Finally a Vegan: My Journey to Veganuary and Beyond by Stephanie Jane Book

Ideal for vegan-curious readers, Finally a Vegan is an insightful memoir inspired by one life-changing month.

Synopsis - 

Sephanie took part in Veganuary, the month-long global challenge to try veganism, for January 2019. In Finally a Vegan she describes how her changing attitudes to animal welfare and exploitation led her from staunch omnivore to vegetarianism in the preceding years. She recalls her excitement at taking part in the challenge itself and shares her daily food diary, failures as well as triumphs.

Drawing on her post-Veganuary experiences, Stephanie then responds to the common questions But isn't it expensive? But surely it isn't healthy? and But what about my boots? before honestly asking herself How vegan do I want to be?

Review - 

Finally a Vegan is a quick read of just over 100 pages filled with words written from the heart and more.  The author simply offers her journey to becoming a Vegan and the joy it has brought her.  Already on the path in this direction, it was participating in her first Veganuary that helped her make the final leap. Only a part of the book is devoted to her story. The rest of the pages are filled with recipes she uses often and then one chapter is devoted to book reviews of her favorite reads on related subjects. 

As far as her story, she shares the struggles of what to do with her leather boots, the difficulty of eating out and the surprising economic benefits of eating both Vegan and Organic. I do have to add a note here. A lot of that cost savings came from cooking literally everything from scratch. If time is an issue for you, then purchasing pre-made products will most likely raise your food costs.

Who was this book written for?  It will appeal to those who are Vegan curious, those interested in participating in Veganuary, and/or those who are feeling led to embrace the Vegan lifestyle fully.  It is one woman's experience shared in a conversational way, so an easy to understand starting point. What is does not contain is the dietary recommendations that are important to making sure you get all the needed nutrients.

Reader, wanderer, vegan.

Stephanie Jane has been an avid reader for as long as she can remember. She loves discovering new authors from all around the world and is happiest when engrossed in a compelling novel with tea and cake to hand.

Raised in Sussex, England, Stephanie developed a wanderlust in her late twenties. She spends her time exploring the UK and Western Europe with her partner, setting out on foot or bicycle from their almost-vintage motorhome, and firmly believes everywhere has something worth seeing if we slow down enough to appreciate its smallest details.

Stephanie has been vegan since 2019 and strives to incorporate zero waste ideals into her life. She enjoys browsing vintage clothing shops and would collect antique kitchenware if she ever again lives in a house with enough space.
