My first giveaway, how exciting! At Vida Vegan Con 2011 I was lucky enough to win a copy of Becoming Vegan by Brenda Davis, R.D., & Vesanto Melina, M.S., R.D. I've flipped through it and found that the book is incredibly comprehensive, covering all imaginable aspects of vegan nutrition. Yet, I was really impressed by some chapters on special interests in veganism, such as individuals with eating disorders, those who are overweight or underweight, and vegan athletes.
For someone who would like to learn more about specific nutrition or special populations within veganism or for someone who would like to gift this to a friend who is considering veganism (or that pesky aunt or uncle who keeps asking those timeless, silly, dietary questions...) - I would recommend this book!
All you have to do is leave a comment on this post sharing what it is that you appreciate most about becoming vegan. Please comment by Wednesday, October 19th at 10 pm to be eligible and I will announce the winner soon after! Please include your e-mail address.
Update: If you blog about this giveaway and include a link to your post in a separate comment, you can have an extra opportunity to win!
I also have ideas of compiling ANOTHER giveaway soon for vegan treats made by local vegan chefs and bakers. Stay tuned and good luck!
