I am mostly a vegetarian! I don’t cook any meat in my house…ever! I do eat meat though, especially if someone else makes it for me. I choose to not consume a lot of meat, as does my husband, for many reasons. One of those reasons is that we eat mostly organic food and organic, ethically raised meat is very expensive and hard to find! I am currently trying to do a vegan diet in order to lose weight. And when I say vegan, I mean a mostly vegetable, lentil, nut, fruit diet. In general, I don’t eat a lot of dairy, besides cheese and if it is in some breads or baked goods. We drink Almond Milk in my house. I plan on starting a Vegan/Vegetarian Recipe page on my blog dedicated to HEALTHY recipes. (Sidenote: You can be vegan or vegetarian and still eat a ton of unhealthy food! My goal is to post healthy vegan/vegetarian recipes!)
When I saw this book up for review, I jumped on it! I have actually never read a book about being a vegetarian and I thought this looked amusing! Revenge of the Vegetarian is truly a humorous spin on being a vegetarian and how you fit into the world of meat eaters!
Revenge of the Vegetarian: A Humorous Spin on the World of Vegetarianism is written by Jim Tilberry who has been a vegetarian since 1998. The book covers vegetarian topics, such as 10 reasons to become a vegetarian, including the reason that you can show off your vocabulary with words like “vegan”, “tempeh”, and “seitan”. Another part includes types of vegetarians, and gives them all official names. And if you need advice about “coming out” to mom and dad, don’t worry because there is a whole section dedicated to that as well! Also, if you need advice on how to deal with meat eaters, this book is chalk full of helpful tips! There is also a physic section with interviews with famous vegetarians of the past including Gandhi, Socrates, and Ben Franklin! If you are wondering what the world would look like if vegetarians were in charge than this is the book for you. Did I tell you there were drawings and pictures throughout the book to illustrate all these ideas?
I thought this book was humorous and should be read by vegetarians and vegans who have a sense of humor. This book makes fun of everyone, especially meat eaters. This paperback book is a real easy read, only 70 pages, and very enjoyable.
You can buy this book on Amazon for $11.95!
