I’m counting the days with lots of excitement (and sometimes a little apprehension) to June 18, 2013—the release date for my new book Vegan for Her. I’ve been working on it for more than a year with my friend and co-author JL Fields, and it’s hard to believe that in a few short months, this labor of love will be a real live book!
Right now, JL and I are in the process of creating a community around the ideas and concepts that we talk about in our book. We’ll be launching veganforher.com at the end of May, a site dedicated to sharing information and encouraging dialog among vegan and vegan-curious women. We’re going to talk about everything under the sun—food, nutrition, clothes, body image issues, animals, and all the challenges and joys of being vegan—whether you are already vegan or just kind of thinking about it.
You can sign up for our email list right now so that you’ll receive the very first post when we launch the site in May. Please also follow Vegan for Her on twitter, facebook, and pinterest.
And a note to my male readers: please don’t go away! This blog is still for everyone. And—just a little teaser for now—I’m working on a book for next year that will be of interest to at least some of you.
Ginny, this is great! I love Vegan For Life (recently started following the principles of the book) and I can’t wait to see what you have in store for vegan women with your new book. Looking forward to it!
I guess the book will answer most important questions about foods and vegan diets. Being a vegan sounds healthy but I was thinking that there are a lot of things to sacrifice like eating meat, taking dairy products, etc. Perhaps this book will enlighten me about a lot of things.Thanks for the practical and realistic guide to make sure that plant-based diet will be healthy as it can be.
while being vegan does mean giving up meat and dairy, not only to you gain a new appreciation for fruits and vegetables, you expand you world and your palate trying new things! i find that i don’t even miss the meat and i’ve been meat free for 2 years now. i must admit though that dairy is harder to give up. it really is an addiction and i went through a mood swing filled withdrawal period. this withdrawal period would happen every time i cheated too. it was and still is quite a struggle and i think it always will be.
when i am dairy free i feel amazing and awesome, but if i sneak/cheat a little or there is hidden dairy in something i notice i feel sluggish for days and have a stuffy nose for about a week.
This book is exciting! I can’t wait for it to come out. I’ve been vegan for only 7 weeks, but I’m so much happier AND I’ve lost 20 pounds. However, I’m still a newbie, so this book will be a great resource. Thank you for writing it.
