Book: How to go Vegan – and giveaway!

Veganuary book - How To Go Vegan

Veganuary‘s over and maybe you took part and maybe you didn’t. Maybe you thought, ‘Pah, I ain’t jumping on no bandwagon. Especially one that involves not eating cheese.’ Or maybe you did take part but struggled in the supermarket trying to decipher what was vegan and what wasn’t and would have quite happily lived on non-dairy Ben & Jerry’s for the month of January had it not cost five pound fucking fifty pee a tub.

It’s easy enough to find vegan recipes to cook for yourself at home as there are billions of vegan cookbooks to buy and billions of vegan food blogs to browse but what about the other vegany stuff? The ‘why should I be vegan’ stuff and the ‘eating out in restaurants and at friends’ houses’ stuff and the ‘what is B12 and why do I need it’ stuff? All this stuff is enough to make you say ‘stuff it’ (or at least it would if it were still the 70s and an age when people still said things like ‘stuff it’ instead of ‘bollocks to that’ or whatever the equivalent is in young-person speak).

This is where How to go Vegan comes in. It bridges that gap between wanting to go vegan and actually being vegan, because being vegan doesn’t just mean not eating animals or their bodily fluids, i.e. it’s not just a diet but a lifestyle. Of course, if you just want to be a dietary vegan, that’s fine too. I’m not any kind of vegan so you’ll find no judginess here. It’s not compulsory to wear a t-shirt proclaiming your vegan-ness or get a big V tattooed on you like some vegans do either (why they do this, I do not know and it’s unfortunately not covered in this book so you’ll have to ask a t-shirted, tattooed vegan – just go to any vegan festival and you’ll bump into dozens of them).

It’s a neat little compact hard-backed book that will sit well on your shelf with your vegan cookbooks (or any other books really).

The Vegan lifestyle is very popular and I can see its advantages – however I do not get the reason for not eating eggs! my sister has free range chickens that wander her 2 acre garden in pure enjoyment for the whole of their natural lives. When they lay an egg they walk off abandoning the eggs. Then we collect them or if we are not quick enough the Jackdaws who live in the false chimneys of the cottage have a feast. Surely if they are unfertilised eggs it is not a problem is it to eat them?
