Book Description

With the interest in vegan living on the rise, it’s time for a book that goes beyond the recipes. How does a newbie adopt a vegan approach when it comes to dating, entertaining, decorating, travel, and beyond? Author Elizabeth Castoria, the former editorial director of VegNews, offers a useful, friendly introduction to the vegan lifestyle for those who want to dabble or for those already committed to living animal-product-free. She shows how simple it is to be vegan, from the food (plants, fruits, nuts, and grains all explained) and nutrition (which supplements are needed), to the etiquette (what to do at an omnivore’s dinner party), travel (where to find the best vegan airport food in the United States), fashion (there's no need to swear off designer duds), and more. To close the book, there are 50 recipes for the beginner vegan. With familiar ingredients and straightforward instructions, and with options from Tofu Scramble and Cheesy Kale Chips to Pasta with Artichoke Alfredo and Fabulous Fudge Brownies, there is no missing meat or dairy with this satisfying vegan food.

Presented in concise, practical easy-to-read pieces, with tips and tricks to employ in all parts of life—and filled with helpful illustrations and humorous ones too—How to Be Vegan presents a vegan lifestyle that is more accessible than ever before.



Editorial Reviews

Review

"Elizabeth's fun, thoughtful book will help people get started down the road to eating a more plant-powered diet. It's going to push veganism further into the mainstream. I highly recommend it."

--Chef Tal Ronnen, New York Times bestselling author of The Conscious Cook

(Food Industry News)

"Elizabeth's smart, funny book is just the thing for someone who wants to figure out how to eat more plants. She takes any scary edge off the word 'vegan' with clear, friendly information."

--Kris Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Crazy Sexy Kitchen

(Tal Ronnen)

“The best fifteen-buck investment in vegan information you’ll make this, or any, year.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegan with a sense of humor! April 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If any reader began this book by thinking that vegans are dour zealots, that person will have shed that opinion by the end of the first chapter. This book makes veganism look cool and, even more important, doable! It is an excellent resource for both newbies and old hands at the vegan life. Get it and read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ordering multiple copies! April 23, 2014
By Liz D
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is so good that my mom stole it from me before I could finish. It is beautifully presented and extremely well written. Elizabeth Castoria's style is at once down-to-earth, engaging and informative. It feels like you're hanging out with your vegan best friend! I couldn't recommend it more highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to be Vegan April 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I just finished this amazing book, and it is not only educational, but extremely witty and clever. I am not vegan, yet, but this book inspired me to think about my diet and incorporate more plant-based food. I loved the chapters on vegan cleaning products, makeup and clothing. Very enlightening! I feel I now understand how to be vegan, and will never embarrass myself by asking vegans how they get their iron! I will be trying some recipes that Castoria included in the book. They look very tasty!

5.0 out of 5 stars Informative and Entertaining April 28, 2014
Format:Paperback
I got this for my father who turned vegan after I gave him 'The China Study'. Honestly I'm relieved, due to time restraints I didn't think he would make time to read any book but the humor and diagrams included in this one made it a quick read. Since he travels constantly, the section about airports was really helpful as well.

Before I gave it to him I sat down and read most of it myself and actually found myself laughing out loud, something that was completely unexpected. If you have a friend or loved one that is changing their diet this is a friendly way to show that you care.
