The Vegetarian Way is the vegetarian bible: an authoritative, comprehensive, single source reference book for the growing number of people who are embracing a vegetarian diet, as well as for the more than 12 million Americans who are already committed vegetarians. Inside you'll find the good news and compelling reasons for being a vegetarian, from proper weight maintenance to prevention of chronic diseases; complete up to the minute scientific findings on vegetarian nutrition, including ways to be sure you're meeting requirements for protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B(subscript 12), and other nutrients; a nine step plan for becoming vegetarian; menus for vegetarians with special needs, such as pregnant women, the elderly, diabetics, and athletes; practical advice for living a vegetarian life, from traveling and eating out to packing school lunches, socializing, and managing a mixed diet household; and more than fifty delicious recipes. The Vegetarian Way will appeal not only to vegetarians, but also to parents who want their families to eat a vegetarian diet, and to countless others who want to cut down on the amount of animal products they eat.

From Library Journal:

Here is a wonderfully succinct yet complete beginner's guide to eliminating animal products from one's diet. The authors?Virginia Messina is a registered dietitian and Mark Messina holds a doctorate in nutrition?employ a sensible, nonideological approach that stresses the health benefits of a vegetarian diet, although they also explore the global environmental and political aspects of eating meat. Their book is packed with information?the history of vegetarianism; the various types of vegetarian diets; and basic nutrition, including up-to-date research that finally addresses concerns on protein, calcium, and Vitamin B-12 requirements. The authors discuss the vegetarian diet for individuals with special needs, such as diabetics, pregnant women, seniors, athletes, and children, as well as tips for buying and cooking the vegetarian way. Their book concludes with an easy-to-follow nine-step program to introduce the vegetarian diet and includes a sampling of recipes and a resource directory that will start the reader off right. A perfect choice for a smaller public library that may need only one title on the subject. Recommended for most collections.?Jeffery Ingram, Newport P.L., Ore.
