With Kramers latest book, Vegan a Go-Go, we connect with the punk princess of meatlessness once again. This new set of recipes, is collected into a mini-tome so tiny it's no bigger than a change purse. And for practical purpose, because as a survival manual for vegans on the road, it's designed to be easily tucked into a purse, suitcase, car glove compartment, or even a passport folder. We love the spunky graphic look to it.

―Scholastic Parent & Child (Scholastic Parent & Child 2008-11-05)
Kramer's book is a fun little book--about the size of a passport--sporting a retro look, snappy, fun writing, and lush-sounding recipes.
―Monday Magazine (Monday Magazine 2008-11-20)
I got a little more than I expected when I opened Sarah Kramer's pocket-sized travel guide, Vegan a Go-Go. Sure, it has the usual Kramerish type recipes, but it also has a wealth of plain old reading material. I loved the stories of Kramer as a child traveling with theater parents. I also appreciated the tales of Sarah as a young adult just learning about the world and the troubles that ensued. And I found it interesting how both of these experiences shaped her later adventures.
―VegFamily (VegFamily 2008-12-11)
Kramer shows off her glam-punk style throughout the book and takes an informal, heart-felt approach to her writing.... [Her] recipes are approachable and fun.
―The Kitchn.com (The Kitchn 2009-04-21)
Snacks like Righteous Orbs and Chocolate Nut Energy Bars are the perfect pick-me-up for foodies traveling by train, plane, car or foot and on a budget.
―E: The Environmental Magazine (E: The Environmental Magazine 2009-05-02)
This is much more than a traveller's cookbook; there are plenty of good travel tips that cover much more than food choices.

About the Author
More About the Author
Combining her love of food and her love of animals into a home-made cookbook zine to give to friends and family as x-mas presents. Reaction to the zine was so overwhelming that she realized that she was on to something special and her aspirations to do something with her life that made a difference in the world soon became a reality.
This tiny little zine grew into the best selling cookbook How It All Vegan (which has sold over 150 000+ copies and is often referred to by fans as "The Vegan Bible") only to be followed by it's triumphant sequel The Garden of Vegan and La Dolce Vegan both of which are hot on HIAV heels as best sellers.
Sarah's newest book Vegan A Gogo! hit bookshelves in '08.
Sarah's newest work is a 2010 Calendar that hit shelves in the summer of '09.
HIAV has also been awarded the 2003/2004 Veg News Veggie award for Best Veg Cookbook. Sarah was awarded Veg News Veggie award for favourite cookbook author in 2005 and a M-Award in 2006 for Favourite Book for LDV.
Sarah is known for her sassy vintage style and layman's approach to Veganism, and has been joyfully spreading the Vegan gospel to anyone who will listen. Appearing on national TVg9vlKD4o shows like Canada AM and W-5 as well as local shows like New Day Live, Breakfast Television and Go Magazine, she has also appeared as a guest on numerous radio stations such as CBC and NPR. Sarah also does live cooking appearances at festivals such as Word on The Street, Earth Save events and Vegetarian Conferences throughout Canada and the United States.
A self confessed web junkie, Sarah created a safe haven at her website GoVegan.net for Vegan and curious Vegans to meet and talk about issues. She has written columns for Herbivore Magazine and Veg News as well as running The Tattoo Zoo with her husband/artist Gerry Kramer. When she's not at the tattoo shop, or working on her photography she's in her kitchen working hard on perfecting recipes for her cookbooks.
Herbivore Magazine Sarah was born and bred in Regina, Saskatchewan and hopped on a train in 1988 and headed west for Victoria BC, where she has lived ever since. She enjoys long walks on the beach. She laughs loudly during movies...even when nobody else is laughing. She loves puppies and kittens and is scared to go into the basement by herself. She lives with her husband Gerry and Fergus the Dog, on a nice street somewhere near the beach in Victoria.
Sarah believes that Veganism is not just about food, but is a positive compassionate lifestyle choice. She believes the choices we make, however small (from the food that we eat to the shoes that we choose to buy) have a direct impact on how the world turns. Never one to bash people over the head with an aggressive message, Sarah believes that it only takes one tiny spark to start a fire and she has a pack of matches and is ready to burn!

There are two HUGE problems with this teeny tiny book.
1. It's useless as a true vegan travel tool. Virtually every recipe would be just too involved to create on the road. And the information is too thin to make a book out of. That's why it was produced in a mini book format. Yes, you could pack it but you'd never look at it.
2. Most of the recipes are a rehash. Just in a tiny format.
So if you have a very simple Kramer recipe you really like. Just bring a copy of it with you on your next trip. It will take up even less space than this tiny useless book.
Traveling when you're vegan can be very difficult. Often, you're in a place you don't know, and you don't always know where you can eat (unless you get a plain salad, yuck!). Sarah makes it easy by giving travel tips for tons of situations and destinations, and so many of her recipes are quick and easy and sometimes things you can cobble together on the fly.
Sarah's saved my sanity years ago. I went to my then boyfriend's house for thanksgiving. It's in another state. His family didn't approve of or understand my vegan ways, and there was little to nothing I could eat. At that time, I traveled with How It All Vegan, and I could make some food at home, and her cute photos and stories helped me keep my good humor. Now I can have that same traveling comfort in a pocket sized portion! :>
This is the tiniest Kramer book, but it's also the sweetest. The color photos, icons, places for notes.... All I can say is Sarah, thank you for being you and making it that much easier for the rest of us vegans to be who we are.
P.S. If you haven't bought one of Sarah's previous books (and Tayna for the first two) then Sarah's recipes are quick, easy, can be made with ingredients on hand, and are nutritious. This book is a lot like its author... it's cute, but it has substance!
Sarah shares her own travel adventure stories (both good and bad) and great travel tips. The book's size (about the dimensions of a passport, but thicker) is perfect for taking along on trips. It includes recipes for snacks and meals to take on the road. Also there are new recipes and favorites from previous books that you will have on hand to make for friends and relatives while you are visiting. If you've got really good friends, maybe they'll cook them for you!
A great vegan resource.
