But I Could Never Go Vegan Cookbook Giveaway


Because we hadn’t done a giveaway in quite sometime, we were cooking up a Xmas/New Year bonanza. But that’s soooo far away, who can really wait that long?! So here we’ve decided to give away a copy of our favourite cookbook, “But I Could Never Go Vegan!”. It’s a great cookbook that has “125 Recipes That Prove You Can Live Without Cheese, It’s Not All Rabbit Food, and Your Friends Will Still Come Over for Dinner”.


Don’t just take our word for it, head over to Goodreads and take a gander at the reviews yourself.

This cook book is absolutely wonderful! I have cooked several recipes from here already and they are a huge hit with me and my family . I am vegan and have to eat gluten free so it is a challenge. The author labels each recipe with tags like sugar free , gluten free, I still can make many things that are not labeled gluten free with gluten free ingredients . Very clear concise directions and easy to follow

This is a fantastic and entertaining cookbook for anyone looking to begin or add to a vegan (or similar) diet! Not only are the recipes eye-catching, but the author even titles her chapters after common misconceptions against a plant based diet (such as “I could never give up cheese!”, “Where would I get my protein?”, and “It’s all rabbit food.”) and then includes recipes that prove them wrong

Yet another awesome cookbook. This author takes a clever spin on it though by categorizing chapters according to common questions vegans get or have themselves before going vegan. Such as “But I could never give up cheese!”, “I don’t want to feel left out at potlucks”, and “What about protein?”. These aren’t word-for-word, but the gist is there. This is brilliant! I can’t wait to try out some of these recipes myself

It’s super easy to enter this time around with entry options from Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook and more. Not into Social Media? No worries! Just like last time, you can comment below about the hardest part about being a vegan and you are in the draw too. How easy is that!

  1. Cheryl Young says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan for me is finding recipes I like.

  2. Emma says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan is that my mom has been riding me about my choice to go vegan. This cook book would be very helpful since I am a new convert.

  3. Debi says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan is finding a healthy place to eat

  4. Steph says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan is quizzing waiters. It’s embarrassing

  5. Teslaca says:

    Planning ahead is the hardest thing for me sometimes. It’s easy to stop at a store on the way to work and just grab something quick, but there’s nothing vegan to choose from. So, I need to be sure to shop and have things ready for last minute meals.

  6. Jacky says:

    The hardest thing about veganism for me is explaining it to Midwestern relatives! This book would be great for convincing them that compassion can be delicious and inexpensive!

  7. Jaclyn says:

    The hardest part about being vegan is dealing with non-vegans.

  8. Leanne S says:

    The hardest thing would be eating out or eating at a non-vegan friend’s house

  9. Ashley says:

    The hardest thing about being vegan is finding vegan options in social situations: parties, non-vegan restaurants, BBQs, etc.

  10. Anton Lev says:

    I always wanted to be vegan but I’m not good at cooking and don’t know how to get started. I need a simple guide that would help me get started and be informed. I’m been putting off having a healthy diet for a while and would like to have your book to get started. Thanks.

    • Adina says:

      Hi. You don’t need to be good at cooking to create vegan dishes. You just look around for what’s available, and put things together in a way that tastes good. Or put your own vegan twists on already available recipes. I guarantee you will get all the necessary nutrients without overthinking. You probably need to know /read about the basics, but that’s precisely the thing about cooking: the carnivorous/dairy based diet asks for a LOT of complexity in cooking & preparing the dishes, because it is aimed at a “prestigious” lifestyle. The vegan does not… because we try to keep everything fresh.
      I’m just starting out, here is what I do:

  11. Heather says:

    Cheese. I was vegan for 3 years and vegetarian for an additional 4. That was about 4 years ago now. I could probably do it again, but now I am engaged to an omni who abhores the idea of veganism. Maybe some of these recipes will change his mind!

  12. Meghan B says:

    I’m not vegan yet, that’s why I need this cookbook 😉

  13. Jermisha says:

    I have been incorporating more fruits, vegetables, beans and grains into my diet since the past month or so. By doing so I have lost 17 pounds and counting. I now know that eating more plant based foods verses non plant based foods is the way to go for better health.

    This cookbook would provide me with healthy meal ideals to prepare for myself rather than reaching for unhealthy fast foods.

  14. DJ says:

    I would have to say eating out at restaurants.

  15. Maxine G says:

    I’m currently a part time vegan, but spending more and more days eating plant-based food. Giving up cheese is the hardest thing for me to do, but I’m enjoying experimenting with lots of new fresh flavours

  16. Nelleke says:

    I am a vegetarian for more than 20 years now. But I am looking for more vegan recipes because they help me a lot for a better and healthier live stile. I feel so mutch better when I eat vegan. So I hope I can make a chance to win this book.

  17. Krista says:

    The hardest thing for me about being Vegan/Vegetarian is the COST. I try to eat local/organic as much as possible and this costs significantly more. Also, many vegan recipes have specific ingredients that are not cheap.

    • Adina says:

      Yes, you need to shop smart. But then again, eating vegan does not require (i.e. “does not make you addicted to”) eating *as much food* as non-vegan, so things can be balanced out that way.

    • Adina says:

      By the way, you need to separate those expensive ingredients, from the more common ones which don’t have as much marketing tagged into the price… you know, the “humble” vegetables that seem boring. In my country we have a tradition of fasting, so vegan is very much like fasting except on a permanent basis. One time, I experimented with buying one type of food per week: only vegetables, and then only meats. Guess when I came up cheaper… A lot of things are illusions. You have to know the families of the edible vegetables, because when someone asks you use “quinoa” and the like, for exaple you could use beans or lentils in the same recipe – and be no worse for it… (Or leafy greens! Lol I love how generic they are).

  18. I think the hardest part us coming up with counters to all the challenges we get about our diet. This cookbook helps us respond easily!

So, what do you think ?
