Paul McCartney and daughters Stella and Mary McCartney will publish the family's latest cookbook. The new Linda McCartney’s Family Kitchen, written by McCartney’s late-wife Linda, “Macca,” and their daughters, will be published on June 24th. The book promises “Over 90 plant-based recipes that save the planet and nourish the soul.⁣”

McCartney posted in a statement: “Years ago, before anyone had woken up to the idea of environmental and health and animal welfare issues, Linda was blazing the trail with vegetarianism, telling people about it and promoting it. In the book there are family photographs and stories from those days, and of course lots of great, beautiful tasting healthy recipes.”

Paul McCartney has long been one of the most vocal rockers to state that eating animals is not only bad for a human's health — but for the planet in general. He explained that the reasons that many people in the past shied away from a meat-free diet simply don't hold up anymore: “There are a million solutions. When Linda and I first started, there weren't so many. Nowadays, it's so easy. We had to worry about the nutrition to make sure we got enough protein. And my mum — who was a nurse — would've thought the only way to get protein was from animals, 'cause that was the thinking back then. In actual fact, when you look into it, there are a million ways. Uh, soya, obviously, is one of 'em. Lots of vegetables contain proteins. So, you can just look it all up. There's bags of information out there these days.”
