    Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The best-selling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits and loved nothing more than BBQ ribs and vanilla milkshakes. Not until her 30s did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist - someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond. Kathy's shift toward this new life was gradual -she leaned into it -but the impact was profound. Now Kathy shows us how to lean into the veganist life.

    What made the experience of listening to Veganist the most enjoyable?

    Very good information included here and added to my motivation to eat in a healthy manner.


    What other book might you compare Veganist to and why?

    I've read other books such as The China Study and Eat To Live and this was a good way for some of those concepts to be emphasized in my brain. I like that she gives many options for LEANING toward a plant based diet for those who are not yet ready to go "whole bean".


    Have you listened to any of Karen White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    N/S


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Read it in one day.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyed the book. I will probably listen to it again as it is very motivating.
