Although the word “vegan” has gained traction in the public consciousness in recent years, misunderstandings and misconceptions still prevail about what “vegan” means. “On Being Vegan" sets out to dispel these myths and demystify what it means to simply live according to the values of compassion, kindness, and wellness we already possess.

Born out of Patrick-Goudreau’s life-changing talks and podcast episodes, these thoughtfully crafted essays reflect her unique blend of passion, humor, and common sense and get to the heart of what it means to be vegan.

*Chapter 1 is the author’s own personal story from compassionate child to desensitized adult.

*Chapter 2, “Defining Vegan,” comprises the origins of the word “vegan,” its definition, and its meaning.

*Chapter 3 offers a brief history of 2,500 years of ethical veganism.

*Chapter 4, “Why Vegan?” provides an overview of some of the most compelling reasons people leave animal products off their plates.

*Chapter 5 offers a response to some of the romanticized excuses we make for eating and using animals.

*Chapter 6 offers insight into the ethical considerations around eating chickens’ eggs.

*In Chapter 7 answers questions about “humane” milk.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The perfect book for vegans and vegan-curious 30. März 2013
Von Michelle Laurie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has a great website, some of the best vegan cookbooks around, the 30-Day Vegan Challenge, and the unrivalled Food for Thought podcast. But for a long time I've been wishing she would write a book like this, something that would include her own story, as well as lots of insights on veganism. She's finally done it. This book is a collection of her personal essays on becoming vegan and what that means for her. She addresses topics such as:

-The benefits of a vegan lifestyle;

-Nutrition and food labels;

-The myth of the "perfect" vegan, and with her usual down-to-earth grace, explains the uselessness and futility of "purity";

-The emotional issues many newbies may experience, such as guilt and anger. She doesn't simply pat you on the back, but offers genuine help and guidance, with tips on things you can actively do to help you move forward;

-The criticisms that many people have of veganism;

-Speaking to non-vegans about veganism; how to be the "vegan in the room";

-The myths of "humane" meat, "free-range" eggs, and happy milk-"giving" cows.

And although some of these topics are addressed in other books on veganism, Colleen covers them in a completely different way and presents unique information.

What I love about her message is that she doesn't try to tell you what to do. There's never any judgement or criticism. Colleen tells her truth, presents the facts, sheds light on common fallacies, and helps you to see things from different perspectives. She then leaves you to make up your own mind. That feeling of "I never thought of it like that" is unavoidable when reading this book.

If you're already a regular listener to her podcast, a lot of the material here will not be brand new, but it's great to have it in such an accessible format. It's also a great little book to give to friends and family to help them understand your reasons for choosing this lifestyle. There's also a resource list at the end of the book with recommended reading and websites.

If you're a new vegan or curious about veganism, this is the perfect book to start with. It's concise, engaging, answers lots of questions, and will arm you with the information you need to make an informed decision. If you enjoy this book, you'll love her podcasts and Vegan's Daily Companion: 365 Days of Inspiration for Cooking, Eating, and Living Compassionately

Here's one of my favourite quotes from the book:

"Whenever we're answering questions about being vegan, it helps to have a clear intention, and I think if our intention is 'to speak the truth' rather than 'to convert someone,' we will be very effective spokespeople for this incredible way of living."

5.0 von 5 Sternen A terrific roadmap for becoming--and staying--vegan! 24. März 2013
Von Mark Hawthorne - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Do vegans have to be perfect? What are the nutritional considerations of a plant-powered diet? Didn't human beings evolve to eat meat? With "On Being Vegan," Colleen Patrick-Goudreau tackles these questions and many other issues, demonstrating once again why she is a leading voice in the worldwide movement toward a more compassionate way of living. Drawing on her years of experience as an animal activist, vegan chef, cooking instructor, public speaker, and confidante, Colleen explores what it means to live a fully awakened life -- a life steeped in an abundance of choices, flavors, and new experiences. Whether you're a longtime vegan or still thinking of taking the leap, you'll find "On Being Vegan" to be a healthy helping of commonsense advice and myth-busting. This is a terrific roadmap for going -- and staying -- vegan!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another Patrick-Goudreau Gem! 25. März 2013
Von mj - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has once again managed to pack a small, easy-to-read volume with invaluable insights that are enlightening for both new and longtime vegans. Even though I've been active in the vegan movement for over 20 years and have written my own books on the subject, "On Being Vegan" provided me with new wisdom and a deeper level of personal empowerment. I highly recommend this book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read for everyone! 19. April 2013
Von Patty - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I love this book! Ms. Patrick-Goudreau is a wealth of knowledge on all aspects of veganism, animal-rights, and living a fulfilling compassionate life. Her command of the subject matter is exceptional, and this book is very well written. I learned many things reading the book, and it reinforced the things I was familiar with. She has such a deep and thorough understanding of human nature, animals, factory farming, health, environment, cooking, and living a full and rewarding life, and it all shines through in her writing. Whether you are a long-time vegan, newly vegan, veg-curios, or want to know the truth about the farmed animal industry and your food, this book is a must read. I highly recommend it for everyone. It's an important book, and I am so happy that she is writing this series of books. I envision the series as being an incredible learning tool, from a true vegan educator. I found myself highlighting so many passages, and practically the entire seventh chapter! Another engaging book, by this very intelligent, well-spoken, excellent writer. It is no wonder why each of her books are among my favorites. On Being Vegan is a thorough education on veganism. It read quickly and left me greatly anticipating the next book in the series. I can't wait to read, and have them all, and give them as gifts. You'll be happy you read this book!
