Reviewed by Katelyn Hensel for Readers' Favorite Street Smart Vegan is definitely an eye opener. The cover is clever and smart, and gives you a good look at what is inside the pages of this informative and descriptive detailing of going vegan. Jay Wesley Anderson uses smooth and welcoming logic to get his points across and his book aims to aid vegans on their journey, rather than converting carnivores like me.(Although he does encourage considering the health benefits of being a vegan and makes even me question my love of big juicy steaks) He writes to try and get rid of some of the clutter and confusion surrounding veganism and really gets to the core of the issues. While at some junctures, I did get the definite pressure of "Meat is bad. Bad for you, bad for the world, here try these carrots" -it was never overtly preachy or condemning. The book was more of a gentle encouragement to attempt to go vegan, which I'm assuming that anyone reading this book would be doing anyway. While Jay may not have converted me completely (I don't think I could ever give up cheese and milk), he definitely encouraged me to really think about where my food is coming from, what health benefits I am missing out on because of my carnivore diet, and what I could gain by being a bit more careful about my food. He also teaches vegan practices in a calm and easy going manner. There's no pressure, no hate if you have a slip-up while trying Jay's path to veganism. Just get back on that carrot and keep going! A must-read for those considering becoming vegan, or even those just curious like me. You learn a ton of information like keeping your pH level at a certain place, getting your anti-oxidants, among many more topics. I also really enjoyed the "What Made You Go Vegan" chapter and the section about queries that come up when considering becoming vegan. An excellent and very worthy read.
