    I would give this set to me, from my kids. I have been a vegetarian for 40 years and my kids have been all their lives (26 and 22 years). Now that I am fighting breast cancer I have been doing a lot of thinking about moving towards vegan but am not sure if I can or how.

    I would give it to myself as I have been trying to eat healthier and looking for new recipes. I am gradually making meatless dishes but its hit and miss. I am feeling healthier and have more energy as I transform my lifestyle. This would really help to move in the right direction.

    I have two friends who have multiple sclerosis…one of whom I have turned onto a plant-strong diet and her symptoms have regressed…the other friend isn’t sold on the power of a plant-strong diet. I would love to give these books to her so that she might see how her body was the amazing power to heal itself, if only given the right diet!!

    I’ve been a vegan since my mid-teens (I’m now 28) and have always tried to persuade my mother to go vegan herself. Admittedly, my attempts have mostly been made of nagging and guilt trips. Obviously, this has not worked. As I can now see that my mother really NEEDS to go vegan now as her health is deteriorating, I think that these excellent books would be far more effective than any nagging from her annoying son! My mother is an academic, so I think if she could read and digest this information alone, and discovering that it’s not as difficult as she thinks would now produce an exciting and positive result!

    I would especially love this to go to two courageous grandmothers who have been raising twin 10-year-olds and an 11 y/o, since they were 2 & 3 years of age, who happen to be my niece and nephews.
    In addition to all their love, dedication and efforts, I would love for them to embrace an ideal eating lifestyle… not only for themselves, but for these children. At an age when they should be slowing down & pampering themselves, they are constantly & tirelessly running for these kids… never complaining. Their personal health has taken a back seat. But we want them around for a LONG time!
    Unfortunately, their face-paced life has prevented nutrition from being a highlight in their lives. The SAD is rampant in this household.
    The 11-year-old, Tyler, recently adopted a vegetarian diet by his own choice. Without appropriate resources, his food choices and availability are quite limited. These books could provide the tools they need, and help guide them and reassure them that adults and children can thrive on a vegan diet. They really need some simple “how to”…
    I have been vegetarian/vegan for 20+ years, but I think it may help hearing it from someone else 🙂

She has been talking about going vegan, but doesn’t really know how to do it. These books would be a tremendous help for her, as an introduction to veganism.

I have been a vegan for over a year and every Sunday when I have Mom for dinner, she will taste whatever vegan meal I prepare, say, “It’s ok,” but insist on her meat. At least she stopped asking me if I am still eating “that crap!”. I took her to the Loving Hut and she had s Seitan dish and liked it so there’s hope. Maybe these books can inspire her to change a little at a time so she can improve her health and get off of the statins she is now taking. I would love to have her around for another 20 years or so!

I’ve been devastated, keeping to the letter of the law, but grudgingly. I thought by this age I’d be able to do less cooking, and now it’s learn a new way of preparing and eating food or die! This is truly an immediately life or death matter for me. After a few months of sulking, I need to get with the program FAST!

Her all-or-nothing carnivore husband decided to go plant-based 3 years ago, and of course the entire family did too. Last fall they moved from WA to TN for her to take care of her 88 hear old grandparents, after Pa had a major heart attack… Thanks to her he “grands” have been 95% plant-based since Oct of ’14, and all of their lab tests have improved dramatically… but mealtimes are a constant challenge for her. These books would be a lovely lift and inspiration for her!

    I want this books for my mother in law, the reason: she always forces me to eat meat, because she says that ” I need real protein” , I want her to learn the benefits from being vegan, and how she can help me with my anemia, boost our immune system, or how to treat any health disease, so in this way all my family can be more healthy, and remove animal products from our diet.

    I would LOVE to give one to MY LOVELY MOM who is 80 and has just been diagnosed with a heart problem, and has some beginning signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s 🙁 I love her and Dad dearly and they need to realize they can eat healthier and it still tastes yummy! Then I’d give one to my WONDERFUL MOM-IN-LAW who is 81 and lives with us in our basement suite (whom I also adore) She and ‘Dad’ have been shaking their heads at us lately as we finish up a 60 day juicing experiment and head into learning to eat PLANT-BASED for the rest of our lives! They too need to taste the delicious plant based recipes and realize eating can still be tasty and great! The last one would be for me and my husband who have only just decided to continue to eat plant based diets ( & can share w/kids & grandbabies who visit)!! We’re both down 20-30 lbs (needed that) feeling fabulous, energized, and HEALTHY …finally! 🙂 I have struggled with borderline diabetes, and arthritis but am now doing MUCH better by just changing my diet!! Then we’ll rotate and share the books with each other 🙂 🙂

    I would keep it for myself because I’m trying to lose weight and am a diabetic. I want to feel healthy and human and be able to buy clothes for a normal size.

    I’d keep the books, well, for my daughter. She is 17 and recently went vegetarian and I don’t know what to cook that’s quick, easy and she can make when she goes to university in the fall.

    Reading these comments, I know there are so many people who are deserving and in need of these! I wish there was enough to go around. If I’m fortunate enough to be chosen, I’d give them to my mom who is obese and diabetic but “could never go vegan.” I want to show her that a healthy and compassionate lifestyle is not only doable, but fun and easy, too.

    My Mom needs these books! My brother who visits often and myself, local, would eat at her house a lot more often if she had this amazing trio of vegan cook books!

    In my family I am the only vegetarian. Recently I have been making more dietary choices to eat vegan. I love reading and learning from your website and Facebook posts. Your books would be such a treasure for me.

    I would keep them. I am a vegetarian, not a vegan, mostly because I don’t know how change to a vegan diet. I also work hard at being a mom, so it would be a Happy Mothers Day to me.

    I would give the books to my mom. (Of course I’d sneak a read as well) I want them for her because she recently decided to go vegan with me and I couldn’t be happier. I don’t want her to get discouraged by the difficulty of preparing new meals. I think that these will help her to feel confident in her choice and allow us to bond over a new lifestyle we will share. 🙂

    I would actually give it to myself. I hope it doesn’t seem too selfish, but I have struggled at eating healthy, and have wanted to live a vegan lifestyle, but I am having trouble on getting started. (I just am at a loss at how to sustain eating vegan.) I feel these books would help greatly!
