A great starter book for the newbies (like me)

Full disclosure and please no one get all over excited and slam me, but while I am trying to get more meatless/vegetarian options into my diet I do not intend going all Vegan at this time. I'm cutting out red meats and a lot of poultry (except Turkey and that is getting sooooooooooo boring) and even in Seattle good seafood can be hard to find unless one wants to deal with fighting downtown traffic, the crowds and paying an arm and a leg for the privi

Background:
Over the fourteen years I've been a (ovo-lacto) vegetarian, I've often thought of becoming a vegan, but usually discarded it because it seemed like it would be too difficult, and really, how could I give up cheese? Especially my favorite comfort food, macaroni and cheese. Sure, there's soy cheese but it has been harder to find, not to mention, more expensive. However, I've recently discovered what rennet is and cannot stomach ever eating cheese again. This comes years after I'd alread

Alexandra Jamieson, Vegan Cooking for Dummies (Wiley, 2011)

Once—just once—I'd like to come across a vegan cookbook, especially a vegan cookbook that is specifically geared towards beginners, that isn't written like it's preaching to the choir. I keep looking for them, because I'm actually interested in vegan cooking. Not because I'm a vegan myself, but I like finding interesting alternatives for ingredients that don't often get used in American cooking (how many recipes featuring celeriac, for e

So, I'm really starting to understand why the author couldn't handle being vegan after 13 years and decided she was going to eat animal product again; she deprives herself and puts herself high up on a pedestal.

I enjoyed the recipes in this book, I really did, and many of them I added to my new vegan repertoire and I'm really excited about trying them... but the author... oh... god... please no.

She's preachy(even though she swears she isn't), doesn't have her facts straight on the animal cruelt

Trying to orchestrate a complete change to my eating and put a positive twist on my lifestyle I ordered this book. Reading it made my mind click…eating vegan isn’t prohibitive its liberating. Know what goes in my mouth and how it will affect my body should be everything especially considering that my body is my temple. The definitions, menus, recipes, exchange ideas and seasonings should change how I eat. Great!

This book is a good resource for the beginner cook...whether new to cooking or new to the vegan lifestyle. I rate this at three stars more from the perspective of things I've learned from it could have been of higher practical value to me in my day-to-day life.

I'm not a vegan, but this book is great for anyone learning to cook with more fruits, vegetables, legumes, and other healthy foods. Very thorough and lots of great recipes.
