Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Rip Esselstyn, the Austin bestselling author of The Engine 2 Diet, is a triathlete, former firefighter and big-time advocate of plant-based eating. His regimen has fueled a nationwide interest in the connection between a plant-based diet and good health.

Esselstyn, who has teamed up with Austin-based Whole Foods Market as one of their Healthy Eating Partners, will appear tonight at the Park Lane store from 5 to 7 pm to sign copies of his book—conveniently on sale for $24.95.
