The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan

Look Good, Feel Good & Do Good in 30 Days

Want to be fabulous? Go vegan!

Maybe you’re interested in it for the food, maybe it’s the animals, or maybe climate change has got you thinking. Whatever your reason, maybe you don’t quite know where to start. After all, doesn’t going vegan mean you have to give up tasty snacks, cool shoes, a sense of humor, and your leather couch? (Nope, nope, no way, well…eventually.) Covering everything from nutrition (you will get enough protein, promise) to dating (vegans have better sex. It’s true) to fitness (you want to lift a car over your head? Sure), Jasmin Singer and the team at VegNews bust all the myths and give you all the facts about a plant-based lifestyle. With 30 easy recipes to get you started, The VegNews Guide to Being a Fabulous Vegan will help you adopt a lifestyle that’s better for you, the animals, and the planet. And what’s more fabulous than that?

Jasmin Singer Writing

My first published piece was a poem entitled “You’re Still a Person,” which was published in a children’s magazine. I was in fourth grade. I’ve gone on to write books, articles, and a whole lot more. Though I’ve moved on from poetry, I am, in fact, still a person.

Always Too Much and Never Enough

One woman’s journey to find herself through juicing, veganism, and love, as she went from feeding her emotions to feeding her soul.

From the extra pounds and unrelenting bullies that left her eating lunch alone in a bathroom stall at school to the low self-esteem that left her both physically and emotionally vulnerable to abuse, Jasmin Singer’s struggle with weight defined her life. Even after Jasmin went vegan, she realized that her compassion for animals didn’t extend to her own body and that her low self-esteem was affecting her health. She needed a change. By committing to monthly juice fasts and a diet of whole, unprocessed foods, Jasmin gained an understanding of her destructive relationship with food and finally realized what it means to be truly full. Told with humble humor and heartbreaking honesty, this is Jasmin’s story of how she went from finding solace in a box of cheese crackers to finding peace within herself.
