Happy Herbivore Blog

If you follow me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you know I've spent the last few weeks in Asia :)

After writing Vegan in Europe, I decided I needed to explore a new continent :)

(I suppose I technically went to Asia when I stayed in Istanbul, but that doesn't really count, right?!)

Although there are so many places we want to see in Asia (The Great Wall is on my bucket list!! As well as the elephant sanctuary in ...

Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings is here!!

Well, the cookbook stork already visited a few of you early so you already have my newest cookbook baby, but for everyone else... TODAY IS THE DAY!

The Official release date for my newest cookbook, Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings.

p.s. I've taken to calling Holidays & The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living my twinsies, since they were both released this year :)

ANYWAY! My new cookbook is an all-out celebration of food for all year long. It's not just Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, New Year's -- I mean yes, I covered all that!

My team (and everyone at my publisher, too) feels this book is my best ...

Here's Stevi's story in her own words...

In 2012, I realized that I ...

I think my crowning achievement on this blog has been the Herbies of the Week series, which I look forward to every Monday!

This series started three years ago (back in 2011) and I'm always in awe, inspired, and touched, when I think about all the different people and their amazing stories, that have been shared here every week.

I've decided to start reaching out to our past Herbies of the Week to see where they are today ...
