I was skeptical at first because of the title of this book and some of the language can get annoying. Like they are trying too hard to be edgy. This b..Show More »ook reminded me a little of In Defense of Food but I have to say that after reading it I want to be more of a vegetarian and think twice when I eat beef. They are a bit graphic when it comes to the treatment of animals but it did influence me to want to eat less animal products. I also liked how they teach you other ways to get all of the vitamins you need and to be very healthy.
Overall a good book but I didn't learn so much about pregnancy yet eating healthy food does relate.
Clementine Cooper is a committed vegan chef who was born and raised on her parents organic farm. She's had great experiences with different vegan res..Show More »taurants until she got sabotaged by a jealous co-worker who snuck the dreaded " butter" into Clem's dish for a food critic. Immediately fired and blackballed from other restaurants, Clem starters her own vegan cooking classes--Skinny Bitch Cooking School.
Clem's plans to own her own vegan restaurant across the street from her apartment, but she wakes up one morning with a huge steer head right outside her window. Millionaire restauranteur, Zach is opening a steakhouse in her space--ugh!!! But Zach is cute, smart and available. So the conflicts and possible romances start.
I found this book surprisingly cute and fun. The vegan concoctions made my mouth water. The characters were as yummy as the food descriptions. My only complaint was the excessive use of swear words which didn't feel all that necessary to the story, but also did not ruin the story for me, thankfully. I listened to this on audio and found the narrator added a great deal to the joy of this book for me. So, I'll overlook the offending words and will definitely read more---but taking off a star because of this.
