I heard somewhere that "you cannot be a healthy vegetarian and not read." I find this to be true. Without the various books I read, being a vegetarian would have been more difficult. Which books or websites have been helpful for you?

Sean | 1 comments Heya! I agree completely - some folks may just be lucky, but the rest of us need to learn how to eat right (vegetarian or not).

I've been a big fan of Dr. Michael Greger at

He has some great fact sheets and electronic recordings of lectures he's given on the site - he does a good job of boiling down the important facts while avoiding creating just another sterile nutrition guide.

Alien  Citizen | 5 comments What an awesome idea for a goodreads group! I highly suggest the wonderful, imaginative, tried and true cookbook, The Passionate Vegetarian, by Crescent Dragonwagon. She used to run a vegetarian restaurant and wish I could have frequented it because her recipes are wideranging and delicious. It's not a small book but covers its bases and more.

Amber Anderson (amabre) Mad Cowboy by Howard Lyman: Sometimes painful to read but this book definetely helped cement my disgust toward animal products. When people ask why I don't eat meat I find myself almost quoting this book. Pretty photos, vegan recipes, fun stuff. I like her.

Rai | 33 comments Hey veggie peeps,

Rory Freedman has a brand new Facebook fan page:

I just "liked" it :)



"I made the choice to be vegan because I will not eat (or wear, or use) anything that could have an emotional response to its death or captivity. I can well imagine what that must feel like for our non-human friends - the fear, the terror, the pain - and I will not cause such suffering to a fellow living being." - Rai Aren

Jo | 12 comments I am addicted to reading and researching the health side of veganism and about healing and wellbeing using a plant based diet. I have trouble following it all though but I find it really interesting.
