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.

good

What did you like most about The Happy Vegan?

the light hearted story telling that delivered a message

Any additional comments?

I am new to being vegan, and I listened to this to give me encouragement. It did, the chapter on animal cruelty ruined my day because its so awful to hear... but it made me strong and gave me resolve to stick to what I have started.
I struggle to see meat in the same way now, and there is a sense of relief in my soul now that I don't eat animals... I feel creative and excited about food now... herbs, spices... trying new vegetables. life is good.

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 👍🏻

Amazing from beginning to end!

This book gave me life! I was already thinking vegan. I saw Russell Simmons on Oprah's Super Soul Sunday. He talked about being vegan and meditation. So....I bought the book! It was like an investment. I went through it so fast that I was disappointed when it ended. He explained the benefits from all angles. I really liked that everything wasn't just from his perspective...he referenced so many others. My favorite part was when he explained that its okay when we mess up because we're human (just pick back up and keep it moving...he even gave examples). That was huge for me. The book ended with helpful resources for vegans and also with a snippet of info on meditation....it was just enough good listening about meditation to entice me to buy his book Success Through Stillness...

Enlightening!! A must read/listen

I feel like I've been living on another planet and I'm the alien. I still thought our food came from farms. This book is a AHA moment. Thank you so much for the information that lead me to Food Inc and other videos. This makes my shift to vegan and meditation very meaningful. I've been attending hot yoga classes for the last year and a half, but still did not know anything about the animal abuse. Thanks again for the eye opener. I haven't been keeping this to myself. I've been sharing this with anyone that will listen. Peace and Blessings. Tanya of Maryland
