A comprehensive guide for the vegetarian-curious teen

The Smart Girl's Guide to Going Vegetarian is an irreverent, supportive, agenda-free guide to giving meat (and perhaps more) the boot. Rather than preach about one specific brand of vegetarianism, this book welcomes a young meat-averse reader to the fold, whether she identifies with a title like "vegetarian" or not, and empowers her to make smart and savvy choices as she shifts into the world of plant-based diets. The book includes forty meat-free recipes that the whole family will love. Full of useful information, helpful tips, delish recipes, and more, this guide will help every reader be cool, confident, and definitely not a carnivore.

What would you love. Love what you eat.

No labels. No fuss. It's not about what you call yourself--it's about how you feel. Whether you're going vegan, vegetarian, fish-only, chicken-only, or all veggies except grandma's famous pigs-in-a-blanket, this book is your new best friend.

Eating less meat can boost your energy, help you lose weight, and it's better for the environment. If you're looking to cut down on meat or cut it out completely, here you'll find awesome advice and the answers you need to make it work for you.

Get the Scoop On:

?Daily meal ideas and easy recipes even your non-veggie friends will want to try
?How to convince your family this isn't just a fad or a phase
?Finding good food when you're away from home: veggie-friendly restaurants, colleges, and travel spots

I really liked this book. As my husband and I age, we have been trying to find ways to add more vegetables to our diet. Our vegetarian son moved in with us, which made a great opportunity to try new things. The author does a great job of validating every choice. Her recipes are a smart way to get started. We appreciate the opportunity to work on some new recipes and open our minds to nutritional information to live a healthier life.

I loved this book! Being a sort-of vegetarian for the past 3 or 4 years, this book gave me the push I needed to go all the way without cramming vegetarianism down my throat. It was done in a fun format, and was nicely written, so I learned about nutrition and vegetarianism in a fun and engaging way. I also liked that she respected the fact that vegetarianism is a choice, not a restriction, so it's OK to eat meat sometimes, she wasn't diehard vegetarian. There were also helpful tips about finding places with vegetarian food (including colleges), and how to specify when ordering to get a dish that meets your needs. There were also some really yummy looking recipes, too (vegetarian tacos, asian crunchy salad, roasted chickpeas, kale chips, etc.). She also gave tips about how to pack on-the-go food when you're in college, or don't have time to eat, and give lists on what foods/snacks/candies are vegan and vegetarian. The whole thing was very informative. I would really recommend this book, even if you're just curious about vegetarianism, want fun recipes, or are thinking of going vegan/lacto-ovo/no red meat. This was really good!
