Finding plant-based recipes? Easy. Dealing with the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan in a non-vegan world? That's the hard part. The Joyful Vegan is here to help. Many people choose veganism as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and/or their health. But despite their positive intentions and the personal benefits they experience, they're often met with resistance from friends, family members, and society at large. These external factors can make veganism socially difficult—and emotionally exhausting—to sustain. This leads to an unfortunate reality: the majority of vegans (and vegetarians) revert back to consuming meat, dairy, or eggs—breaching their own values and sabotaging their own goals in the process. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, known as "The Joyful Vegan," has guided countless individuals through the process of becoming vegan. Now, in her seventh book, The Joyful Vegan, she shares her insights into why some people stay vegan and others stop. It's not because there's nothing to eat. It's not because there isn't enough protein in plants. And it's not because people lack willpower or moral fortitude. Rather, people stay vegan or not depending on how well they navigate the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan: constantly being asked to defend your eating choices, living with the awareness of animal suffering, feeling the pressure (often self-inflicted) to be perfect, and experiencing guilt, remorse, and anger. In these pages, Colleen shares her wisdom for managing these challenges and arms readers—both vegan and plant-based—with solutions and strategies for "coming out vegan" to family, friends, and colleagues; cultivating healthy relationships (with vegans and non-vegans); communicating effectively; sharing enthusiasm without proselytizing; finding like-minded community; and experiencing peace of mind as a vegan in a non-vegan world. By implementing the tools provided in this book, readers will find they can live ethically, eat healthfully, engage socially—and remain a joyful vegan.

That’s Why We Don’t Eat Animals uses colorful artwork and lively text to introduce vegetarianism and veganism to early readers (ages six to ten). Written and illustrated by Ruby Roth, the book features an endearing animal cast of pigs, turkeys, cows, quail, turtles, and dolphins. These creatures are shown in both their natural state—rooting around, bonding, nuzzling, cuddling, grooming one another, and charming each other with their family instincts and rituals—and in the terrible conditions of the factory farm. The book also describes the negative effects eating meat has on the environment. A separate section entitled “What Else Can We Do?” suggests ways children can learn more about the vegetarian and vegan lifestyles, such as:“Celebrate Thanksgiving with a vegan feast” or “Buy clothes, shoes, belts, and bags that are not made from leather or other animal skins or fur.” This compassionate, informative book offers both an entertaining read and a resource to inspire parents and children to talk about a timely, increasingly important subject.

COOKING VEGAN was designed to help vegan and non-vegans alike understand how to use plant-based foods to sustain and maintain good health. Internationally renowned vegan dietitian Vesanto Melina and professional chef Joseph Forest combine their expansive knowledge and experience in this tour de force of information and tempting recipes to help readers expand their nutritional knowledge and increase their culinary repertoire. A companion book to Vesanto's best-selling Becoming Vegan (coauthored with Brenda Davis, R.D.), COOKING VEGAN expertly demonstrates that a well-balanced vegan diet supplies all the nutrients our bodies need. Explicit information is given on which foods provide protein to help maintain fitness, the right combination of nutrients to build strong bones, the best sources for carbohydrates and fats, and smart choices for obtaining vitamins D and B12. Each recipe has a complete nutritional analysis listing the number of calories and the amount of protein, fat, carbohydrates, minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids per cup or serving. A Vegan Food Guide describes the necessary food groups and provides recommended servings for optimal nutrition. Special emphasis was placed on creating foods that appeal to the senses of sight, smell, taste, and touch. A beginner seeking simplicity and a gourmet chef exploring the depths and nuances of flavor will both find nourishing and appetizing meals easy to assemble. Twelve daily menus combine recipes to help people of any age, activity level, or ability in the kitchen get a sense of how to mix and match dishes to suit their needs. A few of the delicious recipes to savor include Cashew Cheese Lasagne, Fiesta Quinoa Salad w/ Lime Dressing, Portobello Mushroom Burgers, Tuscan Minestrone and Chocolate-Orange Cake. Cooking Vegan shows how to adopt a diet that is not only healthful, but inspirational to prepare, and satisfying to eat.
