Though I have listened to all of Colleens Vegetarian Food for Thought Podcasts, I bought "The 30-Day Vegan Challenge" as a handy reference book.

Just like the subtitle "The ultimate guide to eating cleaner, getting leaner, and living compassionately" implies it is much more than an advice on how to transition into a vegan diet. From the health benefits, hands-on on getting started on grocery shopping and cooking, debunking prevailing myths about vegans, to practical tips on how to talk to non-vegans, eating out, traveling and attending other social events where vegans are challenged. Beyond the dietary change she talks about how to lead a compassionate life that respects all life on earth and living in alignment with ones values. The book does not gloss over the still widely ignorant perception of vegans but certainly shows feasible ways to deal with aggressive comments and overcome many social barriers.

At the end of the 30-day challenge you definitely feel there is so much you can do as an individual and "Don't do nothing because you can't do everything" (quote from Colleen). Being vegan is about the intention to cause as little harm as possible and not about perfectionism. If you are perceived as a joyful vegan you are probably planting more seeds in others than you think.

I can only highly recommend this "vegan hand book" to everybody, vegans and non-vegans, to newbies who just started their exciting journey into veganism, people who are thinking of becoming vegan and those who never even thought about what they eat and where it comes from. It serves as a compact and yet comprehensive resource and guideline to everything you need to know about veganism and refers to more detailed studies and websites for the interested reader.

I love the book and its style and hope that there will be soon a German translation in order to help my family better understand my decision and the rationale behind it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I've never used this hackneyed phrase before, but this book is worth its weight in gold. More than gold, actually. 25. August 2011
Von Katrina - Veröffentlicht auf
If you asked me 6 months ago if I'd ever go vegan, I'd have told you that you were off your rocker. Give up meat? Maybe. Give up butter, eggs, cheese, and cream? Nope. No way.

Long story short, five months ago I watched a video showing what animals went through in the meat, dairy, and egg industries. My world changed instantly and I knew I'd never touch another animal product again. So I was left to fumble about a bit on my own and gradually educate myself on how to do this healthfully and sanely, all while hearing dire warnings from well-meaning family and friends. Luckily, I discovered this author's podcast pretty early on in the process (Vegetarian Food for Thought at, so that helped me enormously. (She has, however, ruined other podcasts for me, as hers are so good.) I have never been happier. That sounds trite, but I could not put it any simpler. I am a very happy person now. (And much much healthier!) But I really wished I had had this book five months ago. How lucky are you, soon-to-be-reader?

It is amazing on many counts, but I'll narrow it to four:

1) The chapters in this book hit all the points a person in transition would ask or be asked. All the nutritional aspects are covered. Types of products are covered. Tips on making cooking easier, quicker, and more enjoyable are covered. But just as important, the social aspects are covered. In fact, the advice about social situations may be one of the ways this book is most helpful. It's hard to put into words, but she has a way of explaining things that makes you really understand where your concerned loved ones are coming from. Her words can help you toe the fine line between speaking your truth and being compassionate to all people in a very non-kumbayah-way; no drumming circles or tie-dye necessary. :) I've benefited from following her advice -- my family and friends have relaxed and are even trying my (her) recipes. Which is a good segue to point number 2.

2) The recipes are incredible. My husband, a former big animal-meat-eater is addicted to the Better-than-Tuna salad. And they're very do-able. The ingredients can be found in any supermarket. I've never had to scurry to find that elusive (and expensive) ingredient that I'll never use again. (We've all been there, right?)

3) The whole tone is very non-judgmental. You never feel bullied or guilted into making these changes. I got quite excited, in fact, to change. Moreover, I know that I (one little person on this vast planet) am making a remarkable difference in the world. I see it every day.

4) It's extremely organized, gorgeous, and easy to use. No fluff here. This book is such a bargain for what you are getting. I actually feel a little guilty -- like I should have paid much more.

So that's it in a nutshell. If you aren't sure if going vegan is for you, look at it this way: It's just 30 days. And you're paying the same price you'd pay for one month at a really cheap gym.

