I've never used this hackneyed phrase before, but this book is worth its weight in gold. More than gold, actually.

If you asked me 6 months ago if I'd ever go vegan, I'd have told you that you were off your rocker. Give up meat? Maybe. Give up butter, eggs, cheese, and cream? Nope. No way.
Long story short, five months ago I watched a video showing what animals went through in the meat, dairy, and egg industries. My world changed instantly and I knew I'd never touch another animal product again. So I was left to fumble about a bit on my own and gradually educate myself on how to do this healthfully and sanely, all while hearing dire warnings from well-meaning family and friends. Luckily, I discovered this author's podcast pretty early on in the process (Vegetarian Food for Thought at compassionatecooks.com), so that helped me enormously. (She has, however, ruined other podcasts for me, as hers are so good.) I have never been happier. That sounds trite, but I could not put it any simpler. I am a very happy person now. (And much much healthier!) But I really wished I had had this book... read more
Absolutely phenomenal! Colleen cements her place as a leading vegan voice.

I've been a vegan for 8 years, and for the last 7.9 or so of those years, I've been an unabashed and exuberant vegan advocate.
The problem is I've always had difficulty identifying that "one book" I would want to give to someone who, for one reason or another, has become interested in veganism and a compassionate lifestyle. For the spiritual, I might recommend Will Tuttle's "The World Peace Diet". For animal lovers, perhaps Gail Eisnitz's unflinching "Slaughterhouse" is the way to go. For someone health-focused, I might recommend something by Barnard or Esselstyn or McDougall. If I didn't know the veg-curious person that well... well, you can't go too wrong with something by John Robbins, right?
But no more. There is a single book that I can recommend anyone, and that book is "The 30-Day Vegan Challenge".
What a beautiful and astonishing book this is. I was lucky enough to get a copy two days before the rest of the world at book's release party in San... read more
Amazing book! Get yourself a copy!

I'm a huge fan of Colleen's cookbooks and absolutely love her wonderful, informative podcasts. She does amazing work and is a fabulous, joyful spokesperson for a vegan lifestyle! I'm so pleased that's she's written a "how-to" guide to going vegan!
This book is aimed at those interested in trying out a vegan diet or those ready to transition to veganism, but is a worthy addition to any vegan library. Each chapter tackles new issues, ranging from stocking your healthful vegan pantry to menu planning to handling social issues. Each step of the way, Colleen packs in nutrition and health information, as well as ethical considerations. There are more than 100 vegan recipes, so you don't even need to buy a cookbook to take the challenge! Her recipes are easy to follow and execute; they don't have huge, long lists of ingredients with multiple steps. In other words, even if you haven't made a lot of vegan dishes in the past, you'll be able to make some delicious meals! I can't wait... read more
