Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer GIVEAWAY!! 5 copies!!!


Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency. His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting.
Watch below as Jonathan speaks with Ellen about his new book.



Hard hitting and honest. This tour de force informs and delights, challenging us to explore what is to often conveniently brushed aside. Eating Animals is a story about the stories we've told and the stories we need to tell.

You can purchase a copy at Amazon.com, or ...

I'm currently trying to convert to veganism, and this seems perfect!

My favorite dish is something I bring for lunch almost everyday. I spread hummus on a pita, stuff in some fried eggplant patties, top with heirloom tomatoes and lettuce and done! delicious, fast, and vegan!

I have a recipe for okra fried rice which is just divine! I'm a stickler for organic produce though, so we don't get to eat this very often as organic okra has been hard to find around here. Anyway, the dish is full of spices and so tasty! Thanks for the chance!

I love vegetarian tacos--just beans and veggies.

My favorite vegan dish is pan-fried wide rice noodles with tons of veggies (shiitake mushrooms, baby corn, carrots, green onions) and a drizzle of dark soy sauce and sesame oil. Yummy!
