Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Can you meet your calcium needs if you’re only eating plant-based foods? Is a vegan pregnancy safe? What about the link between soy foods and breast cancer? How does a plant-based diet affect weight loss, aging, and fertility? In Vegan for Her, dietitian Virginia Messina tackles the issues most pertinent to women who follow or who are considering a vegan diet, and JL Fields provides health-supportive recipes and tips for taking your veganism beyond the plate. With specific guidance on meeting women’s unique nutritional needs throughout the lifecycle and information about food choices that relate to many health concerns, Vegan for Her is a practical and realistic guide to making sure your plant-based diet is as healthy as it can be.

Review:

"This comprehensive, text-heavy vegan guide for women is divided into three parts: 'Going Vegan,' 'Healthy Eating for All The Times of a Woman's Life,' and 'Lifelong Health for Vegan Women.' Sections on pregnancy, aging, cancer prevention, and guidance for vegan athletes are among the specialized chapters, allowing readers to pick-and-choose what's applicable to their needs. A nonpreachy and encouraging tone permeates this title. Messina (blogger and coauthor of Vegan for Life), along with Fields (a life coach and blogger), provides lifestyle tips and breaks down research and studies into accessible, easy-to-understand language, supporting advice with concrete findings. A collection of 50 recipes for new and experienced vegan cooks covers breakfast, with selections such as smoothies, porridge, and casseroles; lunch options such as salads and soups; and dinner entrees, as well as a sampling of desserts. Selections such as the easy tofu pumpkin soup, Asian crockpot chili, and black-eyed pea and collard green pizza are interesting and hearty enough to tempt even hardcore carnivores. A lack of photos and basic design keeps the book's look modest, but it's a strong choice for women who follow, or want to follow, a plant-based diet. Agent: Angela Miller, Miller Agency."
