In his new book "The Food Matters Cookbook: 500 Revolutionary Recipes for Better Living," New York Times food writer Mark Bittman urges Americans toward a more plant-based diet.
Bittman takes on factory farming and the health impacts of a diet too heavy on meat and processed foods, but where others leave us to figure out how to change our habits, Bittman provides recipes for a healthy and environmentally sustainable diet.
Host: Michael Krasny
