I became a vegan in January, and was finding it difficult to eat healthfully. So many vegan cookbooks and websites promote a superficially healthy alternative to the Standard American Diet, still incorporating a high-fat, high-sodium, highly processed (soy products) eating style, promoting vegan cookies as somehow better than any other homemade sweet simply because they didn't use animal products. I really couldn't find solutions for myself among the overweight, unhealthy vegan authors and chefs.
I was already aware of the cruelties inherent in the American factory farming system, so reading here about these horrors wasn't new to me, but I think everyone needs to be made aware of the way their food arrives on their plate. Ms Moran does an admirable job of educating the reader on the why's and how's of our American way of eating, the nutritional downfalls, health consequences, individual responsibility to choose wisely, includes a recipe at the end of each chapter so we can try out some of these alternatives to the SAD. She covers so many bases - peer pressure, advertising, ego, acceptance, education, misinformation, joy. A great resource that leads to more great resources.
I also love the recipes at the end of each chapter. I haven't tried any yet but I intend to once I finish the book. This book is super informative about how to switch to a vegan diet and get all your vitamins and nutrients so your not sitting around starving wondering what to eat. There is a whole new world out there being a vegan. I love every second of being vegan and this book is an absolute must have for anyone thinking of going vegan or is curious about it.
She is simple and the chapters are short. She ends each chapter with a recipe.
I didn't expect really that many recipes when I ordered this but I was so pleased. I tried
I think 1 recipe the chilly and it was really good. I tweaked a little but it was easy and quick.
My husband loved the chilly.
I just may next time add some squash or something to get in our veggies.
She speaks so simple and clear. I've been a vegetarian for 20 yrs or so and I decided it's time to go vegan.
She made me want to continue my journey as a vegan. I've been a vegan for a few months now, still I need a few tweaks. Such as
the homeopathic pills has lactose in them grrrrr. So I will have to find some alternative to that. But otherwise I am proudly vegan. It's easy with an encouraging book like this. Yesterday I went to an event and how temping it was, all this food I use to eat. But I didn't even want it. Yahoo...
She also doesn't make you feel so bad if one day you were to eat something like dairy. I wouldn't of course. But she eases you into veganism. She's not so in your face.
I think if I got my husband or mom even to read this (who are meat eaters) they would slowly become vegetarian. Thats how good this is.
I highly recommend this book. I will probably buy one for our friend (as a holiday gift) who is vegan as well. I think he will too enjoy the simplicities of this book and the recipes as well.
Whether you are interested in healthy foods, animal welfare, or just having a lighter footprint on the planet, you will find great information in Main Street Vegan.
Each chapter ends with a delicious recipe; we’ve been hooked on Chef AJ’s House Dressing (at the end of the Supplements chapter) since reading the book, and everyone loves it.
