In waves throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, new segments of the population became aware of the devastating consequences of our animal-centered diets. Frances Moore Lappe’s book, Diet for a Small Planet (1971), introduced many to the effects on the environment and human hunger, and interest in vegetarianism began to grow in middle class America. Laurel’s Kitchen (1976) examined the human health issues and nutritional considerations involved in planning a balanced vegetarian diet. This was followed by numerous successful cookbooks, such as Moosewood Cookbook (1977), which provided immensely appealing recipes using milk products and eggs along with plant foods. Soon people discovered that quiche, grilled cheese sandwiches, and three-cheese lasagna could contribute to weight gain and a rise in cholesterol as easily as a meatcentered diet. Because dairy products lack iron and interfere with absorption of this mineral, iron-deficiency anemia became a problem for some vegetarians who relied on dairy, rather then legumes, as primary protein sources. Nutrition textbooks of the day often included information about vegetarian diets in the “fad diet” section of the book. Reader were cautioned that vegetarianism was risky and even downright dangerous for children.
