Editorial Reviews:

Before you arrived at the restaurant, your friends all ordered a large pizza—half pepperoni, half sausage. As the solo vegetarian, you discreetly add a small cheese pizza to the order—with peppers and onions, of course! Welcome to the world of a vegetarian in an otherwise carnivorous population.

Vegetarianism has found itself growing in popularity, whether for religious, health, moral, or many other reasons.  Still, it’s not uncommon to be the minority in a large group of people based on your vegetarian lifestyle. Going to a restaurant, a dinner party, traveling, and holidays (think: tofurkey!) can often be a challenge for many vegetarians. Being Vegetarian For Dummies helps you choose the vegetarian lifestyle that is right for you, whether you’re a vegetarian in the making or if you’ve been a vegetarian for years . With the helpful advice this guide provides, you’ll:

  • Discover the vegetarian food guide pyramid
  • Figure out true benefits of vegetarianism
  • Find out how to reinvent your favorite recipes
  • Learn how to arrange for vegetarian foods at wedding, banquets, and other social events

Best of all, Being Vegetarian For Dummies tackles head-on some of the most common questions that vegetarians often face when someone learns of their dietary lifestyle. Aren’t you lacking a ton of vitamins and minerals? What exactly do you eat? Don’t you get tired of salads? Isn’t it dangerous to be vegetarian when you’re pregnant? The list goes on—mainly because most people don’t have a clear understanding of what being a vegetarian really entails. Being Vegetarian For Dummies offers you all you need to know to make smart, healthy choices, and also covers:

  • Deciding whether to switch to vegetarianism overnight or gradually
  • Finding vegetarian sources of protein
  • Ensuring that you have a healthy vegetarian pregnancy
  • Vegetarian diets for children and teens
  • Understanding what’s really in your food and other products
Being Vegetarian For Dummies definitely promises that you won’t be eating grilled cheese sandwiches for the rest of your life.

Summary: Good for basic information
Comment: I think the book is good as a stepping stone resource. Personally I prefer her book Vegetarian Cooking for Dummies. It has a bunch of really delicious recipes. I've always hated beans but the recipes she's included with beans are delicious. The recipes she's included are pretty much fool proof and I've liked almost all of the ones in the book. This being vegetarian for dummies repeats a lot information in the other book and expands on a couple of other topics. I found the other book more helpful in a practical sense. Check it out.

Summary: Still a dummy
Comment: It is freggin hard to be a vegetarian in a meat eating world that is for sure. It is a good read, but you have got to be motivated to go meatless. I have not gotten there yet.

Summary: Wonderful resource for those interested in a vegetarian lifestyle
Comment: I'm extremely impressed with the amount of information that his book contains and it's clear cut, and interesting layout. Being Vegetarian for Dummies, is chocked full of nutritional information, as well as common myths. What I found most helpful about this book was its real world approach to being a vegetarian. I've read many books on the topic, but this book really seems to take into account the fact that as a vegetarian you will have to interact outside the confines of your own kitchen. It gives suggestions on how to support your vegetarian lifestyle while on vacation, in office settings, while over someone else's home. The book gives multiple options for those who follow either an ovo-lacto or vegan lifestyle. I highly recommend this book for those interested in learning more about being a vegetarian, but I do suggest you look at multiple sources, there are other books that focus more on the importance of individual vitamins and minerals, and their optimal food source.

Summary: Good info but too preachy
Comment: This book follows in the same tradition as the other Dummies books. The book covers basics about being vegetarian and what you need to watch out for if becoming purely vegan. However, the author preaches to the reader, in essence saying "what has taken you so long, dummy, to become a vegetarian? Don't you know it's the right thing to do?" I have also read another book called "Becoming Vegetarian" (original version; the authors now have a newer version available) by Vesanto Melina, et al. I thought the information was presented in a very organized fashion without any preaching or finger-pointing. I would highly recommend the Melina book over Dummies.
