
• Essays on ethical eating, and photos for all the recipes
For all those who care about what they eat, and where it comes from, The Green Teen Cookbook is more than just another set of recipes: it’s an all-in-one guide for going green and eating well.
‘The perfect antidote to our takeaway crazy food habits and will help kick the air mile addiction…a good balance between presenting the opinions for ethical eating without being a preachy bible of eco warriorism.’ Miriam Chapman for Refer Plus www.referplus.org.uk
‘This is real cooking…a revolutionary little gem in its own right… This is quite political. And so it should be. What really matters is what’s going on at ground level…the writers are real teens… there is no talking down… it’s appealing, lively, and makes you want to try the recipes.’ thesinglegourmettraveleller.wordpress.com
‘This fabulous cookbook has been shortlisted for The People’s Book Prize and been featured in The Sunday Times Oxford Literary Festival and in the Gourmand Magazine. This cookbook and rough guide to ethical eating is not just for teens though, it’s for everyone who wants to eat well, pay less and save the planet! My soon to be 12 y/o loved this book…a great gift for teenagers of all ages and has great advice for everyone to live by. I’ve cooked some of the recipes from it and they taste delicious!’ @NotAllAboutBoys
‘a basic guide to cooking in-season, environmentally sound produce and seriously delicious food – all on a budget…kudos to The Green Teen Cookbook for converting me from a reluctant cook (as my parents will tell you) to someone who actually quite liked the feeling of preparing a meal!’ utterlyscrummyblogspot.co.uk
‘The Green Teen Cookbook should accompany older teens in college, first apartments, or any newly independent living situations. Parents will appreciate the emphasis on global awareness and healthy foods—most recipes include a variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, all suitable for growing at home. Truly, anyone interested in incorporating fresher ingredients into a more mindful diet without sacrificing taste, creativity, and quality will enjoy The Green Teen Cookbook.’
