The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone “(…) shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion.”
Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz. The first vegan cookbook I bought, and I still use it a lot! Full of fun, delicious, easy enough recipes.
Veganomicon by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero. A definite cookbook staple for me. Moskowitz is also the creator of Post Punk Kitchen and wrote many more vegan cookbooks.
Earthlings “is an award-winning documentary film about the suffering of animals for food, fashion, pets, entertainment and medical research.” narrated by Joaquin Phoenix. Warning: Graphic! Not for the faint hearted.
