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!
