“This is the eBook I wish I had when I went plant based.”Faith Vandermolen | The Conscientious Eater
I honestly can’t believe it. I published a vegan cookbook! And it’s quite a hefty one too, I might add!
It was over 6 years ago that I decided to go vegan overnight and I SO wish I had access to this book that first morning. I remember staring into the fridge at my greek yogurt thinking, “What on earth can I eat for breakfast?!” Those first few weeks were honestly rough as I had no idea how to cook or bake without animal products.
Since then, however, through lots of experimenting, trial and error and research, eating a plant based diet has become second nature to me!
Now I want to share what I’ve learned over these last 6 years with YOU.
FAQ From People Going Plant-Based
This eBook contains the answers to the most frequently asked questions I’ve received over the years from friends, family, strangers and of course you guys, my readers! Questions like:
- WHAT DO YOU EAT?!?
- Why did you go vegan?
- How do you bake without eggs, butter and milk?
- If you don’t eat meat, where do you get your protein?
- Is bread vegan? Is chocolate vegan? Is pasta vegan?
- What are your favorite, go-to recipes?
- Are these brownies really vegan? So health-wise it’s like I’m eating salad, right??
As I mentioned, this eBook is hefty. Below I’ll share more about what all is included!

Protein Sources for Vegans
Protein. Protein. PROTEIN!!! It seems like everyone these days is worried about getting enough protein! But the reality is only 3% of Americans are protein deficient. So where is this worry coming from? In PLANT BiASED I share where I think this worry is coming from and what nutrient 97% of American’s should be more concerned about.
To help put your mind at ease and give you an idea of where vegans get their protein, I’ve included 16 common protein sources for vegans and their protein content per serving.
Weekly Plant-Based Meal Plan for Beginners
You might be saying, “It’s great to have access to so many great recipes, but I just need you to plan it out for me.” Done. For 1 week at least!
This was one of the most requested features asked for on my Instagram poll. I hope it gives everyone a good start! Or at least some good inspiration for some meatless meals that you can incorporate into your weekly meal plan.
Vegan Substitute Guide
This vegan cookbook isn’t just for beginners. I’ve included my most commonly used substitutes so that you can veganize any recipe as you expand your repertoire! You’ll find perfect vegan substitutes for:
- Yogurt / Cream
I’ve also included 9 Basic Vegan Substitution Recipes for omelettes, sour cream, ground beef, nacho cheese, heavy cream, ricotta cheese, pulled pork and two kinds of eggs in baking.
My Top 6 Plant-Based Books & Plant-Based Documentaries
There were a handful of books and documentaries that inspired me to go vegan overnight and others have given me added fuel for my 5-year journey. I’m always looking for resources to continue my education, so I hope the list of books and documentaries in this book will inspire you to learn more about a plant-based diet as well!
What’s the Difference between Plant-Based & Vegan?
These terms are mostly interchangeable, but I share the difference in my eBook and where I stand.
Clickable Table of Contents and Meal Plan
I didn’t want this 205-page behemoth of an cookbook to be difficult to navigate. That’s why I included clickable links in every section’s Table of Contents and in the Meal Plan. You’ll easily be able to jump to the different sections and recipes!
