Hey there SexyTofu readers . I have super huge news! My writing partner/bossman/good friend vegan chef Ayinde Howell and I are extremely excited to officially be able to announce that our book, The Lusty Vegan, A Cookbook and Dating Manifesto for Vegans and The People Who Love Them, will be released in the fall of 2014!
Part cookbook, part lifestyle book, The Lusty Vegan uses humor and great recipes to solve one of the biggest issues in the vegan community: you’re vegan, your partner is not. Or maybe you’re a vegan having a hard time finding another vegan to make a nice little veg-nest with. Locking down a compatible mate seems to be the largest problem within in the vegan community, making finding love–and keeping it–a little harder than it already is. How do we know? From experience, of course.
Despite the fact that Ayinde and I are full-force, compassionate vegans, neither of us has ever dated another vegan! Yep! We know we’re not alone, so we set out to help solve the problem. In the book, we break down why it’s important to make peace at the table, and in the bedroom. Since we really, really want to help our community find peace in their relationships (and facilitate vegan baby making), TLV is not only geared toward vegans dating omnivores, but to omnis who are dating vegans! We’ve got everybody’s back, here.
The book includes 80 drool-worthy recipes, as well as tips, anecdotes, and narrative stories to help bridge the divide at the dinner table.
The book came from all of the musings Ayinde and I have had over at iEatGrass.com in my Lusty Vegan column, inspired by you lovely readers! Thanks, guys. We started researching for the book over two years ago, and reached out several times to our vegan community while compiling data – how scientific of us!
The book is being published by Vegan Heritage Press and distributed by Andrews McMeel Publishing/Simon & Schuster. The actual release drops in early October, but it’s currently up for pre-sale on Amazon!
We’re so excited to be able to share this book with all of you, and we hope you’re excited too!
