Summary: Vegan women everywhere are banding together in their efforts to be healthy, cruelty free, and environmentally responsible. This is their handbook. Melisser (known to most as "The Urban Housewife") presents the basics of veganism for the newbies, lots of DIY craft projects, cruelty-free beauty tips, travel advice, recipes, and more. This book is not just for vegan girls-it's also for anyone who's interested in a cruelty-free lifestyle. Discover the best beauty products, fun vacation spots, plus an assortment of recipes including Jackfruit "Carnitas" Tacos, Twice Baked Chipotle Sweet Potatoes, Curried Red Lentil Veggie Burgers, Chipotle Hominy Stew, and Double Chocolate Cookies. Learn how to make recycled cake stands, find a cross-stitch pattern by Stitch'd Ink, and find out about natural beauty and cleaning products. Reading like a Who's Who of vegan women, contributions of recipes and craft projects will be provided by some of the most respected vegan chefs and bloggers in the world (Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Hannah Kaminsky, Celine Steen, Julie Hasson, Kittee Berns, Kelly Peloza, and more). Full of photos and quirky illustrations, this is useful information with a punk rock attitude.
