I really enjoyed reading the book, it's clear, concise, and full of very helpful tips, advice and facts.
I've been a vegan for several months, and I was able to learn a lot from it! I think it will be a great book for those who are just starting or who are interested in going vegan. It is always good to have another resource and tool when being vegan, and I will definitely be referencing "A Fresh New Vegan You" as I continue on this life changing, world changing path that I am on.
Going vegan not only saved my life, but it changed the way I look at the world, and the life that is in it, it helped me to see all the beauty that is in this world, and how much I wanted to work to preserve it. Before going on a plant based diet there was so much that I was missing, but now, almost a year later, I am feeling better than I ever have, I'm continuing to lose weight, and I continue to have controlled diabetes without medication.
It's frustrating, but the reason everyone doesn't know about this simple solution revolves around money. It's simply more profitable to keep people unaware of how to take control of their own lives.
Diet companies make money by helping people lose a little weight, but not enough to change their lives so they never need to diet again. They make money when we fall off the wagon, blame our lack of will power, and then have to crawl back to the diet company to try again.
Pharmaceutical companies make money when we buy their medicine. They don't have enough financial incentive to keep us healthy enough to never need medicine.
People are slowly starting to realize that they can control their health, and that plant-based diets are healthiest for them.
Stories have been circulating about diabetics who were able to stop using their insulin medicine completely. We hear about actors, politicians, environmentalists, and athletes who find that a vegan diet can make a real difference in the world, and in their bodies. The world is quickly becoming more veg-curious.
The problem is that even after you decide to learn about plant-based diets, it's hard to find all the information in one place.
Thank you, truly, so very much for doing the homework for the rest of us. I have wanted to do this for a long time, but having your website and knowledge is extremely helpful. You are helping me to be a better person.
Since reading your book, I have learned a lot about legumes and grains, they different kinds, recipes, etc. It was extremely helpful! I use the meal planning page alot and the grocery check off list. I also love the ABCs of animal products. All of those items are really useful!I am really grateful for all the help.
There are entire books on factory farms, vegan weight loss, and entire medical research studies on heart disease, diabetes, and many other illnesses. It takes a long time to read all those books, and sometimes you can come out even more confused than you were when you started.
Busy people need simple solutions, and direct answers. You don't have time to be laboring through entire books on nutrition. You can't read a whole text on factory farms. And the nutrition advice nowadays is so scattered and confusing, you just can't spend time trying to wade through it and find the facts.
I did all the work for you. I read the books and compiled the information to help you. A Fresh New Vegan You is a one-stop shop for information about the vegan diet, and it's in language you can understand.
Cathleen, I just want to applaud you on your efforts and let you know how much I enjoyed reading your book, " A Fresh New Vegan You". I personally really connected to a lot you said because my husband is very much a "meat and potatoes" eater and has grown up in the "southern tradition". I have not personally eaten red meat for about three years and his family constantly teases me. I was really nervous about transitioning to Vegan because I was afraid they would just enjoy picking on me way too much. However, your book has given me that extra push and I am excited for this new endeavor and way of life! Thank you so much.
Even if you never want to go vegan, you should know how your diet choices can affect your body and the world around you. If you make just a few small changes to improve your health, you will make a difference. And if many people make the same small changes, we can improve the world.
The bigger your changes, the bigger the world changes. Read my story below to find out why being a vegetarian wasn't a big enough change for me.
I stopped eating meat when I was 12-years old. I had always been an animal lover and my best friend's older sister was a vegetarian, so I thought it was a good idea. Hey, when we're teenagers we decide things based on what other people are doing, right?
I went on for another 12 years like that, still eating fish, eggs, and dairy products.
In the back of my mind it bothered me that I didn't have a solid reason for not eating meat. Literally one day I just picked up a book on veganism, and I haven't stopped reading since.
Very quickly I decided to stop eating all animal products. I transitioned out of all my favorite cheeses and yogurts, and that part was hard.
But once I knew all the facts, I realized that not only did I do the right thing at 12-years old, but I wished I had done more. I wished all those years I had been a vegan.
The change for me was extraordinary. I always thought I was eating a pretty healthy diet- I stayed away from caffeine and sodas, I didn't eat much dessert, I ate plenty of vegetables and fruits and I exercised. I'd never been on a diet, and it never occurred to me that there was anything wrong with my diet.
In fact, I remember feeling that my diet was better than most other people's.
Why then did I suddenly lose enough weight to have to get smaller pants?
I'd never really gained or lost much weight, even throughout college. Out of nowhere my clothes were like drapes. To me, that meant that my "vegetarian" diet wasn't right for me. It was as though I had dairy products clinging to my insides just waiting for their chance to escape.
What I realize now is that I was strongly addicted to cheese, milk, and yogurt. Without them, my body was lighter and more energized. I could sleep better and think more clearly.
I remember a friend saying to me at the beach, "You've always been thin, but you look really good right now, what are you doing?" I told her, "I cut out dairy products." She gave me an odd look, like I wasn't telling the whole story. Surely it couldn't be that easy, right?
Of course, for me it wasn't just about losing weight. I never went into veganism intending to lose weight, it was just a side effect.
I went vegan because I was ready to know the real stories about the farming industry, and I couldn't have been more dismayed at the truth. I wanted to know how climate change was related to diet, and I was shocked that more people aren't told the facts. I also wanted to know if world hunger had anything to do with the diets people eat, and was saddened to know it did.
I read nearly fifty books during the first few months of going vegan, and I started Vegan-Nutritionista.com to share the information with other people. I love hearing that my site is helping people with their journeys, but I realized that I am getting a lot of the same questions from the same types of people.
After reading youur site I've officialy decided to go vegan! Your site is amazing, I'm going to buy your book asap!
The 'New Vegan Ebook' page really had some good info that encouraged me to want to buy your book, & the 'What Do Vegans Eat?' page was also very encouraging. Your personal stories and the personal experience aspect of site was very encouraging. It's nice to hear how other people have made their way to a vegan lifestyle. Thanks once again! I'm on day two, of hopefully a long happy vegan life!

A Cooking Guide to Dried Beans
Learning to cook dried beans is a great money-saver for new vegans. It also gives you control over what additives you put into your beans.
Many beans require different soaking and cooking times, and no matter how many times I've cooked them, I always find myself looking back at my cooking guide to remember how long each cooks.
Don't be intimidated into buying only canned beans. The process is really easy and requires no more "cooking" than knowing how to boil water.
A Cooking Guide to Whole Grains
As with cooking beans, different grains absorb different amounts of water at different speeds. Just like with the bean cooking guide, this is an essential guide to each different bean.
Many people aren't really sure what whole grains are, and this guide explains everything you need to know about grains.
