Think! Eat! Act! : A Sea Shepherd Chef's Vegan Cookbook
Think! Eat! Act! is a cookbook featuring the vegan food prepared on the Sea Shepherd ships' anti-whaling campaigns. Inspired by the Sea Shepherd's goal of protecting the animals that are victims of human cruelty, author and onboard chef Raffaella Tolicetti uses delicious vegan food to show readers that every action has a consequence, and that you can live both well and compassionately, even while facing the challenges of being an activist living on a ship. The recipes are mixed in with information about vegan nutrition and ocean activism and interviews about being on the front lines of animal defense, getting vegan food in prison, and more!

"To cook vegan for a multiethnic crew, motivated by an eco-animal rights passion, on a ship that flags the Jolly Roger. Those could be the ingredients of a Peter Greenaway movie. [...] thanks to a book like this one I can find the real reason that I am vegan, which is simply that animals are not ours to be eaten." --Paolo, Vegan Riot blog
