My partner and I thought about dropping out meat and fish a while ago but stalled just in case there was going to be any knock-on effects to our health. This book totally reassured me of the process and that we would be fine. The plant-based alternatives listed really helped to shine light on what we could be having instead. Its early days, but we’ve both felt better since reducing our meat and fish intake following the advice in this book. We’ve also saved a few quid on our weekly shop.
I took on my own plant-based diet in pretty much exactly the same way as Glen did in the story. Have to say I wish I wrote a book too as its going to help a lot of people! I’ve never looked back and have seen many others try but give up because they’re trying too much too soon and have put too much pressure on themselves. Great job.
Reading the story in this book has totally put my mind at ease and made me realise that it's completely possible to live a normal lifestyle without causing an inconvenience to my social life. I definitely think that I’ll be taking on a chilled approach when explaining my dietary requirements to friends, family and when out at restaurants or on holiday.
The book really helps to break down any perceived barriers in society between meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans by speaking to everyone in the same way. As a vegetarian myself, I was impressed by how non-judgemental it came across. In the past, I have always felt pressure from both meat eaters and vegans to be one or the other, but now I’m just going to do my thing having taken on some insights from the book and see where it takes me.
