VeganMofo 2010: The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life

Strummer love!

I've been a fan of the Urban Housewife blog for awhile now and was super-excited to finally meet up with Melisser last year, during one of her visits to NYC.  Call me triple-excited when she asked me if I wanted to contribute some illustrations to the book that she was working on! Well here it is, a year or so later, and I have the actual book in my hands and it is just so great.  Packed full of information, yummy recipes, and amazing interviews with cool chicas, it is a unique book in the ever-exploding market of vegan books that have/are coming out.

The Vegan Girl's Guide to Life touches on just about everything,  from the different reasons behind going vegan, nutrition, common questions and misconceptions, traveling, community, and activism.  My favorite part of this book is all the interviews scattered throughout, with some pretty amazing vegan ladies out there.  It was so fun to see familiar faces and interviews with some of my favorite bloggers, like Melanie, Jess, JoJo, and Marika, and favorite business owners, like Kerry, Leanne, and Jeannette.  Yummy recipes are also included with some contributions from Melisser herself, Celine, Terry, Constanze, and Hannah, among others.  Also, some DIY projects that would be perfect for the upcoming holiday gift-giving season!

Purchase VGGTL here or in person at one of her book-signing dates!  I went to the signing this past Saturday at Champs Bakery (mmm, vegan danishes!) and would highly recommend you get your hands on this pretty book soon!
