Vegan for Life is an essential guide for anyone wanting to learn more about a vegan diet and for people already committed to a vegan lifestyle. Authors and dieticians, Jack Norris and Virginia Messina have compiled a book overflowing with valuable nutrition information about eating a plant-based diet. Along with facts about being healthy while eating a vegan diet, the authors also include sample menus for children, adults, seniors, and athletes. Vegan for Life debunks myths about vegans and provides realistic ways to thrive while eating a plant-based diet.
I appreciate how the authors are not preachy about transitioning to a vegan diet. Instead, they write about medical studies, facts, and the correct way to maintain good health on a plant-based diet. For me, this book is a must have for any vegan. I know this is a book that I will use as a reference for my family and myself over the years. I learned a great deal about vegan nutrient needs. You’ll also find helpful tips for vegans on a budget, a quick cooking guide, and a metric conversion chart.
