BOSH How to Live Vegan book – no 1 best seller by Henry Firth and Ian Theasby

A great introduction on how to live as a Vegan:

The authors Henry Firth and Ian Theasby provide the definitive guide. This book is an excellent non-judgemental guide to why and how to become a vegan.

Really beautifully written and explains carefully why we might consider such a path.

No preaching just great ideas and reasoning, no funny stuff.

It is a diet that includes a wide variety of nuts, oils, fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.

Bosh gives examples of why this diet might help you and the world.
