We have been anxiously awaiting the publication of Vegan for Her: The Woman’s Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet, by Virginia Messina and JL Fields. Finally, starting today, this veritable bible is here for our consumption, and while supplies last, Our Hen House is offering copies just for you. Hopefully by now you are already familiar with our stellar thank you gifts, and we are now ecstatic to add Vegan for Her to the mix. In exchange for your tax-deductible donation to Our Hen House in the amount of $50 (or more), we will send you a copy of Vegan for Her AND an ethically-sourced, vegan-made Our Hen House tote bag, touting our tag line, “change the world for animals.”
Ginny and JL are family to us here at OHH. JL serves on our Board of Directors, Ginny is on our Advisory Board, and both have been featured on our podcast and regularly contribute to our Thought for Food column. We have an incredible amount of respect for each of them, and are great fans of Ginny’s last book, Vegan for Life (which she co-authored with Jack Norris). To think that Ginny and JL are now joining forces for the greater good is nothing short of breathtaking. Here’s how Vegan for Her is described:
Vegan for Her: The Woman’s Guide to Being Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet is a guide to meeting the unique needs of vegan women, with recipes and practical information for optimal health at every stage of a woman’s life. In Vegan for Her, dietitian Virginia Messina tackles the issues most pertinent to women who follow or who are considering a vegan diet, and JL Fields provides health-supportive recipes and tips for taking your veganism beyond the plate. With specific guidance on meeting women’s unique nutritional needs throughout the lifecycle and information about food choices that relate to many health concerns, Vegan for Her is a practical and realistic guide to making sure your plant-based diet is as healthy as it can be.
And stay tuned to our podcast, because in the near future, Ginny and JL will be joining us once again, this time to discuss the book, and answer questions that so many of us (particularly women) have, such as:
- Do vegan women need to concern themselves with protecting their bone health?
- What’s the real skinny on fats?
- Can soy actually be protective, or is it linked to breast cancer?
- Are young vegan women and teens at higher risk for having eating disorders?
- Can a vegan diet help with depression?
- What role does community play vis a vis veganism?
These are, of course, some of the questions answered in Vegan for Her. There is simply no book out there that focuses so specifically and thoroughly on veganism — as experienced by women — and to have two such amazing women as Ginny and JL as the voices behind it gives me hope, and inspires me. I have absolutely no doubt it will do the same for you.
We have a limited supply of copies of Vegan for Her, so take advantage of this incredible offer to get this book, AND an Our Hen House tote bag, for a one-time, tax-deductible donation of at least $50.
