New addition to my collection of books. Vegan books. This is a great read, just came out in July 2011 and whether you are a long time vegan or just thinking about adopting vegan lifestyle - this book definitely should be in your library.
Vegan for Life is your comprehensive, go-to guide for optimal plant-based nutrition. Registered dietitians and long-time vegans Jack Norris and Virginia Messina debunk some of the most persistent myths about vegan nutrition and provide essential information about getting enough calcium and protein, finding the best supplements, and understanding the "real deal" about soy.
Covering everything from a six-step transition plan to meeting calorie and nutrient needs during pregnancy and breastfeeding, Vegan for Life is the guide for aspiring and veteran vegans alike, complete with an easy-to-use food chart, tasty substitutions, sample menus, and expansive resources.
This is not a cookbook, this is your nutritional giude to be a healthy vegan. If you have a kindle, you can send a sample to your kindle and check out few pages of the book before purchasing it. It didn't take me long at all to realize that this is a great book to have, contains all new and current research information about proper nutrition for vegans. Even if you think that you know it all, i bet you there is information in the book that you still find very helpful. I give it 5 STARS...
