Wow! Feel like you can't go vegan because you don't know what you would eat? Or maybe you know someone who wants to be vegan, but caves with excuses after a couple of days or falls back into their "habits" of yore? Well, have I got a book for them!
The Daily Vegan Planner / 12 Weeks to a Complete Vegan Diet Transition is 84 days of meal plans and recipes, complete with nutritional information! Plenty of time to develop healthier, new habits, right? Each day has breakfast, lunch and dinner planned, with either simple dishes that don't require a recipe, or all the recipes provided right there on the page! They are simple and introduce more "vegan" items, like homemade seitan, as the weeks progress. Lunch often incorporates leftovers, and there is minimal packaged and processed food. Woo! Each day has a diary page, too, for recording how you felt, what exactly you ate and it's nutritional breakdown, as well as how much water you consumed. There is a vegan food pyramid you can fill in to see what you're getting AND what you're not! Then, each week has a wrap up to help you ascertain what went well, what could go better, and more.
This book would be AMAZING for someone who doesn't have a lot of support or simply needs reassurance that their choices are right. Or, if someone just doesn't know where to begin! 84 days of veganism in print -- with tips on starting right, stocking your pantry, eating out, dealing with cravings, finding substitutes for non-vegan recipes and more. AWESOME.
