Going vegan can be a daunting prospect, but reading cookbooks like The New Vegan is a great way to start learning.
ABOUT THE BOOK
In The New Vegan, author Áine Carlin guides you through the process of adopting a vegan lifestyle, with tips on what to tell people about your new diet, what you can eat at a restaurant, dealing with cravings and her take on vegan-friendly fashion (in 2015, she was named Most Stylish Vegan by PETA).
MY OVERALL IMPRESSION
This book is a nice resource for new vegans in particular, but it’s also very useful for seasoned vegans, as well. I love the skin care and beauty recipes.
WHAT SETS THIS BOOK APART
This book is more than just a cookbook; it’s also a guide with advice for going vegan in a non-vegan-friendly world. The book also has a vegan beauty section with awesome DIY skin care recipes for goodies like Mint and Rose Water Facial Mist, Whipped Coconut Body Butter and a Basil & Sea Salt Body Scrub.
