Advanced Praise for Eat Less Water

Writing a book is a lot like baking bread. It takes time, patience, and faith to transform the flour, water, and yeast from a sticky mess into one smooth mound of dough ready to rise.

Eat Less Water is ready to rise off the page and become a vehicle for positive change, but it needs the momentum of a community to propel it forward. One powerful way for booksellers to feel the momentum is with pre-orders. If buyers for retailers like Amazon and Barnes and Noble see strong pre-order numbers ahead of the release date, they increase their initial order. Pre-sales drive books to the top of bestseller lists because ALL pre-orders count toward first-week sales.



We opened the box with the Eat Less Water Advanced Readers Copies as a family. The feeling of holding the book is tremendous, almost like giving birth; but this labor was much longer…7 years!

I’m humbled to have the endorsement of the following authors, activists, and changemakers:

Eat Less Water is as clever as its title. It’s a thoughtful book complete with recipes that are as good for your taste buds as they are for the planet. Read it and learn. Read it and eat. Read it as a reminder that our world’s most precious resource is in jeopardy– and yet we can do something about it. Read it to find out how.”

Eat Less Water is an informative, loving tribute to the source from which all life springs. Through explorations of food ranging from pasta to wine, Florencia Ramirez reveals how cultivation and consumption impact global water usage, sharing insights on how we, the eaters, can support a less-resource intensive practice in food and agriculture that is not only sustainable but delicious.”

This beautifully crafted and well-researched book is for anyone concerned about living healthfully, as well as living lightly, on this planet. Florencia Ramirez offers us a clear path to make every food purchasing decision count. As a physician working in nutrition and wellness, this book provides me even more valuable support for the case for a plant-based diet. If we are truly interested in our most vibrant heath, in the health and well-being of our children, we must focus on sustainable, organic, toxin-free practices. All readers, wherever their knowledge base on the subject, will find much to stimulate their thinking in Eat Less Water

Eat Less Water is eloquent and factual and reading it left an aftertaste in my mouth that I long to stay forever. Savory food recipes, at the end of each chapter, helps the eater see cooking with a new lens.  Florencia Ramirez helped me see how life-affirming water is a way to cleanse the soul and the heart.

    What a great idea Mona! I don’t think most people realize that you can request your library to place a preorder…I know I didn’t. Do you know if you need to go to the library to request the book or can you call your local library?
