Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this introduction to the vegetarian lifestyle, the editors of Vegetarian Times (whose circulation has doubled in the last three years) describe the various types of vegetarianism. Stressing the health value of the vegetarian lifestyle, especially in the treatment of various diseases, they point out the possible dangers of dairy foods, discuss whether to use vitamin supplements, and encourage the use of low-fat ingredients. Tips on the basic vegetarian pantry, along with two-weeks' worth of easy recipes and menus, are given for the beginner. Extra good-reading resource material is found at the end of each chapter, and there is a small section on natural healing; food-borne illnesses; vegetarian babies, children, and teens; and, yes, even vegetarian pets. Recommended for most collections; libraries may also want the Vegetarian Times Cookbook (LJ 11/15/95) for more extended recipes. (Index not seen.)

The information in this book was very helpful for me and my family to understand how to live a meat-free lifestyle. It is informative without being preachy, because it presents the information in a realistic and humorous way. It contains a small amount of recipes, but the ones we tried were really good, and easy to swap out ingredients.