Go for it. You will be amazed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely phenomenal! Colleen cements her place as a leading vegan voice. 24. August 2011
Von Ryan Thibodaux - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I've been a vegan for 8 years, and for the last 7.9 or so of those years, I've been an unabashed and exuberant vegan advocate.

The problem is I've always had difficulty identifying that "one book" I would want to give to someone who, for one reason or another, has become interested in veganism and a compassionate lifestyle. For the spiritual, I might recommend Will Tuttle's "The World Peace Diet". For animal lovers, perhaps Gail Eisnitz's unflinching "Slaughterhouse" is the way to go. For someone health-focused, I might recommend something by Barnard or Esselstyn or McDougall. If I didn't know the veg-curious person that well... well, you can't go too wrong with something by John Robbins, right?

But no more. There is a single book that I can recommend anyone, and that book is "The 30-Day Vegan Challenge".

What a beautiful and astonishing book this is. I was lucky enough to get a copy two days before the rest of the world at book's release party in San Francisco, and I devoured it in two days. It's all here: the health arguments, the environmental arguments, and, of course, the arguments on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. Oh, and there are the recipes. The recipes are a "greatest hits" collection from Colleen's previous (awesome) cookbooks, and they're fantastic.

But delicious "vegan food" is easy. The hard work is in the arguing, and in the convincing, and in the hand holding, and in the encouraging of those who are just beginning their more compassionate path - the path upon which they align their values with their actions. And that is where this book excels. Colleen answers every objection, every question, and every excuse that any vegan has ever heard, and she does it swiftly and conclusively. It's a wonder to witness. If you're vegan, play a little game and count the number of times when you say to yourself, "Wow. She nailed that."

More importantly, if you're not vegan (yet), play a little game and count the number of times when you say to yourself, "Wow. She nailed that."

Are you vegan? Then get your hands on this book, and join me in celebrating that everything we've ever wanted to have in one place is now available to us in one place. What a feeling!

Are you not vegan, but curious why nearly any vegan you ever encounter always says something like, "choosing this lifestyle is the best decision I've ever made"? Pick up a copy of this book. Take the 30-day challenge! You might not believe me now, but there's a decent chance you'll be one of us - one of the many who Colleen calls "joyful vegans" - by the time you get to the epilogue. I'd bet on it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing book! Get yourself a copy! 23. August 2011
Von Many Jens - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm a huge fan of Colleen's cookbooks and absolutely love her wonderful, informative podcasts. She does amazing work and is a fabulous, joyful spokesperson for a vegan lifestyle! I'm so pleased that's she's written a "how-to" guide to going vegan!

This book is aimed at those interested in trying out a vegan diet or those ready to transition to veganism, but is a worthy addition to any vegan library. Each chapter tackles new issues, ranging from stocking your healthful vegan pantry to menu planning to handling social issues. Each step of the way, Colleen packs in nutrition and health information, as well as ethical considerations. There are more than 100 vegan recipes, so you don't even need to buy a cookbook to take the challenge! Her recipes are easy to follow and execute; they don't have huge, long lists of ingredients with multiple steps. In other words, even if you haven't made a lot of vegan dishes in the past, you'll be able to make some delicious meals! I can't wait for more people to eat meatless and now you've got a guide to help you get there!

I also want to add that it's a well put together and thought out book with beautiful photos. The author does a great job of answering questions and addressing concerns in making a transition to a vegan diet. I'm a 30 year vegetarian turned vegan about a decade ago and even though most of the information wasn't new to me, I still really enjoyed this book. If you are just beginning your transition, know that this book will be a valuable tool.

If you are even thinking of moving to a more compassionate diet, run to your nearest bookstore or order from Amazon. This is the book you need to hold your hand on your journey to vegan diet and lifestyle. Even if you aren't sure you can do it or aren't ready to be fully vegan, this book will help you to incorporate more animal-free meals into your diet. Highly recommended!

