Reading this book was the push I needed to also say no to chicken and fish. It was especially difficult, disgusting, and disturbing to read about meat processing practices in the US. I can't believe I've eaten the meat products from these industries for this long!
I think everyone should read this book and be fully informed before making dietary decisions. You won't regret it
I bought her book shortly after her talk at the bookstore. I wasn't expecting it to touch me in the way it did nor was I expecting to change my diet. I read it and re-read it and like the other reviewers have reported, I was convinced. I felt that I had to make a change for myself and for the farmed animals I had been consuming.
"By Any Greens Necessary" makes a vegan lifestyle accessible to all and is especially inspirational to African American women. I have found myself referring to her wonderful recipe section as well as to the rest of the book frequently as I transition to the vegan path. I recommend this book highly to those who are struggling with their weight, health issues and the moral ethics of eating meat. Moreover, it is very helpful in particular to African Americans who might find this transition socially, culturally and economically daunting.
This book is well written in layman's language, and I found it easy to identify with Tracye and her contributors' stories. This book is like Cliff's Notes for veganism. The recipes for the most part are easy to follow and utilize easy-to-find ingredients. In fact, I prepared the curried quinoa recipe on the same day I purchased the book using ingredients I already had on hand. I included Tracye's curried quinoa in my husband's lunch the next day, and I received an enthusiastic and appreciative call after hubby had eaten his lunch. He is still raving about that quinoa and has asked that I start including it in the regular rotation of meals.
By Any Greens Necessary would make a wonderful gift to yourself or to share with those you want to encourage to eat in a more healthful and conscious manner! Before you ask, I do not personally know the author and have no affiliations with her or the publisher -- although in the interest of disclosure, the author is from my hometown. :) Like Oprah, when I learn of something so good, I want to share it everyone. If I had not already made the transition to veganism, I do believe this book would have been the catalyst for me to do so.

It was hard for me to get through this, as the author pretty much had that stereotypical finger wagging 'greener than thou' style of writing. Read morePublished 2 months ago by ST
