Escher naturally gravitated towards
veganism as a child; but without guidance
this proved to be a challenging road. She
slowly learned to overcome each challenge
while also living a high performance lifestyle.
Gene Wei, DOM worked with Ursula
on the VSG to adapt his dietary recommendations
for the vegan diet. As a practitioner of Oriental
Medicine he often recommends nutritional therapies
to his patients for optimal health.
For people on vegan diets, it's so important
to be aware of what we eat, and how
it affects the body, mind, and spirit.
Nutrients are the building blocks of life,
and in many ways, food is Nature's medicine.
Our modern lifestyles puts so much extra demand
on our bodies and minds. With today's fast
paced lifestyles, it's more important
than ever to optimize the foods that
we eat, and to get the most out of each
meal. Though technology has helped us in so
many ways, it has also created many illusive
hazards when it comes to highly processed
and artificial foods. Understanding these
dangers, and where they may be lurking, is
also key to navigating the food terrain.
For author Ursula Escher, "The
Vegan Survival Guide" represents
decades of personal struggle, discovery, and
success. Growing up vegan wasn't
easy for her, especially in a meat loving
country like Brazil. Since the idea of veganism
was unknown to her family as a child, she
lived in a state of near malnourishment, constantly
struggling with her diet and health. But all
of these obstacles gave her a unique desire
to explore, and figure out how to restore
her health with vegan foods and nutrition.
"The Vegan Survival Guide"
shows you how she did this, and explains all
of the things that she has realized over decades
of learning. From food based detoxification,
to brain and immune system support, "The
Vegan Survival Guide" explains how
to get the most out of your diet in a way
that's easy and fun to read. Life
is easier when you feel your best! We'll show
you how to get there!

Greatest Vegan Cookbook I have ever bought!,
March 3, 2014 By Heatherly42
I absolutely love this book! I wasn't expecting
too much as most vegan cookbooks seem to think
vegan life should be tasteless lol but this
book is not only informative about why each
dish is good for you, the recipes taste great
too. So glad I bought it now and I highly
recommend for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone
who loves healthy, yummy vegetables!

Unique add to my vegan cookbook collection,
December 24, 2013 By Jackie
I own a lot of vegan cookbooks, and this
one is a unique add to my collection because
it teaches you about the foods and cooking
methods. I love the chapter on oils because
it actually walks the reader through the selection
of oils and explains which oils can be used
for cooking at specific temperatures. The
author brilliantly suggests that we use a
laser thermometer to check cook temperature
(p.s. the laser thermometers also double as
a great cat toy). I would prefer to see color
food pictures, but the food detail bubbles
surrounding the pictures more than make up
for the lack of color. I made the Mashed Rosemary
Garlic Cauliflower for some cruciferous aficionados,
and they loved this unique recipe. I'm looking
forward to trying the Peaches and Cream Chia!
Good Guide for your health if you're vegan
or not, December 17, 2013 By Beige
Where was this book decades ago, when vegetarians
were told they would die on a plant- based
diet? The layout, photos, and information
are helpful for new and old vegans. I love
the reminders of what certain foods can do
to add to your health. This is an excellent
gift for new vegans and their worried parents.
This is a great book for anyone interested
in improving their health, both vegans and
non-vegans., December 16, 2013 By
This book is well-researched and presented
in an easy-to-read format that is both instructive
and entertaining, unlike some other boring
books. There are informative checklists throughout
the book as well as recipes for dishes that
even non-vegans would enjoy. The recipes are
well-organized with sections listing the ingredients
with some variation, preparation time, and
easy-to-follow directions. Though there is
a lot of disagreement in the field of nutrition,
the book presents a lot of the information
that is consistent with other reliable sources
that I have seen. I recommended this book
to my friends, and without exception the ones
that read the book all had a positive opinion.
I am a healthy person, and I take a scientific
approach to improve my well-being. I feel
that the information in this book could improve
my health even more by helping me fine-tune
my diet and meet my nutritional needs. Thank
you for an exceptional book.
A DEFINITE MUST HAVE FOR ANY VEGAN, NEW OR
OLD!, December 12, 2013 By RACHEL
This book takes care of all those nutrition
worries that all/others have about being vegan.
It is very very clear, the layout is simple,
entertaining, not overwhelming, and informative.
I believe nutrition plays a big role in our
mood and this book will definitely get you
where you want to be. This book is a must
have in your vegan book collection, I cannot
wait to see what they put out next.
Awesome! Unlike any other vegan cookbook!,
December 5, 2013 By Jane H
I've read many cookbooks and I must say this
is unlike any other. Sharing it with my friends
and family as well. I work in a busy office
on the computer, I often feel tired, have
headaches, and end
up taking aspirins. I realized my diet was
not supporting my health and started following
some of the VSG guidelines and ingredient
tips. Here are a few things I did:
* Added more brain/ dopamine supporting foods
and drinks to all my meals
* Added more walnuts, and protein to my breakfast
* Added tart cherries/ tart cherry juice to
I do feel noticeably better than ever before.
Looking back, my "on the go" breakfasts
and coffee were probably leading to caffeine
and sugar crashes.
All the recipes are healthy and there is
something for every kind of taste! I really
love the brain supporting pesto recipe! I
also like the tips on adjusting for gluten
free and soy free diets, as I tend to avoid
these ingredients myself. All recipes I tried
so far turned out great, which is something
I've had trouble with in the past with other
cookbooks. Love it! Highly recommend it!
Good addition to a prepper library,
December 4, 2013
By ric (WHITE LAKE, WI, United States)
This a very complete book and covers the
topic well. Bring up things I liked to know
about like GMOs. If you do not know what GMOs
are, look them up. I have not read the whole
book, but what I did read is well written
and laid out. I am not a vegan but I can see
the value of this information, as storing
this type of food can be easier than meat
and fish, for example.
