Never Too Late to Go Vegan: The Book!

Never Too Late to Go Vegan: The Book!

Back in June of last year, I shared news about my upcoming book Never Too Late to Go Vegan. I’m happy and excited to announce that the book is finished and shipping from booksellers in the next few weeks.

My co-authors are Patti Breitman, a former literary agent and current vegan activist and educator, and Carol Adams, who you probably know from her groundbreaking work The Sexual Politics of Meat. Patti and Carol invited me to write this book with them and I’m so grateful to them for bringing me on to the project. And, I’m really happy with how our book has turned out.

Amazon has been slow to get the “look inside” feature activated for this book, so I want to share some the table of contents and some text from the preface.

Here is the TOC:

Preface: With Age, Wisdom; with Wisdom, Vegan

Part One: It Really Is Never Too Late to Go Vegan

Chapter 1: Why Now? Positive Aging the Vegan Way

Chapter 2: How to Go Vegan: Your Next Major Life Decision

Chapter 3: Why Vegan? Veganism Is a Simple and Effective Response to a Series of Complex Contemporary Issues

Part Two: Nutrition for the 50+ Body

Chapter 4: Why and How We Age

Chapter 5: A Healthy Diet for 50+ Vegans

Chapter 6: Vegan Diets for Lifelong Health

Part Three: Eats Well with Others

Chapter 7: Relationship Dynamics: Family and Friends and Veganism

Chapter 8: Vegan in the World

Chapter 9: Veganism and Caregiving

Part Four: Let’s Eat!

Chapter 10: How to Veganize

Chapter 11: Recipes for Everyday and Festive Eating


From the preface:

“We wrote this book to reassure you, bust your notions of what aging looks like, show you how to prepare scrumptious food, and help you rediscover one of the most precious, life-affirming parts of yourself.

 We hope it will be a successful introduction to a lifestyle that brings you renewed energy, better health, a new sense of purpose, and a new experience of power to affect change. That is what it has done for us and for countless others who choose a vegan way of life.


 According to popular folklore, wisdom comes with age. What could be wiser than choosing compassion, vibrant health, and a vast, delicious cuisine to be the guiding principles in our life?”

Never Too Late to Go Vegan is available for pre-order from Amazon and Barnes and Noble and I hope you’ll like our brand new facebook page, too! Website is coming soon.

    Thank you. This book is mine. I’ve gone low carb and started eating meat again and feel depressed and sick to my stomach. When will I ever learn? Just want a decent book that will give me needed tools, not ANOTHER vegan book that turns it into religion.

    I pre-ordered a copy and look forward to reading the book. As a 63 year old struggling to stick to a vegan diet, I can use all the help and inspiration I can get! Thanks to all three authors for writing Never Too Late to Go Vegan.
