The Best Books On Veganism

Even if you’re living the vegan lifestyle merely for the health benefits, I recommend learning more about the food industry and the animal cruelty associated with factory farms.

Once you learn the facts, it’s very hard to turn your back on it, and so even if you experience a brief lack in will power for simply keeping yourself healthy, you’ll have the motivation of knowing the truth in the back of your head. Yes, you may want to taste that brie so badly, but because you’ve read Whitewash, you know what goes into producing it, and you’re less likely to grab for it.

This page is an update to an existing page on Vegan Nutritionista on the best vegan books.

World Peace Diet

The World Peace Diet is one of the more important books on veganism. Will Tuttle describes our human connection to the world and how it’s impossible to eat something without that thing becoming part of us. He uncovers the growing truth about disease related to eating animals, as well as the world’s move toward a more compassionate, kind, loving, and therefore, meat-free lifestyle.

Mad Cowboy

Though MAD COWBOY: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat was written years ago, Howard Lyman’s book is so fundamental to providing a case for veganism. As an ex-rancher, he knows the ins and outs of the cattle ranching industry and for him to have decided to stop eating meat underlines the core problems with the food industry. It’s also a great read for that manly man in your life who loves his meat and refuses to give it up.


Whitewash: The Disturbing Truth About Cow's Milk and Your Health is a new book all about the milk industry; its ruthless promotion by dairy industry and the incredibly long list of diseases associated with drinking cow’s milk. This is a must-read

Sexual Politics

In The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-vegetarian Critical Theory, 20th Anniversary Edition, Carol Adams makes an interesting case for how animals used for meat and women are treated similarly in our male-centric society. She discusses how the words used to degrade women are the same as those used for animals, and how women are just cuts of meat in our society’s eyes. This book is different than anything you’ve read on veganism, and will open your mind.
