Title: Going Veggie
Author: Tracy Slabosz
Publisher: Ulysses Press
Going vegetarian is a lifestyle change that millions strive for. But it isn’t as simple as “eat this and not that.” Such a radical lifestyle change can be daunting in the face of a culture and food industry based on eating animals. How does one get the necessary protein and nutrition without eating meat? How can one enjoy delicious, fulfilling meals when the main course has lost its primary ingredient?
This helpful guide will answer readers’ every question and concern about going vegetarian. More importantly, it offers a step-by-step, 30-day course that helps readers navigate the tough spots and reach their goal without suffering along the way. Meal plans that gradually wean one off a meat-based diet, recipes for foods that are not only delicious but packed with essential nutrients, tips on how to deal with ordering at restaurants, and even strategies for making holiday dinners that are normally turkey-centric are all in the book. Written by Trudy Slabosz, a popular blogger and longtime vegetarian who has found true joy in the lifestyle, Going Veggie! relates her zest for a meat-free life in a way that will inspire readers and assure them that going veg is going to be great!
When I received this book one of the first things I did was thumb through it. Immediately I send one recipe over to my best friend for the Lentil Bolognese Lasagna. She loves lentils but I am not so much a fan. My grandmother use to make them with spinach and top them on a sub roll with provolone cheese. Not my favorite item as the smell was just awful. This book really does include some amazing recipes. The Tempeh Pot Pies are hands down the perfect winter meal. You may serve it up individual style for a comforting vegetarian meal. The next on my list to try will be the Soy and Szechuan Pepper Tofu with Wasabi Pea Puree. This is definitely one I can mix into our meal planning and they would never know it’s so healthy! The book includes wonderful information on meal planning and how to replace meats with the right ingredients to make sure you get the nutrients you need. Super important if you plan to go vegan or vegetarian. This book is a keeper for me. Hiding it now into my nightstand and will slowly stick recipes into our weekly meal plan. Let’s see if they notice!
