Are you interested in veganism and don't know where to start? Are you a new vegan and struggling? Or are you maybe just interested in learning more about the lifestyle?
The Practical Vegan is a step-by-step guide to veganism - it will answer the most common questions you might ask yourself when it comes to veganism: What is and isn't considered vegan? Where will I get my protein? Will I become deficient? Is veganism healthy? What do vegans eat? Why is it so difficult to give up cheese? How will I handle social situations? Will I lose or gain weight? and many more.
The Practical Vegan is the guide I wish I'd had when I went vegan and I hope that it will help you!

Some reviews of "The Practical Vegan":
"You can tell she poured her heart out into this book. It's jam-packed with resources for vegans and especially those thinking of making a transition. Just to name a few topics, learn more about: veganism, how to plan your transition, the importance of a vitamin B12 supplement, where to eat, how to deal with social situations, the varying types of veganism, where to buy vegan candles, and get prime sources to best educate yourself (lists of best books about veganism, documentaries, cookbooks, blogs, fashion, cleaning products, the list goes on...). I wish I had this as a resource upon transitioning to veganism. Every page is filled with valuable information. I love it and recommend it to all."

"All I can say is WOW - This has to be one of the best resources for new vegans that I've seen. I wish this was around 5 years afo when I made the switch. Brusselsvegan has clearly put her heart and soul into all 125 pages!!! I just spent the past hour looking through it and I can say that it's definitely worth the 10$ and more! This is especially a great resource & guide on how to eat vegan on a budget and when you're traveling, and it outlines the different types of vegans out there. Fun to read!!! Kim has highlighted the jouney that most of us vegans share and it's no different than anything else in life. We all have to start somewhere, right! Usually that somewhere is a rock bottom or eye opening moment. I will be sharing & recommending this guide to all of my friends, vegan or not because we could all benefit from eating healthier!"
