Relocated from suburban Arizona to rural Appalachia, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle follows the first year of the family's experiment. Discarding processed, factory - farmed foods transported long distances, in favour of growing their own food, they set out to prove that a local diet is better for the economy, the environment and the soul. Part memoir, part journalistic investigation, and full of original recipes, "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" is a passionate case for putting the kitchen back at the centre of family life, and diversified farms at the centre of our diet.

    This book has movtivated me to plant my veggie garden again next year and continue my CSA subscription. I'm also rethinking my food purchases in a restaurant and in the grocery store. She makes a good point that we'll spend money on expensive clothes, shoes, cars, etc. but complain when we have to pay a little extra for local sustainably produced food . What's wrong with our priorities; especially when it comes to our children.
