My Thoughts
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Mahatma Gandhi
What is veganism? Why would you want to become vegan? What are the benefits? This book answers all of that and more! The author walks you through the history of veganism, the different reasons that people have for choosing veganism, the tenets of it, and how you can achieve it. You'll learn things like the fact that "Pythagoras advocated an early form of veganism as far back as 500 BC."

So, “Why vegan?” You can do it for the animals, for the environment, for your health, or any combination of the above. I’ve even known some who have done it simply because they didn’t like the taste of animal products. I am not vegan, but I used to be pescatarian, which is to say that I used to abstain from most meats, but I did eat fish and seafood. I aspire to return to a pescatarian lifestyle and hopefully eventually a vegetarian diet. I don't know whether I will ever become vegan, but I'm always exploring the possibility.

One of the biggest reasons to consider a vegan diet is the fact that livestock wreak havoc on the environment.
  • It takes one-quarter of all our freshwater to sustain the meat and dairy industry 
  • Animal agriculture is responsible for 14% of all greenhouse gas emissions 
  • Livestock feed has become the leading cause of deforestation, accounting for 91% of the Amazon Rainforest’s destruction.
Health is another big reason to consider veganism.
The vegan, plant-based diet was found to reduce the risk for cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and type-2 diabetes. A vegan diet was also found to provide the best protection against female-specific cancers…
It's also a great way to lose weight. This is because "plant foods are naturally low in fat, but still contain all the nutrients needed to survive. They are a good source of energy and protein."

The book is also chock full of dietary tips like why you should avoid sugar and the effects of saturated fat on inflammation in the body, and includes three weeks of menu plans and recipes. Delicious recipes like Maple Cinnamon Oatmeal, Adzuki Bean Stew with Miso, Thai Noodle Salad, Chocolate Almond Butter Fruit Dip, and Warm Tomato Salad. And better yet, the recipes are small batch recipes for a single person! No more having to make a big dish to serve six people and eat the same thing for days!

My final word: Informative and packed with yummy recipes, this book is a great primer for anyone looking to explore veganism! It's well written and well organized and full of great information. I also love that it's designed for single people! Note that I read a kindle edition, so I can't speak to the quality of the book binding or picture quality.
The foundational pillar upon which Veganism rests is one of ethics as it is driven by one’s personal, moral, and ethical compass which considers the use of animals for food, clothing, or entertainment to be cruel. Beyond ethics, veganism is the belief that one does not need to consume animals or their by-products to meet nutritional needs. It’s a personal decision for those who love fruits and vegetables. The intention is not to pass judgment on non-vegans, but to offer an ethical option for those who desire alternatives to the omnivorous, western diet of meat and potatoes. Like any other diet, veganism isn’t for everyone and that is perfectly ok.

My Rating:


The Cerebral Girl is a middle-aged blogger just digging her way out from under a mountain of books in the deep south of Florida.

I received a kindle copy of this book to review through Hidden Gems Books in exchange for my honest opinion. I was not financially compensated in any way, and the opinions expressed are my own and based on my observations while reading this novel.
