I am not yet a Vegan - and I was hesitant to become one. Besides the fact that I will miss my favorite foods: cheese, ice cream, milkshakes...I also had reservations about the diet itself. I have seen a quite few Vegans who were malnourished-looking. Without meat or dairy, I thought, of course they are malnourished!
But of course I was wrong. For one thing Sister Afya is herself a Vegan - and she is certainly not malnourished (looking or otherwise). For another, there are plenty of sources of calcium and protein without having to resort to animal flesh and secretions. <- Gross, that statement alone will make me become a Vegan!
But, actually, her book is not condescending at all to us meat eaters. She advises people not to try to stop Cold Turkey. But to gradually cut things out of our diet.
She spends a lot of time, educating readers on the correct way to be a Vegan - what foods to avoid and what to make sure you include in every meal (60+ pages!)
But this does not at all mean that she skimps on the recipes. She has lots of recipes in here (including *2* brownie recipes) yum!
Here is the breakdown:
Breakfast recipes: 8
(I know what you are thinking: of course salads are vegan - why do I need a recipe for them? - well, she has some great ideas for new salads to try)
Main Dishes: 10
Sauces and Dips: 3
As you can see, she generous with the recipes!
But that is not all! After all the recipes, she STILL includes more info like meal planning, substitution basics AND a DVD on cooking with TOFU.
This book is WELL worth every penny I spent on it! I can't wait till she writes more books. I will be the first in line to purchase them!
