The book starts with a fun quiz, designed to engage the reader by helping her identify where she falls on the Veggie Spectrum (ranging from veg-curious all the way to vegan). It goes on to cover important topics like uncovering myths and realities about going veg, nutrition basics focused on top teen motivators like looking good, having loads of energy, and doing great in school (yes, eating the right foods can help with all of those things!), eating out, finding a veg-friendly college, dealing with doubtful parents, grandparents, and other adults, and more. The book also includes 40 meat-free recipes that the whole family will love. Full of useful information, helpful tips, delish recipes, and more, this book will help every reader be cool, confident, and definitely not a carnivore.

Review:

With a friendly tone and a ton of nutritional information, this guide will be easy for teenagers to digest. Warren s explanations of the various ways to go veg is neither preachy nor threatening. In fact, she encourages readers who are considering changing their diet to begin by participating in Meatless Mondays. Chapters include information on nutrients that are crucial to a healthy diet and what foods they can be found in for all types of diets (vegan, lacto-ovo, pescetarian). The book also includes types of restaurants with vegetarian-friendly options and an explanation of how to use the choosemyplate.gov resource to practice planning a healthy meal when cooking at home. As in most cookbooks, some of the recipes call for obscure ingredients. The best parts of this title include the author s philosophy that every person has the right to eat according to her own personal values, a section debunking myths about going vegetarian, and what a young adult should say to her parents if they are questioning her dietary choices. Unfortunately, this great resource will not be picked up by teenage boys simply because of the title. --Lindsay Klemas, JM Rapport School for Career Development, Bronx, NY
