I cannot stress enough how necessary this book is, and find myself referencing it often. Jan 14, Erek rated it really liked it. A great book about healthful eating. Proves a lot of myths wrong about people who are vegetarian. Help me decide to become vegetarian. Would highly recommened it.
All people need to read this book if you plan on eating. Mar 09, Roxanne Snopek rated it it was amazing. Full of information, much that I already knew, but great reinforcement. Helped me open my mind to going from near-vegetarian to completely plant-based. This book is packed full of information. As another reviewer mentioned, vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike could learn a lot from this book about nutrition. I read the entire book, except for chapter 9 "Vegetarian Nutrition in the Growing Years" since none of that information really applies to me yet.
I thought the " This book is packed full of information. I thought the "Vegetarian Diplomacy" chapter was a little silly at times, but nonetheless I suppose it covers some of the issues that vegetarians encounter in daily life, although I think vegetarianism is more and more becoming a widely accepted lifestyle choice. Overall I think this book is full of useful information and tries to be as objective as possible, allowing the reader to make decisions for his or herself.

I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but they seem like good building blocks for a nutritious, diverse vegetarian diet. View 2 comments. Oct 18, Ann Marie rated it it was amazing Shelves: didn-t-finish. I am learning so much. For instance, this morning I had orange juice with my oatmeal because it helps the iron get absorbed better. Then I got some cashews for my mid-morning snack because they are a good source of zinc but you don't eat them with grains because the zinc won't absorb as well. I am excited about these changes because I love oranges and cashews.
A must read for becoming a vegetarian. View 1 comment. This is an excellent book on nutrition for everyone, not just aspiring vegetarians. I agree with another reviewer who said that its a pity that the word vegetarian is in the title, as the information would also be useful for omnivores. I love that it is science based and presented in a logical style. I read a copy from the library, but will be in search of my own personal copy soon. Jul 23, damla yur rated it liked it. Comprehensive book with quality information and some good recipes.
I am more of an omnivore but, I find this super helpful on a regular basis. Aug 12, k. As a brand-spanking-new vegetarian, I wanted an extensive book that detailed the health and food information I should know with my new diet. The New Becoming Vegetarian is just that: an exhaustive text on what vegetarian means and how to be a healthy vegetarian. This book isn't a piece of published propaganda - it's more like a textbook. Personally, I appreciated this fact as that's more of what I was looking for.
The studies in this book are mind blowing but also reputable. The only thing that As a brand-spanking-new vegetarian, I wanted an extensive book that detailed the health and food information I should know with my new diet. The only thing that bothered be about this book was that the author tried to subtly influence the reader into considering veganism. I know, I just said the book was unbiased, and I feel that it is. But the author is upfront about being a Vegan and gives many vegan options and at some points doesn't include dairy in her options.
That's fine, I understand, but I think it was a little inappropriate to put those 'gentle nudges' in so soon because many people reading this book are-the title says 'Vegetarian' hint hint-new Vegetarians, not Vegans. However, my dislike was minimal. This is a really great resource into the diet-science of being vegetarian. Sep 16, Hilary Roberts rated it it was amazing Shelves: health. I read this book months ago but haven't been able to write about it because it makes me too nauseous. I still can't write in as much detail as I would like, but I can say how much I loved this book!!!
I have read lots of books about healthy eating, along with being vegetarian and vegan; and this book is the best! It is very thorough in explaining all aspects of safely reducing animal protein in your diet. It talks about kids of all ages and even pregnant and lactating women. As a bonus, there we I read this book months ago but haven't been able to write about it because it makes me too nauseous. As a bonus, there were some really good recipes in the back. I'm pretty sure this book also had lots of extra references websites, additional reading and places to find information in the back.
I honestly think anyone who would like to eat this way should have this book around as a reference!! Sidenote -- I also think everyone should look into the health benefits of eating this way. Try reading "The China Study". I found this book in a bookshop in Christchurch while on holiday in the New Forest, England.
It was one of those browsing bookshop visits and I thought then that it looked sufficiently interesting to memorise the title and authors. Wind forward several years and I thought of it again. By some miracle, I remembered the details and bought the book. I found it informative, intelligent, thorough and interesting. By far the best case for vegetarianism I have read. I went vegetarian for a couple of yea I found this book in a bookshop in Christchurch while on holiday in the New Forest, England.
I went vegetarian for a couple of years! This book is worth reading if you are considering going vegetarian. For me, vegetarianism didn't last, save that it changed my diet long term even as an occasional meat eater and enjoyer of the odd bacon butty now and then. I've kept the book and still come back to it.
Jul 17, Maggie rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction. Aug 07, Casey marked it as to-read Recommends it for: anyone looking for a healthier diet. I thought that this was a pretty good book, overall. There is a lot of information on getting your vitamins and other necessary nutrients. It really read more like a book about how to eat a healthy diet and letting those facts speak for themselves, rather than a preachy "meat-is-cruel" diatribe except for a couple of spots. There is a lot of good information about what you need to eat healthfully, and where to get it.

Jan 03, Jamie rated it did not like it. It had so much information compacted into a boring never ending stream of words. I wanted to finish it, and I wanted to like it, but I just couldn't. That's very painful for me, I absolutely hate leaving things unfinished. I'm sure it is full of interesting and helpful points but I can't get into it. I didn't retain the information and I found myself daydreaming after a few paragraphs.
I was reading it in small sessions, but I still just can't do it. Well, maybe some day I'll go back and try to It had so much information compacted into a boring never ending stream of words.
