The Mindful Carnivore with Tovar Cerulli

Many Nourished Kitchen readers come to traditional, real foods after vegan- and vegetarianism in searching for a diet and lifestyle that combines ethics, sustainability with health, nutrition and tradition.  This week, I chat with Tovar Cerulli, author of the Mindful Carnivore: A Vegetarian’s Hunt for Sustenance.

In reading the Mindful Carnivore and in speaking with Tovar, I was struck with how similar his experience was to many of Nourished Kitchen’s longtime readers who begin to find renewal, community and even spirituality in their approach to foods.

    Jenny, thanks for this interview~ I was a veg*an for 10 yrs as well and went back to eating meats (about 20 years ago). The thing that surprised me at the time was the intense craving that was triggered in my body from my first bite. It was as if I had been starving and didn’t know it. I couldn’t get enough. These feelings lasted about three months as I recall. Also, I love that Tovar raises the issue of moral ambiguity. It is a complicated world that we live in, and this point cannot be stressed enough, especially when our good and right choices lead us to believe that we capable of moral purity from within and without. We are indeed participating members of a larger ecosystem, and it is right that we participate. Michael Pollan’s book, Second Nature, also captures this well.

    thanks again, Jenny, and Tovar~ I look forward to reading the book!
