Publisher's Summary

Master entrepreneur, original hip-hop mogul, and three-time New York Times best-selling author Russell Simmons offers an inspiring guide to the benefits of conscious eating and veganism.
In the New York Times best seller Success Through Stillness, Russell Simmons shared how meditation can be used as a powerful tool to access potential in all aspects of life, having seen himself how achieving inner peace led to outward success.
In The Happy Vegan, Simmons shares how once he started practicing yoga and meditation, he became more conscious of his choices, particularly the choices he made regarding his diet. Simmons first adopted a vegetarian and then vegan diet and almost immediately began to experience the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of eating green and clean. He delves into research about mindful eating, the links between stress and poor eating habits, the importance of listening to your body, and the well-documented problems associated with eating animal products and processed foods along with tips on how to transition to a vegan diet.
Drawing on his own experience, the experiences of others, and science and research on the health benefits of conscious eating and veganism, The Happy Vegan is an accessible and inspiring guide to help others make the move toward a vegan diet and a more successful, focused, and purposeful life.

Great book about the inconvenient truth

Although it takes a 10 minute to get used to the American-ness of this audio, it's a really interesting book about the inconvenient truth of the horrific processes that surround consuming animal products.
It was preaching to the converted for me but I still learnt and enjoyed listening 👍🏻

Frisky and informative

I'm new to veganism and I wanted to get some inspiration and some information - not so much to convince my self but to give my self some back up when under close family questioning ....
I wanted to find something that would appeal to my two teenage sons also -
This audible has been fantastic for both these tasks - the delivery is pacey and brisk - full of warmth and personal stories You will have noticed, I'm sure, that there are plenty of inspired young women offering 'clean eating' guides out there but I found this a very welcome change of perspective and definitely something my teenagers felt more able to relate to.
There are plenty of facts/statistics/references for those who'd like quantifiable information and there's spiritual inspiration also.
Having given up my transcendental meditation practice more than a decade ago the very clear and straightforward instructions at the end of the book have inspired me to start again -
The reading quality couldn't be clearer-
I thoroughly recommend this book.
Many thanks audible.
