San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
Veganism has quickly gone from the domain of zealous health nuts to the favorite lifestyle of fashion mavens—thanks in no small part to the smart and fearless Skinny Bitch books. Now coauthor Kim Barnouin is back with the guide that anyone who’s been a part of this phenomenon (with two million copies sold, that’s a lot of people) will want in their collection. The number of people giving veganism a try has been skyrocketing in recent years—even Bill Clinton recently revealed his largely vegan diet. Foodies are well aware of the vegan boom: In the National Restaurant Association’s “What’s Hot in 2011” poll, hundreds of chefs listed vegan entrees as a hot trend. THE SKINNY BITCH BOOK OF VEGAN SWAPS is an easy, user-friendly guide for anyone who wants to try veganism—and in response to this red-hot trend, it will even feature a “Try Me Vegan Weekend” plan.
There’s never been a better time to be vegan. But with more options comes more confusion (such as the emerging issue of vegan junk food), and THE SKINNY BITCH BOOK OF VEGAN SWAPS is finally here to cut through the misleading messages. It presents clear swaps for foods that you may think are healthy, clearly explaining what makes one choice better than another, exposing imposters, and outlining how to easily spot the difference. Barnouin will share her favorite snacks, and explain the swaps that every savvy vegan should make. Even veteran healthy eaters may be stumped by questions she answers with ease: Which is more nutritious, kale or chard? How about quinoa or brown rice? Readers will discover a treasure trove of information, including how to decode a label, the best places to shop for vegan fare, and a rundown of restaurants, cafes and bakeries featuring vegan selections.
Barnouin’s fun, no-nonsense voice and vast expertise sparkle on every page, with helpful lists like:
- Worst Veggie Dishes That You Think are Healthy
- Top Ten Worst Pesticide Ridden Veggies & Fruit
- Top Ten Things to Eat While Stranded in an Airport
And best of all, she knows that the concerns of today’s savvy eaters’ run the gamut from calories to carbon footprints, and takes it all into account. Whether you’re just looking for healthier options or have been a devoted vegan for years, THE SKINNY BITCH OF VEGAN SWAPS is the user-friendly guide you’ve been waiting for.
