Looking to go green—with your food, that is?

Tucsonan Jay Wesley Anderson has written Street Smart Vegan: A Simple Guide to Going Vegan. (148 pages, $9.99 ebook, $12.95 paperback, available at Lovin' Spoonfuls Vegan Restaurant, Amazon and iBookstore)

The book covers vegan dos and don'ts; easy vegan recipes; consuming cruelty-free, cholesterol-free foods; how to lose weight with plant-based whole foods; and minimizing your eco-footprint.

Anderson advises that a person doesn't have to make a vegan transition over night and that it should be guilt-free and fun. His own transition took a few years. He also advises vegans to take a vitamin B-12 supplement.

Anderson says it's good to have a few standby vegan recipes when you are on the go. One example: a sandwich with hummus, spinach, avocado, cucumber, sunflower sprouts and tomato. Sounds tasty.

Author bio (by author):

Vegan author Jay Wesley Anderson helps new vegans go vegan and vegetarians become totally vegan. He writes to eliminate the guesswork, uncertainty, and misinformation about the vegan lifestyle. He holds a degree in Environmental Policy with a minor in Anthropology and began his gradual vegan lifestyle detour in 2005.
