Veganism has become increasingly popular in recent years, but still, not too many resources exist for vegans or people thinking of going vegan. There isn't exactly a steady supply of "how to eat vegan" information out there. I mean, is there even one major vegan cooking show on the Food Network? How often do you see vegan recipes at restaurants? Normalization works overtime for carnism, because many people reject veganism on the grounds that they think eating animal products is normal and/or that something being tasty negates its harmful impacts on animals, health, marginalized folks, and our one, and only, planet. There's a variety of valid reasons why someone may want to go vegan, and regardless of the reason, they will certainly need resources to help them navigate the transition.
Luckily, there are many books (and cookbooks!) out there that can help first-time vegans. Even better, you don't have to read a dense historical or sociological book to understand veganism. Fiction and cookbooks work well too! It's all about reading what will help you the most. Below are a few books that might be helpful if you're curious about veganism:
