Plant Based Living

Shirley Jones —

Reflecting the growing popularity of a vegan lifestyle, the Dewey Decimal System now has a unique number for vegan cooking: 641.56362.

If you are interested in reducing your carbon footprint and being kinder to the environment, a reduction in consuming animal products is a positive step. There are many health benefits associated with a plant-based diet and at your library we have books to keep you informed and to help you on your way to plant-based living.

In the Health section you will find nutritional advice and books on how changing your diet can effect your body and your mind.  In the Cooking section there is a huge range of fabulous new vegan recipe books to take home and pore over, plus old favourites such as Vegan with a Vengeance by Isa Chandra Moskowitz which was first published in 2005. Her recipe for scrambled tofu is a staple! There is even a book about plant-based dog food in the Pets section.
