Overview

Is there one book that can answer all of my questions about becoming a vegetarian? Yes, Vegetarian Times Vegetarian Beginner's Guide is the only book written for beginner vegetarians or anyone just thinking about becoming one. It's packed with information written by the editors of Vegetarian Times, the leading authorities on the subject. Below are just a few of the hundreds of questions this handy book will answer. Will I get enough protein if I don't eat meat? Do I have to eat salad every day? How does a vegetarian diet help to prevent disease? If I'm pregnant, is it safe to be a vegetarian? Will my vegetarian children get the nutrients they need from a meatless diet?

Surveys have shown that the number of vegetarians in America is on the rise and the numbers of part-time vegetarians (people who eat meatless meals a few times a week) are even greater. This guide is written in a friendly tone to welcome and encourage prospective vegetarians and, although not a cookbook, features 50 recipes and two weeks of menus to help beginning vegetarians get started. 30 line drawings.

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.)

    A Great tool for Beginners - just like the title says!

    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.
