Part-Time Vegan

Over the past seven or so years, two of my daughters have been vegetarians.  My youngest, a senior in High School is still living at home, so over the years my wife and I have been part time vegetarians.  When I saw Cherise Grifoni’s new book The Part-Time Vegan, I was intrigued.

What I appreciated about the book, was her no guilt approach to being a Vegan.  Too often, people who adopt that lifestyle want to convert everybody else that they become like worst evangelical Christians or Jehovah Witness.  She is not at all.  She lays out why she adopted this part-time lifestyle and why it could be beneficial to the rest of us – without the guilt.

I have only tried a couple of the recipes and the were very good.  I am sure I will continue to eat my way through the book.  My biggest complaint is that she can be, well to lack a better word, silly.  Otherwise, it is a pretty solid recipe book.
