Here at Vegan Outreach, we believe that providing helpful and informative pro-veg resources is as important as informing people about the animal cruelty that takes place in our food system. When first introduced to these issues, it’s not uncommon for people to feel overwhelmed, sad, and asking, “What can I do to help?” or “Where do I begin?”
That’s why we make sure our Outreach Coordinators and volunteers always have several Guide to Cruelty-Free Eating booklets on hand. That way, for anyone who receives a leaflet and is interested in making changes to their diets, our leafleters can easily provide recipe ideas, nutrition information, and store-bought vegan food recommendations by simply handing them the Guide.
We also like to support other vegans who feel that providing veg resources is a vital part of the advocacy equation. One of those individuals is vegan health educator, blogger, and author, Jackie Day.
Jackie is the author of the newly released vegan resource book, The Vegan Way: 21 Days to a Happier, Healthier Plant-Based Lifestyle That Will Transform Your Home, Your Diet, and You. This book is an awesome starting point for anyone who’s interested in moving toward a vegan lifestyle. It covers everything from the “why”—animals, the environment, and personal health—to a detailed breakdown of the “how”—food, cosmetics, clothing, travel, household items, entertainment and more.
The book is divided into several parts, 21 to be exact, and it’s laid out in a way that gradually helps veg-curious people move toward a more compassionate lifestyle.
There’s a lot to think about here, but don’t worry, this isn’t a sprint; it’s a marathon, with comfy shoes, yummy food, and plenty of time to rest and reflect. Over the next 21 days, you’ll be getting new tips, tricks, and ideas to enable you to make super-easy daily changes that will blossom into wonderful lifelong habits.
Jackie’s sensibility, playfulness, and humor make this comprehensive book a quick and non-intimidating read. Oh, and one of the many great things about this book is that Jackie sprinkles in a few of her wonderfully delicious recipes, which will undoubtedly motivate readers to get up and head toward the kitchen to cook!
And guess what? We’re giving you a little taste of Jackie’s culinary magic. Check out today’s recipe—Sweet Sunday French Crepes.
