Now, Bittman is taking up a bigger cause than dinner: The way Americans eat, he says, is killing themselves and the planet. Too much meat. Too much junk food. Too big a footprint.

Just a little change, he says — vegan ‘til 6pm, ‘til dinner — could save our waistlines, our health, and the planet.

This hour, On Point: A save-the-Earth manifesto — with recipes — from food maven Mark Bittman.

You can join the conversation. Is Mark Bittman already your go-to-guy for recipes? For food advice? Are you ready to follow him onto earth-friendly terrain at the table?Guest:

Mark Bittman, food columnist for The New York Times. He writes "The Minimalist" column and the "Bitten" blog. His new book is "Food Matters: A Guide to Conscious Eating."
