Staff Review: "How To Go Vegan" by veganuary

★★★★★

Whether you’re thinking of going vegan one meal a day or you're a seasoned vegan (or somewhere in between), this has everything you need to know about veganism. Included are sections on how to go vegan in all parts of life including home items, traveling, nutrition, with your kids and more.

This book lays out all the reasons a person may have for going vegan, whether it be for ethical, environmental or health reasons. I appreciated that there were new facts for seasoned vegans but also poignant reminders as to why many start this shift in their lives. Those who are environmentally-conscious are reminded that “eating vegetables that have been flown in from the other side of the world still accounts for fewer emissions that eating beef from cows reared just down the road” (pg. 30), and that shockingly, “humanity has wiped out 60% of bird, mammal, fish and reptile populations since 1970….” (pg. 35).

I appreciated the sections on those who have allergies to consider, as I know from experience how limiting it can feel at first. Meal plans and recipes are included towards the end of the book, as well as a helpful frequently asked question section.
