Vegan for Life by Jack Norris, RD and Virginia Messina, MPH, RD
Posted By JL Fields On November 10, 2011 @ 9:32 pm In Book Reviews | No Comments
Jack Norris, RD  and Ginny Messina, MPH, RD  have teamed up for what I now consider the vegan resource on my bookshelf, Vegan for Life: Everything you need to know to be healthy and fit on a plant-based diet . (You may recall that Ginny, The Vegan RD , wrote a post on vegan nutrition  for the Vegan 101 series  on this blog.)
Why am I gushing? Vegan for Life  is comprehensive in its use of research (and the authors explain how and why and which research they use) and it’s laid out so simply that me, a non-researcher, totally gets it. Jack and Ginny begin with nutrition and diet –this is the heart of the book — but also walk us through making the transition to a vegan diet, to raising vegan children, to vegan diets over fifty (hello, big 5.0., I’ll see you in four years!), to managing disease, to stocking your kitchen, to basic cooking techniques to the ethics of veganism. It truly is the Vegan 101 manual I always wanted.
As I read the book I began to dog-ear pages that I wanted to share with you, to demonstrate the wealth of information in this book:
And there’s so much more. I’m only sharing my dog-eared pages!
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 .
I’m done gushing. Go read Vegan for Life.