When someone wants to know more about a plant-based diet, it's really not too hard these days to find information. Recipes, articles about the health benefits, and general information about nutrition can be relatively easy to find. But, it is hard to find ONE comprehensive resource including ALL of these and SO MUCH MORE. Colleen covers every aspect of the issues surrounding a plant-based diet. If you have a question about nutrients, baking, social situations, or just practicing new habits, Colleen has the answer in the 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
I have been vegan for 13 years. I have seen many resources for new vegans and NONE of them compare to this book. It addresses EVERY single aspect of being vegan. You will find everything you need to experience positive change in your life in the 30-Day Vegan Challenge. The recipes included are tried and true - I have tried almost all of them! Colleen's advice about forming new habits, making time for being healthy, and social issues related to being vegan are treasures that you will find easy to apply and will make a significant difference in your experience as you try out a plant-based diet.
If you want to try out a vegan diet, you will find the 30-Day Vegan Challenge a rich resource with immensely valuable information that will help you make positive change in your life.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not What I Expected 23. Oktober 2011
Von theresa - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I love Colleen Patrick-Goudreau; she's one of my favorite vegan chefs! But this book was not what I expected for several reasons:

1) I expected that this was primarily a cookbook. Now that I'm looking closely at how it's advertised, I see it doesn't actually claim to be a cookbook. But in case anyone else also assumed it was: it's not a cookbook; it's a resource book with occasional recipes. The recipes appear in small groupings at the end of most chapters (days). This structure makes it very difficult to find the recipes or quickly search through them.

2) I expected a 30-day challenge. There are 30 "days" in the book, but no real challenge. Each day focuses on a vegan health issue, tip, or interesting fact. These are probably really interesting to most readers (some parts were even interesting to me), but it's not what I had in mind. I wanted to be told what to eat each day, laid out with cute check lists, and a weekly shopping list; maybe even an additional challenge of something that could be completed in a tangible way. I guess the challenge is to eat vegan for 30-days. If like me, you've been vegan for some time, there is no challenge.

3) I expected specific meal plans per day for 30 days including nutritional information and optional snacks. I mentioned this already, I know, but it was a big disappointment not to have them!!! To be fair, there are weekly menu ideas in the back divided by breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but they are not specific or sufficient. On a 30 day challenge, I want to prepare my own vegan food, not buy frozen pizzas or make generic salads, sandwiches, and stir-frys. Some of the meal ideas are great, but most are incomplete or nothing special. She does not include nutritional information with each recipe, nor does she do the work of pairing meals together.

4) I expected new recipes. After recognizing several recipes from her other cookbooks, I soon realized that it's an intentional collection of her "best" recipes, not new Colleen Patrick-Goudreau. Bummer! (Unless you don't want to buy her other cookbooks and only desire the selected favorites...)

5) I expected more pictures. There are some pictures and they are really good ones; it's not an ugly book. But I frequently cook from Colleen's Color Me Vegan (highly recommended!) and the pictures in that one are so gorgeous that I expected the same sort of very frequent, mouth-watering imagery!

I realize now that I was not the primary market of this book: I've been vegan over a decade, am very athletic with more knowledge of health and nutrition than most, and regularly spend a few hours cooking gourmet meals per day (I'm a stay-at-home mom). I was looking for a time-oriented (month long or so) cooking challenge to do as a fun adventure to spice up my normal routine. I especially love the feeling of completing things and checking off lists, and was hoping it was that sort of challenge. This book is not meant for that sort of thing. It's one of the only "cookbooks" I regret purchasing.

This would be great for a new vegan, a soon-to-be-vegan, a dabbling vegetarian, or anyone wanting more information on vegan health. I think it would even be great as a gift. It definitely has an audience but is misleading as a "30-Day Vegan Challenge". It should be named (as per it's subtitle): The Ultimate Guide to Eating Cleaner, Getting Leaner, and Living Compassionately. That's exactly what it is: a vegan guide.
