Until now, no book has addressed the unique concerns of those over 50 who are exploring or adopting a vegan diet. Never Too Late to Go Vegan
($15.95) fills that void. It explains the specific health benefits of a
plant-rich vegan diet for those over 50, and how best to embark upon and
maintain this way of eating. And it includes 75 delicious, easy vegan
recipes to meet the changing nutritional needs that come with aging.
The authors bring close to 75 years of vegan life experience to this book-and help readers prepare for and solve the many thorny issues that affect vegans over 50 (and that younger people do not face), including: how to manage the stress on relationships when lifelong patterns are changed; how your vegan lifestyle can affect socializing and retirement choices; how to handle friends and family who may expect to find favorite, familiar foods when visiting; and how to care for aging friends and family who are not vegan.
