“A densely-packed treasure chest of nutritional information for vegans and those who feed them.”
 


VegNews, September/October 2011
“Packed with science yet never boring, Norris and Messina—both long-time vegans themselves—put their wealth of knowledge at your fingertips while putting to rest any nutritional issues that concern those aspiring to a plant based-diet…No vegan myth goes unbusted…Vegan for Life is a complete reference guide that deserves a spot in your library or kitchen.”

“Never before have I ever come across such an excellent, factual book…This book would be great for anyone. I think it would be wonderful for new vegans to start them on the right path. It would also be a great gift to any family members of a vegan who have questions (I know my mother did when I started). It should also be required reading for any longtime vegan, like myself, to make sure that you are getting the most of our diet…Get this book. Seriously… 5 Stars.”

VegKitchen.com, 11/10/11
“If you’re a new vegan, or a vegan who might be buying into the hype that a vegan diet is not sustainable, read this book.  If you’re a vegan who wants a quick resource at your fingertips or the perfect book to hand over to your vegan-curious family member or friend read this book.”
