For anyone considering becoming a Vegan as their New Year's resolution, these are the benefits and some of the things you need to consider.
Huge health benefits
By eating a plant-based diet, you're avoiding meat, fish, dairy and eggs. That means less saturated fat and cholesterol in your diet. Vegans also tend to be very conscious about the quality of food they eat, so will be buying organic and fair trade produce. You can actually get every vitamin and mineral you need from a vegan diet, including protein, calcium and iron. These are particularly important for vegans, as they're more at risk of deficiencies. For example, vegans need to ensure they get enough Vitamin B12, which can only be found in animal products. The Vegan Society recommends taking a Vitamin B12 supplement, if you're not eating fortified foods. One small caveat though: it's a good idea to take a Vitamin D supplement as this is found in fish and eggs and isn't found in vegan foods. You'll also be cutting down on processed foods, which means less sugar and salt. You'll have a smaller carbon footprint The UK's Vegan Society estimates that the average individual's carbon footprint reduces by 1.5 tCO2e by going vegan. By doing this, you'll also be reducing your food and water consumption, meaning you're having a smaller impact on the environment. There's also an economic benefit to being vegan. As less food is wasted, the less you'll need to buy. The vegan industry is booming More and more people have been turning to veganism and the market is growing. According to research by Nielsen, the number of UK vegans has almost risen by 900% in the last decade, which is about 360,000 people. Almost half of non-vegans (47%) admit to having tried veganism, with many people following the veganuary campaign.
Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons // Nava Atlas
I enjoyed this book. It provides a wide variety of easy to make nutritious and incredibly tasty soups and stews. I have made many of the recipes and have gotten rave reviews from everyone that has eaten the food. I have been vegan for almost 40 years and have been searching for soup recipes that are not just thickened flour based gravy or cream based sauces. This book is filled with recipes that are interesting, nutritious, and very tasteful. I enjoyed many of the soups so much that I made them more than once. I am a very picky eater and I am very fussy about how my soup is made. I am a soup fanatic. I have never been disappointed with any of the recipes in this book. I recommend this book to anyone that is vegan, has a loved one that is vegan, is looking for a way to eat more healthy, or anyone that just likes good tasting food.

Veganomicon // Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Terry Hope Romero
I’ve been wanting to write a review of this book since I first bought it, but every time I tried to write something the words just wouldn’t flow. It wasn’t that I didn’t have anything to say, but that this cookbook is so great I wanted to take the time to do it justice. I’ve been using this book for at least a year now, and I have to say that I have never looked at another cookbook the way I look at Veganomicon. This book is my go-to book for basically every meal. There is a great variety of recipes in this book, and they are all very easy to follow. The ingredients are all things I usually have in my kitchen, and the recipes are so easy it’s ridiculous. I’ve cooked so many meals from this book that I can’t even remember them all. Some of the recipes that I love are the samosas, the ho chi mai, the polenta-crusted eggplant, the gazpacho, the “egg” salad, “crab” cakes, and the black bean brownies. The cookbook has a great variety of recipes for every meal, and I don’t know how many times I’ve found myself cooking something from this book. I almost always use my parents’ copy, though, because I have my own copy to use for school. I really don’t know how to say more without just telling you to go buy the book, but I’ll try. If you want to be vegan, and especially if you want to cook for yourself, this book is a must. I really don’t know why I haven’t written this review before now. I guess if I’m forced to write a review now, it’ll force me to read the book again and see what all I’ve been missing.
The Homemade Vegan Pantry // Miyoko Schinner
The Homemade Vegan Pantry is a must-have for any vegan kitchen. It has a great selection of vegan recipes that will please the whole family. The recipes are not fancy, but are tasty and easy to make. The book is organized by topic, such as sauces, basics, spreads, salads, burgers & sandwiches, soups, stews, and desserts. Each section has a variety of recipes that are easy to find and follow. My favorite section was the desserts. There are a variety of recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth. For example, the cookies and bars are great for snacking. The cupcakes and cake recipes are great for birthdays and other celebrations. I also like the sauces, spreads and condiments section. There are a variety of recipes that are great for sandwiches, burgers, and even salad dressings. She also has an interesting recipe for vegan mayonnaise. My kids love vegan mayonnaise on their sandwiches. The best thing about Miyoko’s recipes is that they are not complicated. She does not use hard-to-find ingredients or impossible-to-pronounce ingredients. She keeps her recipes simple, yet delicious. I enjoy cooking for my family. The recipes in this book are perfect for my busy schedule. I like recipes that I can make with basic ingredients. I also like recipes that are easy to follow. I can’t wait to try out some of the recipes in this book. I recommend The Homemade Vegan Pantry for anyone who wants to learn how to cook vegan recipes. I like this book so much that I am going to buy it for my sister, who is a vegetarian.
Title: One Pot Vegan // Roxy Pope, Ben Pook
Readers of the blog will know that I have a longstanding love for Roxy Pope’s books. Her books are my go-to cookbooks when I want to try something new. She is also the author of the blog Cake ‘n Knife. One Pot Vegan is different to her other books. It is written in a different style. It is divided into chapters, each with a different focus. The chapters include:
I love how easy it is to flip straight to the section I want. The chapters are short and to the point. The recipes are not split out by main course, side dish or dessert. They are all mixed together, so you can choose whatever you fancy – it’s the perfect cookbook for busy people. You can find a recipe for whatever takes your fancy. The recipes are easy to follow and the instructions are simple and easy to read. The photographs are beautiful – they look like they have been taken by a professional photographer. There are recipes for things I have never heard of – like Nutty Butter, Chocolate Hazelnut Spread, and Veggie-Beef Burgers. There are also recipes for things that are common in our house, like Sweet Potato Fries and BBQ Burgers. They are all simple to follow and delicious to eat! I love the simplicity of the recipes. The recipes are very straightforward and easy to follow. Most of the recipes have only a few steps. The recipes are easy to read and easy to follow. The instructions are clear and precise. I have tried a few recipes from the book already and they have all been a success. I have made the Nutty Butter, Sweet Potato Fries, Veggie-Beef Burgers, and the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread. The recipes are all easy to make. The recipes are all delicious. The recipes are all simple – even my children can follow them. I am going to make the rest of the recipes from the book in the coming weeks. I am sure that they will all be just as good. I love Roxy Pope
