You don’t have to be vegan to love the smoothies in this book. I’m not a vegan myself, but I turned to 365 Vegan Smoothies because it looked like it would offer a range of healthy recipes to help you consume a variety of fruits and vegetables. I was not disappointed! With 365 recipes, you will find something to meet your nutritional needs and individual tastes.
Beg: a Radical New Way of Regarding Animals, with its sweet-faced dog peering at me from a soft, sage green background, imploring me to “regard him in a new way” didn’t prepare me for the most heavy-handed, condescending book I’ve ever experienced. Freedman doesn’t actually present “a radical new way of regarding animals” so much as beat readers over the head with how perfectly enlightened she’s become and then shame us into submitting to her will.
Despite what my other reviews have covered, I do have friends or occasions where special diets are needed. Vegan Brunch was just what I needed when vegan & vegetarian friends stopped over for a weekend. It’s arranged by type of food, divided up in chapters such as The Savory, The Sweet, and The Toppings. There are many tips on buying and preparing vegan ingredients, setting a table for brunch, and tips for certain recipes. The recipes are not overly complicated nor are they extraordinarily time consuming.
