Aspiring vegans will find priceless guidance in 'Main Street Vegan'

Victoria Moran has a long and impressive history of producing groundbreaking and comprehensive books that both encourage and celebrate the choice to live a vegan life. And although I have been a fan of hers for some time, her newest book, “Main Street Vegan: Everything You Need to Know to Eat Healthy and Live Compassionately in the Real World,” written in conjunction with her daughter, Adair, is the one I wish I had fifteen years ago when first embarking upon this vegetarian/vegan journey.

Working to debunk many of the still prevalent vegan health myths, and addressing the confusion and a number of the hurdles faced by many new and aspiring vegans, with this book, and Moran as your guide, failure simply ceases to be an option.

Whether you live in New York or North Dakota, Moran has the insight, tips, guidance and encouragement you need to succeed in making the best decision of your life. This is the book I will recommend from now on when asked what one book someone should read when thinking about going vegan. And it is the one book every vegan should gift to all of his or her still carnivorous friends and family. Buy it, read it, and pass it on.
