“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, the whole world would be vegetarian.”

- Linda McCartney, Linda's Kitchen: Simple and Inspiring Recipes for Meals Without Meat

Books and Cookbooks

There are TONS of vegan and vegetarian cookbooks out there. Below are just a few suggestions of some of my favorites.

1. Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. This is the bible of the vegan world. I don’t even know what else to say, but if you want to try some vegan meals, this is the first book you should get.

2. The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. If you’re serious about eating to be healthy, you should read this book. It is full of SCIENCE that eating a plant based diet is healthier, backed fully by evidence.

3. The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. This book helped me tremendously as someone going vegan for animal rights reasons. However, for those of you looking at it for health reasons, it’s also full of information on eating a balanced diet and what to keep in your pantry all the time. Alicia is very down to Earth and so are her recipes.

4. Peas And Thank You by Sarah Matheny. I swear by this woman. She is so sassy and hilarious, and her recipes are some of the best I’ve ever made. Most of them are simple twists on non-vegan meals we all love already. She turns them into healthy alternatives she is proud to serve her two girls.

There are also a handful of cookbooks that have “becoming” in the title, referring to becoming vegetarian or becoming vegan. Although I don’t own any of them myself, I know from friends that they can be very helpful for someone who is transitioning, so look for those, too!
