Stuff Every Vegetarian Should Know By Katherine McGuire

From Meatless Monday to flexitarian diets, many Americans are making a more conscious effort to eat in ways that are greener, healthier, and better for the planet. But vegetarianism can seem impossible for the uninitiated, who not only have to learn how to cook meat-free meals, but may struggle to find delicious and filling foods when on a budget, dining out, and traveling.


In Stuff Every Vegetarian Should Know (Quirk Books; September 26, 2017; $9.95), long-time vegetarian Katherine McGuire provides an easy and approachable guide to plant-based eating for readers of all levels of commitment. Part of Quirk’s best-selling how-to series, this convenient, pocket-sized handbook is the perfect tool for adopting and living the veggie lifestyle, featuring chapters on everything from nutrition, food shopping, and cooking to navigating social situations as a vegetarian and troubleshooting the “Help, I’m still hungry!” stage.


This compact guide to eating, cooking, and living meat-free is filled with essential information, including the following:

  • An overview of why eating plants is good for the environment, your wallet, and your health
  • Tips and tricks for grocery shopping, from finding the best bargains and selecting fresh vegetables to curating a well-stocked pantry
  • Instructions for cooking staples like grains and beans, plus customizable recipes for soups and stir-fries
