"i won't eat anything that casts a shadow."

I have reviewed more than one vegan cookbook on here and I enjoy mixing things up with some of the recipes I have found in said cookbooks, but going full on vegan, that's extremely overwhelming. I mean, right? Give me all the recipes you want, but I need to know how I am going to eat on the road, out to dinner, while living a normal human being life. Elizabeth Castoria gets all sorts of realistic in her book titled How to Be Vegan: Tips, Tricks and Strategies for Cruelty Free Eating, Living, Dating, Travel, Decorating, and More!

Castoria somehow makes becoming a vegan sound fun as she goes through the motions in a nonjudgmental way, explaining her 159 strategies to living a life without animal products. She does begin by saying that it is impossible to live in today's world and not come in contact with animal products in some fashion. So don't waste your time being a crazy person, and focus on the changes that will make the biggest impact in your life, and those changes will help change our world. Every little bit helps. Still skeptical? Watch any factory farm video on YouTube and you'll have no issues dropping meat from your plate, and your life, and you'll probably begin having nightmares. OR you could just keep reading through the book and discover that you don't have to go full vegan to make a difference in your health and the planet.
