Alicia Silvertone, a famous vegan and PETA advocate, has just published a book called The Kind Diet. It outlines the benefits (physically, spiritually, ethically and environmentally) of a plant-based diet; dispels the myths and includes many recipes that look divine. It emphasiszes gradual change with three different levels of 'veganism' for you to choose from and start with. From Amazon: "Flirts learn to dip a toe into the vegan pool, reducing their meat-eating and swapping out a few key foods for plant-based substitutes to see quickly how even small changes can reap big results. Vegans get to experience the life-altering effects of forgoing animal-products entirely, while still enjoying many convenience foods and meat substitutes in addition to the wonderful grains, vegetables and fruits that form the core of that diet. True enlightenment comes with the Superhero program, based on the principles of macrobiotics and built on a foundation of whole grains, vegetables, and other yummy foods that Alicia describes in detail."
