Veganism typically is a dietary choice that some people will choose due to health reasons or moral beliefs. It has now become an ideal choice for economic reasons. Thanks to the weak economy, more people are opting for plant based diets because they are spending less by omitting costly cuts of meat, poultry and dairy products. For others that don’t have access to their own organically grown produce or a local organic farmer’s market, it can still be a bit of a challenge. If you have ever fallen off the vegan bandwagon trying to make the switch to a plant based diet because you didn’t know what foods to eat or couldn’t find vegan foods, help is on the way! Author, Kim Barnouin who is loved and adored for her series of NY Times best-selling “Skinny Bitch” books, has now published her latest book, Skinny Bitch Book of Vegan Swaps! Kim shares her favorite snacks and explain the swaps that every savvy vegan should make. Even veteran healthy eaters may be stumped by questions she answers with ease: Which is more nutritious, kale or chard? How about quinoa or brown rice? Readers will discover a treasure trove of information, including how to decode a label, the best places to shop for vegan fare, and a rundown of restaurants, cafes and bakeries featuring vegan selections.
