About Rynn Berry

Rynn Berry (January 31, 1945 – January 9, 2014) was an American activist and author of books about vegetarianism. Berry wrote a chapter on the history of the raw food movement for Becoming Raw: The Essential Guide to Raw Vegan Diets, principally written by Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina. He also co-authored, with Chris Abreu-Suzuki, an annual Vegan Guide to New York City, the first exclusively vegetarian guidebook. Rynn Berry's books have been translated into many languages and were reedited numerous times. His book Famous Vegetarians and their Favorite Recipes (1993, 2003) has been compared to Howard Williams's classic The Ethics of Diet. Besides his books, he also wrote entries on vegetarianism and related issues for the Oxford Encyclopedia of American Food and Drink and The Oxford Companion to Food and Drink in America, as well as many articles and interviews published in vegetarian-themed magazines.

Quotes By Rynn Berry

Quote Of The Day

No, I'm not a vegetarian. I do eat that way. I actually eat vegan quite a lot. I feel better when I eat that way, and I think there's been a lot of proof that's come up over the last however many years, that you can't deny, I don't think, that meat or dairy aren't all that good for us.
