We know many of you are not vegan. Maybe you are interested in trying out plant-based recipes every now and then, you may practice abstention from animal products during a religious fast, or you may be trying to eat healthier foods. Do you think you could try a vegan diet for 30 days?
Our dear friend, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, has just released her new book, the 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
After so many years of being vegan, using available materials to help support a plant-based diet, I can say I have never seen a more comprehensive book for people interested in making the transition. The 30-Day Vegan Challenge covers every aspect of the vegan experience. Any question you may have is addressed here. (If you have ever thought you couldn’t be vegan because you’d miss cheese, there’s a chapter for you!)
Not only does Colleen cover these issues, she also provides essential information about nutrition (reviewed by dietitians), menus for the entire 30-Days, and recipes that are tried and true. We know because we’ve been using these recipes for years now!!!
Colleen starts out by encouraging you to do a bit of preparation – get a buddy (this is important!), take some measurements (some of the changes you will experience can be measured!), and take a 3-Day food diary before you start (to see what you really normally eat). Then, each of the 30-Days has a chapter full of specific, detailed, researched information about an issue surrounding veganism. Some of these include: Eating healthfully and affordably (Day 2), Eating out and speaking up (Day 8), Discovering that there is life after cheese (Day 12), Putting to rest the great protein myth (Day 15), Celebrating the holidays (Day 25), Achieving and sustaining weight loss (Day 28)…..
Colleen ends with the menus, full of favorite recipes from her cookbooks and ideas for easy, simple meals.
This book is now available electronically – yes even in Egypt. You can purchase it through Amazon and read it on a Kindle reader (either on your computer, your iPhone, iPad, etc.). For more about this, read this post. (***Not all publishers allow their books to be downloaded in Egypt, but the 30-Day Vegan Challenge is available, so click away!)
If you are interested in checking out other works by Colleen we would suggest her podcast, Vegetarian Food for Thought (it’s free!!! and can be downloaded to your computer or any other mobile device). Of course, you might also find her other books useful:
