In The Happy Vegan, Simmons shares how once he started practicing yoga and meditation, he became more conscious of his choices, particularly the choices he made regarding his diet. Simmons first adopted a vegetarian and then vegan diet and almost immediately began to experience the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of eating green and clean.

This book gave me life! I was already thinking vegan. I saw Russell Simmons on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. He talked about being vegan and meditation. So....I bought the book! It was like an investment. I went through it so fast that I was disappointed when it ended. He explained the benefits from all angles. I really liked that everything wasn't just from his perspective...he referenced so many others. My favorite part was when he explained that its okay when we mess up because we're human (just pick back up and keep it moving...he even gave examples). That was huge for me. The book ended with helpful resources for vegans and also with a snippet of info on meditation....it was just enough good listening about meditation to entice me to buy his book Success Through Stillness...
