About The Book
Finding plant-based recipes? Easy. Dealing with the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan in a non-vegan world? That’s the hard part. The Joyful Vegan is here to help.
Many people choose veganism as a logical and sensible response to their concerns about animals, the environment, and/or their health. But despite their positive intentions and the personal benefits they experience, they’re often met with resistance from friends, family members, and society at large. These external factors can make veganism socially difficult — and emotionally exhausting — to sustain.
This leads to an unfortunate reality: The majority of vegans (and vegetarians) revert to consuming meat, dairy, or eggs — breaching their own values and sabotaging their own goals in the process. Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, known as “The Joyful Vegan,” has guided countless individuals through the process of becoming vegan. Now, in her seventh book, The Joyful Vegan, she shares her insights into why some people stay vegan and others stop.
It’s not because there’s nothing to eat. It’s not because there isn’t enough protein in plants. And it’s not because people lack willpower or moral fortitude. Rather, people stay vegan or not depending on how well they navigate the social, cultural, and emotional aspects of being vegan: constantly being asked to defend their food choices; living with the awareness of animal suffering; feeling the pressure (often self-inflicted) to be perfect; and experiencing guilt, remorse, and anger.
In these pages, Patrick-Goudreau shares her wisdom for managing these challenges and arms readers — both vegan and plant-based — with solutions and strategies for “coming out vegan” to family, friends, and colleagues; cultivating healthy relationships (with vegans and non-vegans); communicating effectively; sharing enthusiasm without proselytizing; finding like-minded community; and experiencing peace of mind as a vegan in a non-vegan world.
By implementing the tools provided in this book, readers will find they can live ethically, eat healthfully, engage socially — and remain a joyful vegan.
