Cheri Reviews The Joyful Vegan by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

The Joyful Vegan: How to Stay Vegan in a World That Wants You to Eat Meat, Dairy, and Eggs by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I was in need of some motivation so browsed the offerings in the “included” area of Audible for health and diet. I tried two other books before this one grabbed me.

I hadn’t heard of the author before but she’s got a popular blog and is the author of several books. I can’t say that I’m motivated enough to seek out more from her but I did enjoy and get a lot out of The Joyful Vegan. Mostly I enjoyed her compassionate approach to other humans. She spends a lot of time discussing how vegans are perceived and how being joyful instead of angry is the way to go. That spoke to me because I struggle in my personal life to not be angry and to be compassionate. Joyful isn’t something I achieve on a regular basis but not angry is within my reach. I’ll work on joyful though.

I definitely recommend this book to vegans and non-vegans alike. Who couldn’t use more joy in their life?
