Library Journal
New York Times best-selling author Freston (Veganist: Lose Weight, Get Healthy, Change the World) has created a 30-day plan designed to ease readers into a vegan lifestyle. Billed as a way to lose weight, the book describes one small step to take each day to incorporate new behaviors into a healthy lifestyle, thereby crowding out the old, unhealthy behaviors. Each day builds on the previous one; readers may find some behaviors easy to adapt to (e.g., drink water, take vitamins, love yourself a little) and others more difficult (e.g., trade milk and butter for nondairy alternatives, take the animals off the dinner plate). Freston suggests replacing dairy and meat products with plant-based alternatives such as soy, almond, and rice milk and cheese as well as processed soy products such as "plant-based turkey" and "chik'n." The last portion of the book contains sample menus and recipes as well as a resource list of cookbooks and videos. VERDICT For those interested in losing weight and simultaneously adopting a vegan diet, this is an easy-to-follow plan. As with all diets, individual results may vary.—Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR
