Making food that is both healthful and delicious—and easy on the planet—is way easier than you might think. It’s about relinquishing the stress of making the “right” choices and just focusing on making better ones. It’s being conscious of—but not obsessed with—how we eat. It’s knowing that converting to veganism is fine, but realistically, big change is possible if we all discover how good a bowl of beans with a little smoked pork can be.

As a chef, and then as a senior food policy advisor to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, Sam Kass became an expert on the ins and outs of deliciousness, nutrition, and sustainability. EAT A LITTLE BETTER: Good Flavor, Good Health, Better World (Clarkson Potter | April 17, 2018 | $32.50 | Hardcover) has more than ninety recipes for simple yet stunning food and thoughtful tips on how to hack your kitchen, home, and life.
