There are no recipes. It is about how to deal with external influences (social situations,etc.) and problem solving such as food substitutes and feeding kids.
If you have read books like the China Study or other heavy "sciency"books this will feel like a light read, If you feel well-grounded and know what you are doing, this book might be beneath your level of expertise. If you "know"what you are supposed to do but can't quite stick to it, reading this book may help.
It is a quick read. It only took me 2-3 hours split up over the last day or so. The conversational tone made me lose track of the time that I spent reading.
There is no "conclusion", after some troubleshooting topics--wham! appendix. Just like my review.
Lindsay Nixon is ready to show you the way. After years of developing Happy Herbivore, I'm sure that there is nothing about the WFPB lifestyle that she has not thought about or addressed with those who have asked.
In her easy to read and approachable style Lindsay has gathered together a "Best Of" collection of advice and resources to help those who are serious about making the change from the Standard American Diet to the WFPB lifestyle. From travel to resources, philosophies and "unmentionables", Lindsay doles out practical advise for every situation.
If you are not a Happy Herbivore fan already, I'm sure you will be by the time you finish this book. Most importantly, you'll meet in these pages a woman who is committed to making a difference in the lives of others. That alone is worth the price of admission.
It’s target audience are individuals that are new to plant- based eating or just curious about plant- based eating and its benefits. Nixon helps readers understand what plant- based eating is, and compares it to the traditional non plant- based foods and snacks consumed and how they are harmful to the body. In addition, she has chapters that cover how to convert to a plant based diet, and how to deal with curious (and sometimes discouraging) friends and family. In this book she includes recipes (I found the recipes for the Mushroom & Potato Soup and the Indian Lentils & Cabbage easy and delicious.) There is also a shopping list to get one started on their new journey. If there is one thing readers will take away from this book: there is no need to go on a diet when you can just change your diet.
Now for my thoughts: I liked the book for the information it provided. I am two years into my vegetarian lifestyle and this is a book I would have wanted in my early stages. So for those curious readers looking for a push in the right direction, start here. This book is an easy read with lots of pictures and side notes for emphasis. My favorite part of the book is the shopping list and the references (but that is just appealing to the researcher in me that likes to look into things further).
What I did not like, and most of the reviews on GoodReads agreed, were the incessant plugs for her other social mediums as well as links to sites where she charges for the same information. I mean…really, Lindsay?
Overall, it’s a great guide for “newbies” in the plant- based world. Nothing here is too technical, scholarly or boring. Just good sound advice provided in a friendly, non- threatening manner.
