Like her previous titles (Living a Charmed Life; Fat, Broke & Lonely No More!; etc.), Moran’s feisty, fun, and fearless guide to eating vegan on your own terms will win her many fans. A vegan decades before it was either a popular or practical choice, life/health coach Moran says she took baby steps toward a consistent, confident animal product–free lifestyle. She offers four methods and 40 such steps to help carnivores and vegetarians of every stripe—lacto (dairy), ovo (egg), lacto-ovo (dairy and egg), or pescetarian (fish) eaters—find superior health benefits from a plant-based diet while saving animals, protecting the environment, and fighting food-industry giants. Assuring readers that “being vegan is about conviction, not perfection,” she claims that the big picture of ending animal cruelty and ecological crisis trumps nutritional fine points. As a primer on veganism, her effort touches all of the basics. Those eager to lose weight, increase energy, and offset stress and aging while achieving optimum nutrition and not spending a lot of money on expensive organic ingredients will find numerous suggestions and easy recipes to help them reach their goals. As a comprehensive and highly motivating resource for upping the bar on quality of life, Moran’s book takes veganism to the next level. (June)
