Here's the Blurb:

What Do Vegans Eat? is a scrapbook-style book written by Leigh-Chantelle from Viva la Vegan! focused on putting the fun into vegan health education, dispelling the myth that vegans aren’t healthy and eat boring and bland food.

Leigh-Chantelle, an accredited Naturopath, Nutritionist and Western herbalist, created this visually appealing look at the many delicious food options vegans have today and delivers it in her unique, charming, no-fuss style.

Food photographs from Leigh-Chantelle’s nutritious and cruelty-free recipes found on her website vivalavegan.net are combined with her inspiring and easy to comprehend overview of the essentials needed to have a healthy vegan diet and lifestyle.

vegan [ˈviːgən]
a person who refrains from using any animal product whatever for food, clothing, or any other purpose

What Do Vegans Eat? covers the following topics:
  • What’s involved in adopting a vegan lifestyle
  • Why does someone become a vegan?
  • Basic food staples of a vegan diet
  • Examples of vegan foods for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and dessert
  • Basic examples of plant sources of vitamins, minerals and nutrients
  • Introduction to quinoa (pronounced keen-wa) and how to cook

What Do Vegans Eat? started as a scrapbook-style presentation for a Brisbane vegan group,” says Leigh-Chantelle. “I wanted my presentation to be fun and visually appealing, yet still have the important educational aspects of a vegan health talk. I combined my love for fun, easy to comprehend education, with food and animal photographs and myself posing to create what I hope is an inspiring look at how easy being a vegan is nowadays.“

While Leigh-Chantelle focuses mostly on the food aspects of veganism in What Do Vegans Eat?, she points out that veganism is not just a diet. “Being vegan is a lifestyle and a set of ethical values that myself and many others choose to embrace” she says. “I hope that I inspire others by leading by example to show how easy it is to live in line with your ethics and values.” She encourages all vegans and potential vegans to educate themselves to the other benefits of the vegan lifestyle including: Animal rights and Welfare, Environment and Sustainability, Ethical and moral issues, Health, Spiritual and/or Religious beliefs, Weight loss or control.
