HELLO & WELCOME!
From Peggy Brusseau
Over the years, I’ve helped thousands of people and their families make the transition to a vegan, fully plant-based diet - happily and healthily.
And I’d love to help you, as well!
My new book, The Contented Vegan, is a great start. Built on decades of my own experience.
But I want you to know that I’m here to give personal support and advice, too, through my free newsletter - so sign up now! And let's get started!
MORE THAN A COOKBOOK…
THE CONTENTED VEGAN is a complete guide to the emerging vegan lifestyle. Based on two decades experience of raising a vegan family.
And that's just the start. Subscribe to my regular newsletter where the conversation continues!
THE REVIEWS ARE IN!
Warning: the mouth-wateringly delicious meals stylishly presented and gorgeously photographed in this book will not make you feel better. Not immediately. If you’re like me, they will make you ravenously hungry! And keen to hit the kitchen. Fortunately, the very simple instructions will help you quickly solve this problem, even if your cooking skills are as basic as my own. You will then feel better, and the longer you follow this book, the better you will feel.
In her engaging, informative style, Peggy Brusseau explains why. She explores the nutritional benefits of the vegan diet, which is now taking the world by storm. You’ll even learn why it’s also better for your children, and potentially, for your pets. As a veterinarian, I was pleased to see pets included. And as a super busy person, I was also pleased to see the time indications given, to prepare each recipe.
Such a beautiful book and perfect for a brand new start to the year!
The recipes are easy to follow and brought some really nice variety in ingredients into my diet. This would make a great gift, for yourself or for someone looking to make an easy transition to trying out veganism.
Five stars for this book I bought after I watched Sunday Brunch on Channel 4 which included a review of Vegan cookbooks for Veganuary. Rick Stein was full of praise and I can easily see why.
What makes this a stand-out book is the obvious passion from the author for following a vegan diet, without being preachy.
The recipes are well organised and simple to follow, nothing too fancy; just good wholesome recipes using great ingredients. The Baked Bartlett Crumble is wonderful, I’d never have thought of putting nuts as a base, nor serving it with Grilled Oranges with Maple Syrup!
A great addition to my cookbook collection and I’d recommend it for everyone, you certainly don’t need to be vegan or vegetarian to enjoy it.
I have received this book as a gift and found it extremely useful. It contains a lot of important information about a balanced diet and what your body needs. The book also helps to answer some tricky questions like how to explain the change of your diet to your friends or family who might not understand or support your lifestyle choice straight away.
This book encourages you not only to cook in a more healthy way, but also to choose your ingredients wisely. To go for quality and love for your body and health.
I found all I needed for the awesome meals from this book on the farmer's market or green grocers, health food shops like Holland & Barrett, ethnic grocers for spices and unusual dried beans.
