Overview

Go vegan the fabulous way with this helpful guide from an editor of VegNews, an award-winning vegan media outlet.
Maybe you're interested in it for the food, maybe it's the animals, or maybe climate change has got you thinking. Whatever your reason, maybe you don't quite know where to start. After all, doesn't going vegan mean you have to give up tasty snacks, cool shoes, a sense of humor, and your leather couch? (Nope, nope, no way, well . . . eventually.) Covering everything from nutrition (you will get enough protein, promise) to dating (vegans have better sex. It's true) to fitness (you want to lift a car over your head? Sure), Jasmin Singer and the team at VegNews bust all the myths and give you all the facts about a plant-based lifestyle. With 30 easy recipes to get you started, The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan will help you adopt a lifestyle that's better for you, the animals, and the planet. And what's more fabulous than that?
