I’ve been trying to focus on a more plant based diet myself so this is a great tool to get started on the basics. It gave me some meal ideas that are good and easy to make!

The author makes the case well for the adoption of a plant based diet, on health and other grounds, such as not being cruel to animals, and uses history and other arguments to support the case. Powerfully written and persuasive. Thank you to netgalley and the publishers for giving me a copy of the book.

I truly wish that this book was available way back in 1983 when I became a vegetarian. I had originally thought that this book has recipes but it doesn't. What it has is a clear explanation of a plant based diet. Granted it was slightly aimed more at vegans but us veggies can benefit from it too.
I highly recommend this book if you want to tiptoe into a plant based way of eating. I dislike using the word diet to apply to a way of eating.
I give this review honestly.

This was an incredible read, I’ve read a fair few books on loosing weight but I never manage to stick to any of them. I try to mostly eat plant based foods so when I saw this book I jumped at the chance of reading it. There are a lot of amazing tips to getting starting on a plant based diet in here that even the biggest fan of meat would be able to make the switch.

This was a great read. I enjoyed reading the various tips and info about wanting to eat plant based. It has great info for someone curious about a vegetarian or vegan diet and not sure where to start. It covered a variety of topics, such as, diabetes, PCOS and arthritis to make a few things and how going to a plant based diet would help.

This had some good information about why switching to a vegetarian/vegan diet is so important. It definitely pushed veganism (no diary, eggs, etc) over vegetarian. The usual preaching that it is not just a diet but a lifestyle. I would definitely get behind this for ethical reasons and overall health, but I don't think I could cut out diary completely.

I liked the chapters on food pairings and portions. I like the discussion on the vegetarian food wheel. I like that there were some food/meal ideas as well that were easy.

However towards the end there was a lot harboring on medical issues and plant based diets "to cure" these issues. I think a healthy diet can minimize many of these issues, sure. But a lot of preaching about what this change can do seemed like it was scaring people into making the switch; instead of suggesting it.

Still a recommended, well-written book about plant based diet lifestyle not heavy on recipes but the philosophy. I am adopting more days to veggies during the week and less to red meat, it is a start.

Recommended.

Thanks to Netgalley, Goffredo Righi Schwammer and Books Go Social for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you NetGalley and BooksGoSocual for providing me with an early copy of this book.

Plant-Based Diet for Beginners, by Geffredo Righi Schwammer, is a straight to the point guide to initiate oneself into a plant-based diet.

I have been a vegetarian for 3 years, and at the beginning it was a radical change of lifestyle. I wish I had had an easy guide to hold my hand during those tough first moths where I did not know what to eat.

The fact that the book is not written to be read by experts but by the lay person, makes it so that the reader actually entertains the idea of changing their diet style. Moreover, the book goes over how a plat-based diet affects the human body focusing on how vegetarianism and veganism affect diabetes, PCOS and arthritis, in addition to losing weight.

I have no doubt that once this book is available to purchase I will be gifting it to most of my friends, as a way to show them that being plant-based is honestly the better choice.

I grabbed this book hoping that it would inspire me to increase the number of plant based meals that I consume. I am someone who enjoys a lot of food but sometimes struggle with finding plant based meals that I enjoy. I must not have read the description very well, because I discovered that this is a book explaining all of the concepts surrounding a plant-based approach and not so much a recipe book. (There is a recipe toward the middle) I do appreciate that the author took the time to lay out, in thorough detail, vocabulary, background, a variety of options, etc. I found the reference to the food study very interesting. This is a great read for someone wanting to understand more about a plant based way of life.
