This book got me over the hump. I am now a very happy fledgling vegan. I feel no deprivation whatsoever. My desire for animal foods is fading FAST. The book helped me realize that there are great-tasting vegan versions of practically anything. And if feels so good to be finally living consistent with my convictions.
The book is extremely informative as well as inspirational. It's worth the price just to learn about the incredible array of vegan resources that are available out there.
The authors mention that one of the things people most regret on their deathbeds is not living in accordance with their true selves - going along with the culture or family or church or whatever, when their real selves want to go in a different direction. That point really hit me. I realized that in my heart of hearts I am a vegan. Maybe you are, too. This book can certainly help you find out.
This trifecta vegan powerhouse of prolific authors, including the legendary vegan RD, Ginny Messina, leave no stone unturned in sharing every compelling reason to go vegan. They cover all the starting points from your wardrobe to dealing with a non-vegan circle of friends and relatives. And if all that weren't enough, they've included some very easy and delicious recipes at the end that deliver healthy doses of nutrition and flavor. Sections on building salads and sandwiches show how going vegan doesn't have to be rocket science.
Even if you are already vegan, the recipes are super appealing. The section on easy vegan meals for the non-cook may ring true at any age. Yes, I received a review copy, but if I didn't really like it, trust me, I wouldn't be writing here. Mama always said, "If you don't have something nice to say..." ;)
affect my body was terrific. From which foods will lower blood pressure to the choices that will make me generally feel better, I gained so much information that has already informed my choices. Plus, the recipes are spectacular -- easy to make and delicious. As they say in the book, people often love vegan dishes as long as they don't know they're vegan. I've already made a soup that got rave reviews and found a cheese substitute in nutritional yeast that made my palate and my arteries happier. I read the book completely, even the recipes and found it more than satisfying. If you are looking for a great resource about healthier eating, even if you aren't going vegan just yet or ever, this book will more than do the job for you.
I loved the entire book, but one feature I especially enjoyed was 'Our Vegan Lives' when Ginny, Carol and Patti answered specific questions like: 'What's in our fridges', 'What's in our vegan homes', 'Tips that helped us become vegan', etc. This book is the one written for my generation with solid evidence-based science, as well as the personal touch. It's a masterpiece!
