A Must-Have Guide for the Smart Vegan

A vegan lifestyle is the newest hot health trend—thanks in no small part to the smart, fearless, and number one New York Times bestselling Skinny Bitch books. But with so much conflicting information out there, it's not always easy to make the best choices. Now Skinny Bitch coauthor Kim Barnouin is back with a book that makes making the right vegan choice easy. In Skinny Bitch Book of Vegan Swaps, Kim Barnouin takes the mystery out of following a plant-based diet. It's a comprehensive, user-friendly guide that tells you what foods look healthy, but actually aren't, and explains how to avoid the stuff you don't want. And because Kim knows that the concerns of today's savvy eaters run the gamut from calories to carbon footprints, she explains it all.

Skinny Bitch Book of Vegan Swaps offers exciting and tasty alternatives for vegans, whether you're just starting out or have been a vegan for years. Barnouin's fun, no-nonsense voice sparkles on every page and in helpful lists and features like:

  • The Best Places for Vegans to Grocery Shop
  • Delicious Swaps for Your Favorite Dairy Products
  • Top Ten Things to Eat While Stranded in an Airport

Vegan Swaps is a fantastic book. I am a long time vegan, and there are tons of tips that I didn't know. Kim gives detailed, no-nonsense information about being vegan. Great ideas, easy to manage (I work full time and am raising two awesome vegan kids)and great format.
BTW, you should also get Kim's cookbook, Ultimate Everyday Cookbook (Skinny Bitch). The orange scone recipe is to die for'

This book should be called "Book of Vegan BRANDS", not swaps. I'm a small-town vegan living 2+ hours from a Trader Joe's or Whole Foods. I bought the Kindle version of this book thinking it would contain vegan swaps that I could find in the average grocery store, but instead it's just a list of vegan brands (Earth Balance, etc.) that can pretty much only be found at Whole Foods/Earth Fare type stores, or swaps that were completely obvious, like Morningstar Farms Chik'n Patties for actual chicken. I loved Skinny Bitch so I'm disappointed-this book would be better for people considering going vegan, as I can't imagine anyone who'd been vegan for a significant period of time wouldn't already know this stuff.

This book would be great if you live in Southern California or a large city with access to health food stores, but alas I do not. I returned it!

My wife and I recently watched "Forks Over Knives." She immediately decided to become vegan and purchased the book. I'm the cook in the family. We read it together and chose a few recipes to start out with. A few of the recipes were from the 'Skinny Bitch.' They were VERY well received.

We got the vegan swap book last weekend. It motivated my wife to start cooking as well. Tonight she's making page 47, as I'm reading Kim's other book about Home/Health and Beauty in preparation for a seminar at our Women's Expo tomorrow.

This book has not only changed our lives, it will change the lives of many others...THE SKINNY BITCH ROCKS!

This book is the answer to all of my "on the road", "busy mom", and "no time issues". I love to cook vegan and I attempt to eat vegan while on the road (for work) and then there's always the quick kids meals I attempt to come up with on the fly! I found this book to be the perfect fill in the blank for my life as a working mom/cook from the shopping list to the recipe. Thank you Kim!

My husband and I have both been vegan for nearly four years. While we consider ourselves somewhat experts on veganism - around friends - having lived this healthy lifestyle for so long, we'll both readily admit that there is ALWAYS room to learn more. Picking up a copy of Kim's newest book is a great reminder!

I own her famous "Skinny Bitch" and "Skinny Bitch in the Kitch" books as well. Bought them shortly after going vegan, to understand how incompatible human bodies really are to animal products, and how to ensure my husband and I were obtaining proper vegan nutrition. I adored her hilarious writing style. Very in-your-face. I read "Skinny Bitch" in one day, a rarity for me... and particularly rare to read a "diet" book in one sitting... for anyone! Face it, diet books aren't Harlequin books. But Kim has a way of writing that hooks you. You feel like your best friend just wagged her finger in your face!! But she tops off her hilariously punchy attitude with perfect pats on the back.

As for her newest book - what a great idea!! Vegans know that we're always going to fellow vegans for the latest tips and tricks for recipes, new products, etc. This vegan swaps book is a handy little option to have laying around your house. Chalk full of recommendations and little cooking secrets, it's a fun book to flip through. Additionally, if you find yourself on a "carnivorous" recipe website and in love with a non-vegan recipe and trying to figure out how to "veganize" it, Kim's latest book is sure to help you out!

Even as someone new to Veganland, this book's content was painfully obvious. The author is just cashing in on the success of her first book...There's better info on the web for free.

I am 100% satisfied with this book. I actually thought I was getting another book by the author. This book is great and an easy read. I am making the transition from meat eater to vegetarian and Skinny B is helping with loads of information on choices and alternatives.

This book has some good tips and ideas that I would not have ever thought of, so it has been used quite a bit in my kitchen. I would recommend it to anyone experimenting with going vegan, or anyone just wanting to improve their health.
