Treating your body right is a radical act of self-love

The Smart Girl's Guide to Going Vegetarian is an inclusive guide—written by a nutritionist—for young people looking to learn more about what they put in their bodies and how food can be used to practice self-care, mindfulness, sustainability, and body positivity.

These days we're immersed in diet culture—every other celebrity is vegan, influencers push skinny teas, and we all know at least one person who can wax poetic about the benefits of keto. But here's the thing: what you put in your body isn't about labels or a number on a scale, it's about feeling good and living well.

No labels. No fuss. Whether you're going vegan, vegetarian, fish-only, chicken-only, or plant-based (except for the occasional Crunchwrap Supreme from Taco Bell) this book is for you. Because mindful eating is for everyone: if you want to cut down on meat out of curiosity, to boost your energy, to care for the environment, or to better understand what you need to feel your best, here you'll find advice on how to eat well and treat yourself with compassion.

This accessible vegetarian cookbook and guide includes:

  • Daily meal ideas and easy vegetarian recipes that everyone will love
  • Tips for discussing your food choices with family and friends
  • Ideas for finding good food when you're away from home and have less control over what you put in your body
  • Getting enough iron, protein, and other vital nutrients to live well
