This all-new book from the authors of The Vegan Cheat Sheet is a road map to a mostly vegan life. It is for people who want to avoid most animal products but see the value in incorporating the nutritional benefits of a more seagan approach (plants + fish).

People choose to become vegan for different reasons, but for some it s tough to stick to such a strict diet. SEAGAN EATING offers a healthy alternative by motivating readers to adopt a seagan diet largely plant-based but including seafood. At the same time, the book discourages evil ingredients and addresses many of today s food conundrums (GMOs, organic versus nonorganic, etc.). A recipe section features easy-to-make fish dishes, plus some of Amy s most decadent vegan recipes. As with The Vegan Cheat Sheet, all recipes are oil-free. It s the ultimate manual for delicious, healthful eating.

Readers will learn to:

Maximize their nutrient intake with plant-based, nutrient-dense foods, along with omega 3 rich fish.

Enjoy more freedom when preparing meals or dining out by including some seafood in their diets.

Prepare satisfying portions by eliminating or lightening up on unhealthy fats.

Avoid the bad boys (additives, sugars, trans fats, etc.). Use healthy replacements for popular guilty pleasures (i.e., fast food and junk food).

Self-proclaimed foodies and research fanatics Cramer and McComsey, coauthors ofThe Vegan Cheat Sheet, team up once again, this time with a new diet to share. It still consists primarily of plant-based foods, but now includes omega-3 fatty acids sourced from sustainable seafood. Per American Heart Association recommendations, it allows for seafood two to three times a week, with the occasional indulgence permitted. This charming guide shares the authors personal stories and reasoning for their cheating on plants, detailing also why they ve forgone meat, dairy, and eggs. Cramer and McComsey include an essential shopping list for the diet staples, including baking ingredients and freezer items. And before they go into how to shop for sustainable seafood, they make sure to explain why fish is the healthiest way to obtain essential fatty acids. The bulk of this guide covers all the bases: essential kitchen tools, meal plans, and recipes, along with instructions for navigating restaurants and understanding food labels. Also included are vegan foods to avoid and notes on organic foods, superfoods, and GMOs. This little powerhouse diet will appeal to those looking for healthy nourishment without a militant plan.---Publishers Weekly"

Review Text

    Oh dear. Clearly, the authors weren't getting enough money from selling to vegans. And I get it. Sort of. Some of my best friends believe in killing sentient creatures. I wish they didn't, but I love them for other reasons.What we vegans want, however, is a modicum of respect from ex-vegans. We can't stop them deciding that killing is fine. But we can and should expect them not to try to make money from mocking our views."Seagan" is an oxymoron. It makes as much sense as the phrases "Christian Satanist" or "experienced porn star who is also a virgin". You cannot be a vegan, and, by definition seek to avoid animal use as much as possible, whilst simultaneously smacking our lips at the thought of deliberately eating sentient creatures. Fish not only feel pain but are more intelligent than we used to believe.If you are vegan but are worried about omega 3, check out information from actual vegans. Like this: [...]So please, stop with the nonsensical terms like "seagan". It's not only nonsensical, it's insulting to those of us who are actual vegans. You know, the people who bought Ms Cramer and Ms McComsey's earlier book ("The Vegan Cheat Sheet", in which they were telling us how easy it was to be vegan).Fact: it's not always easy-peasy to be vegan. But it's not as hard as most things people manage to do successfully. More to the point, it's worth it.

    The authors talk about a "mostly vegan" diet but the simple face is, mostly vegan means not vegan at all. On that basis, this book is false advertising.

    Really dull and uninspiring
