When it comes to nutrition and the vegan lifestyle, there is a lot of information out there. Some of it is good, some of it is... well, let's call it "questionable." This book serves as a common-sense guide to those who are seeking valid, unbiased, non-cherrypicked information about how to eat truly healthfully as a vegan. It sifts through many of the myths and misconceptions about being vegan, and provides valuable information in an easy-to-read format. The book also provides information on basic cooking skills, and some of the author's favorite easy-to-make recipes. This is not a beautiful, art-style book, and it is not a book of "health" recipes with hard-to-find ingredients. It is a realistic, down-to-earth, factual guide to proper eating as a vegan, with recipes that are enjoyable for all. Whether you are a seasoned vegan, looking into becoming a vegan, or simply want to learn more about nutrition and cooking, this is a great book to add to your library. Foreword by Dr. Mike Israetel, PhD, Professor of Nutrition for Public Health, Temple University
