―Shoshana, The Monkey Bunch (Shoshana 2008-07-01)
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.

This pocket-size cookbook is a useful resource whether your family is vegan or just looking for easy ways to eat healthy while you're away from home. It's full of helpful travel tips and delicious veggie-packed recipes (like Pun-kin Pasta and Nutty Broccoli) you can prepare without much fuss in the kitchen where you're staying.
―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.

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.
With quirky admonishments to "WEAR CLEAN UNDERWEAR" and a photo of a galactic girl with a space gun (for the chapter heading "Dips and Spreads") urging "Ask for directions" (???!!!)... there are also (thank goodness!!! come on, now!) advice blurbs as well, such as, "Pale is the new tan." The tone of the book is 'your best girlfriend or older sister 'advice style.' There are travel tips on packing, good safety tips and advice on vegan food choices abroad. Airline and cruise (ship) tips are also included. There is an index, but the print is perhaps a 5 point font.
There are lots of recipes and most of them are quite simple. Often there is a single recipe to a page (again in the super tiny print with all the white margins). I think the best thing the book does is to remind a traveling vegan what her options are when so many other issues and thoughts may be clouding the brain. For this reason, the book is solidly helpful. The book has a loving, conversational, fun tone to it and if it weren't for the insanely small print and wasted white space, I would recommend this book to almost anyone.Read more ›
