The Joyful Vegan

We rated this book:


Sometimes, making the decision to go vegan is the easy part. Whatever the motivation–your health, climate change, or the plight of animals raised for food–many people find that cutting out meat, milk, and eggs is a no-brainer. What’s harder is staying vegan in a world where vegans face curiosity, suspicion, and downright hostility. In The Joyful Vegan, author, public speaker, and podcast host Colleen Patrick-Goudreau delves deep into the many things that motivate vegans, the obstacles and mental blocks they may encounter, and the ways they can keep on the path that feels right to them even when facing pushback from all sides. Patrick-Goudreau discusses many of the mental stages vegans go through and the many challenges we face, both from others and from within ourselves. Readers will revel in the author’s calm validation of their feelings, gain strategies for dealing with issues that may arise throughout our vegan journeys, and find the encouragement we need to keep moving forward. No matter what drives a particular reader’s journey into veganism, there are ideas and tips in here that will benefit us all, whether it’s diffusing difficult aggressive conversations with naysayers, channeling our passions into appropriate forms of activism, or even just learning to manage our own anger and sadness about animal agriculture. The Joyful Vegan is a must-read for any and all vegans and plant-based eaters.
