She taught college and university psychology courses for more than a decade.
Author of the book High Steaks: Why and How to Eat Less Meat (New Society, 2012), Eleanor believes it is possible to transform our meat-centred diets, and to eat in ways that are good for health, for climate, and for ecosystems. Her newest book, now available, is Mobilize Food! Wartime Inspiration for Environmental Victory Today. Based on the stirring history of British food transformation in World War II, the book shows that food systems can change, people can change, and that in crisis we are capable of greatness.
