The newest book by top plant-based physician Dr. Neal Barnard - The Vegan Starter Kit - has won the praise of well-known vegan advocates Suzy Amis Cameron and James Cameron.

The book, which launched on December 24, 'gives readers all the tools they need to get started: delicious recipes, answers to frequently asked questions, guidelines on ensuring complete nutrition, quick-reference charts for sources of calcium and protein, tips for modifying recipes, and more'.

It answers a number of common questions about vegan diets, including How do I plan a vegan meal? Is protein an issue? Which are the best choices at restaurants or if I’m traveling? It also includes information on healthy eating in childhood, pregnancy, and other stages of life, and a complete set of basic meals, holiday feasts, snacks, among many other tips.

"We've known Neal Barnard for years as a leader in the plant-based revolution," said Suzy Amis Cameron and James Cameron. "His new book makes it so easy to start your plant-based journey that we're recommending the Vegan Starter Kit to everyone we meet who's 'vegan curious' or just interested in good health, better energy levels, and a longer, more vibrant life."

"Dr. Barnard makes a compelling case as to why all of us should ‘test drive’ a vegan diet," added journalist and television personality Meredith Vieira. "His guidebook is straightforward and simple to follow...as easy to digest as a plant-based lifestyle. All in all, a delicious read."

"Eating healthier is the most common New Year's resolution people make," Dr. Barnard said. "A vegan diet is a simple, fun, and delicious way to achieve that goal."
