Perfect book for a “beginner’s” library
I have been waiting for this book to be released for months. Finally, I bought it for myself for Christmas. It is fantastic! I’m not vegan, or even really vegetarian yet for that matter. Because of recent health scares with my children I’m interested in guiding my family toward a more plant-based diet and plan to eventually become vegan myself. This book lays out the “hows” and “whys” of a vegan lifestyle and helps a newbie learn how to get the most nutritional bang for the buck. While I was reading this book from start to finish in one afternoon, I couldn’t help but feel as if Alexandra Jamieson wrote this book specifically for me. I was a fan of her webistes, […] and then […]. She is a very knowledgable source for nutritional information and writes as if she were sitting and talking with you while sipping tea at your kitchen table. I am so pleased with this book and I’m certain I will refer to it over and over in the years to come. Thank you Chef Alex for such a great book!
