Going Veggie

Trudy Slabosz
Jan 30, 2016

Changing your lifestyle is not an easy choice, so when taking on a challenge like becoming a vegetarian, chances are you would like for the transition to be as easy as possible. Trudy Slabosz shows readers how to ease the transition with her short and sweet book Going Veggie. In it, readers will find a very concise plan for cutting out meat from their diets in 30 days. The information is straightforward and not weighed down by intimidating medical jargon, and Slabosz's voice is encouraging and relaxed. She experienced happiness and health benefits when she cut out meat from her diet, and she feels that readers can, too.

I appreciate her honesty about the advice she gives, and her openness to the various types of vegetarianism (no meat or dairy at all versus keeping dairy and eggs in the rotation) made me believe I could take the transition at my own pace. The majority of her recipes are delicious--although I cannot stand fake cheese and had trouble with a few recipes where that was called for--and I will definitely continue to follow her on her blog Veggie Num Num. Slabosz helped me change my lifestyle, and I highly recommend Going Veggie for people wanting to incorporate more vegetarian dishes into their diet.
