I would recommend a vegan shopper book - your local vegan society will no doubt produce one. I find it very useful as a reference to supermarket prouducts etc that really are vegan (it's amazing what crap companies will chuck in their products). Especially those pesky E numbers and other assorted additives that are strings of numbers/chemical names/etc
Mmmmmm, ground up insects.

One of my personal favs was Being Vegan by Joanne Stepaniak

Thanks for all the advice! :D

I am now the proud owner of Becoming Vegan :lol: I´ve read parts of it, not all yet, and it definately seems very useful!

I also bought a book called "The China Study". I love that one. :D Lots of useful info, and a little easier to read than Becoming Vegan (English is my second language).

The Thrive Diet by Brendan Brazier. New, and from what I have seen the BEST book regarding OPTIMAL vegan nutrition and how it relates to your performance. It has great explanations on what and why, and has over 100 awesome recipes. Most vegan books and cookbooks pale in comparison to his level of understanding and knowledge on how to PROPERLY execute this diet.

The Farm Cookbook

The New Farm Vegetarian Cookbook is a reissue of the classic, first published in '75! It's vegan, though some recipes are sugary. It has a lot of soy based recipes and they're all as simple as can be. I love the folks from the Farm, true American heroes!
