Book Description

Every day, Lindsay S. Nixon, author of the popular Happy Herbivore blog and cookbook series, is sent dozens of questions from readers about living a plant-based life: What do you do in social situations outside of the home? At restaurants? Potlucks? Weddings? What about traveling and vacation? How do you deal with negativity and naysayers? How do you talk to your family and friends about this way of life?

Nixon has put together a practical guide to address questions like these and to help with the many other challenges that come with a plant-based or vegan diet. Whether you’re already living the Happy Herbivore lifestyle or simply thinking of switching to a plant-based way of life, The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Your Questions Answered In One Book May 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I started the book this morning and finished before lunch. The book answered all the questions you might be searching for on The Happy Herbivore website. This book would be one I would definitely give to someone thinking about going plant based or who has general questions about a plant based lifestyle. Nonjudgmental and recognizes people may be at different stages when going plant based or living a plant based lifestyle. Not once did I feel while reading as if someone was attacking my beliefs or the the way I live based on my decision to not consume animals or their products. I point this out too because lately I feel while reading a lot of books on plant based lifestyles or veganism that we can be our own worst enemies and telling people how bad they are because they are not committed to the lifestyle enough. In this book you will realize that it is progress, not perfection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick Read and Good for Beginners May 14, 2014
By Megoola
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living is a good starting point for people who are interested in eating a meat-free and dairy-free diet without eating a bunch of fake things.

There are no recipes. It is about how to deal with external influences (social situations,etc.) and problem solving such as food substitutes and feeding kids.

If you have read books like the China Study or other heavy "sciency"books this will feel like a light read, If you feel well-grounded and know what you are doing, this book might be beneath your level of expertise. If you "know"what you are supposed to do but can't quite stick to it, reading this book may help.

It is a quick read. It only took me 2-3 hours split up over the last day or so. The conversational tone made me lose track of the time that I spent reading.

There is no "conclusion", after some troubleshooting topics--wham! appendix. Just like my review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical and Direct Advice May 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The doctors, scientists and documentaries may have convinced you about the benefits of whole food, plant based eating (WFPB). There is still a gap, however, between treating it as a diet plan and making it your lifestyle.

Lindsay Nixon is ready to show you the way. After years of developing Happy Herbivore, I'm sure that there is nothing about the WFPB lifestyle that she has not thought about or addressed with those who have asked.

In her easy to read and approachable style Lindsay has gathered together a "Best Of" collection of advice and resources to help those who are serious about making the change from the Standard American Diet to the WFPB lifestyle. From travel to resources, philosophies and "unmentionables", Lindsay doles out practical advise for every situation.

If you are not a Happy Herbivore fan already, I'm sure you will be by the time you finish this book. Most importantly, you'll meet in these pages a woman who is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. That alone is worth the price of admission.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love this Book May 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
How have I been a plant-based eater for seven months without knowing about Lindsay Nixon? Fortunately my husband introduced her to me on Mother's Day with Happy Herbivore light & lean. I was so thrilled with that book (made two recipes within four hours of receiving it) that I looked for more. Imagine my delight when I learned this book was to be released today!!! My husband pre-ordered it last night, I opened my iPad this morning and read the entire book. What a great help as I relate to others and continue this healthy life-style. Lindsay makes healthy eating easy and fun!!!

Excellent book! Very clear and easy to read! Very clear as to how to apply the guide to your life TODAY! I have been experimenting with a plant-based lifestyle for about a year now, but still had some loose ends and some questions about how to bring it all together, and this book answered every one of my questions! I now feel more grounded and much more informed about this lifestyle, and I am enjoying being plant-based more than ever! Thank you, Lindsay S. Nixon ~~ Well done!! Would give more than five stars!! :-)
