Betty Goes Vegan

Catherine from VegCharlotte did a fun, helpful review of this cookbook.


Betty Goes Vegan

There’s been so much buzz about Betty Goes Vegan, that I had to sit down for awhile in a nice cozy bookstore coffee shop and page through it for myself.

First thing you should know, this is NOT a “Betty Crocker” cookbook.  I think many vegans were overjoyed when this cookbook came out because it appeared Betty Crocker/General Mills was endorsing the vegan lifestyle.  However, General Mills had nothing to do with this book!  The book started as a blogging project by Dan and Annie Shannon on their blog Meet The Shannons.

Here’s what I liked about Betty Goes Vegan:

It’s a fun read.  The Shannons are very entertaining with a great sense of humor, and each recipe starts off with a small story.  After browsing this book you really will want to “Meet the Shannons.”

It’s very informative, especially for new vegans.  Very helpful information…

    I read the review on your site, too, VegCharlotte, and I agree with Celeste: your reviews are wonderful. Thank you! I like the cover of the book, but I don’t think I’ll be buying it. Fake meat tastes okay, but I feel awful the next day. If I’m going to eat something that ruins my life for a couple of days, I’ll stick to good old sugar!!! (I’m a traditionalist.)

    • Thanks for the lovely comment Deborah! I’m not a fake meat fan either. I think vegans are divided over fake meat. My husband likes it and I have vegan friends who love it. I, on the other hand, am always disappointed when I go to a vegan restaurant and most of their food has fake meat in it. And I love your comment about sugar! In some ways we are so much alike!!! Celeste:)

    Thanks for the review, I don’t use mock meat or vegan cheese either!
