Veggiesouls – Free Vegan Cookbook

Veganism is a way of living that seeks to exclude, as far as possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing and any other purpose (Vegan Society of the UK, 1944).

Properly planned vegan diets] are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases…. are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes (American Dietetic Association, 2009)

For many people, the main reason, preventing people to become vegans, is related to the core belief that the vegan food, while maybe healthy, is not fulfilling and is not tasty.

Happiness and food are really highly connected, from the pleasure of cooking and eating to the changes in brain chemistry that food can bring about. Eating is one of the great sensual pleasures in life, and food effects the pleasure and reward centers in our brains in the same way drugs do and this can lead to people experiencing the same problems with food as they do with drugs.

People who love to eat are always the best people (Julia Child)

There is no sincerer love than the love of food (George Bernard Shaw)

Can we make sure that the vegan food will bring us the same, if not higher, emotional and physical satisfaction? Can we make the vegan food at least as delicious as non-vegan? That depends on the cook. And the free vegan cookbook, offered by Veggiesouls might be your assistant in becoming a pro – for you, for your family, for your friends.

How much time does it take you to express an idea in well written English?

Conveying ideas with words is much harder if you have to write it in a foreign language. Why? Just because…

ü  Automatic translation and correction software are just not good enough
ü  Human translation and proofreading are both time consuming and expensive
ü  Browsing several websites, forums and blogs is annoying
ü  You can still bother your English friend for help, but even your best friend’s patience has a limit
