7 in stock
Going vegan is not always easy for kids and teenagers. Living under their parent’s roof, probably not buying their own food and friends, family, and teachers questioning and challenging their lifestyle choices. In this essential guide for the curious, aspiring and current teenage vegan, Claire Askew draws on her own experience as a vegan and provides the tools for going vegan and staying vegan. Whether readers are teenagers who are thinking about going vegan or are already vegan, this is the ultimate resource written by a young person for young people.
This book is well-written, informative and full of good advice. It was recommended to me by a friend, and although it’s a guide for vegan teenagers, we’re both adults and found the advice highly relevant. For example, Claire Askew explains how best to deal with friends who don’t “get” veganism – something I come across a lot! She definitely knows her onions when it comes to dietary advice; if you’re not sure where you’re going to get your vitamins and proteins from, this book explains it all, as well as what hidden ingredients to avoid in food. The info and statistics on the treatment of farm animals is very well-researched from reputable sources, so it’s more than just shock factor. Claire often uses personal references, which gives the book a human, informal feel, making the lone-vegan reader feel less isolated. Overall, a brilliant little book that will make you think, guide you, and help you stick to your choice.
