I ♥ Melisser! She’s not only one of the most kick-ass chiquitas in the vegan blogosphere (check out The Urban Housewife), but she also has a fantabulous, comprehensive guide to vegan living—The Vegan Girl’s Guide to Life. Melisser’s book covers all the basics of veganism in a fun, colorful way featuring DIY craft projects (e.g. knitted cupcake potholders and recycled gift bows), cruelty-free beauty tips, travel advice, recipes (e.g. Sloppy Joes, Chipotle Hominy Stew and Broccoli Miso Chowder), and lots of other cool stuff.
Seriously, this book is packed with lots of pretty pics and loads of vegan goodness—including Q&As, tips and spotlights on some of the most respected vegan chefs, business owners and bloggers in the world (like Isa Chandra Moskowitz, Hannah Kaminsky, Celine Steen, Julie Hasson, Kittee Berns, Kelly Peloza, etc.).
