A list of books we consider to be worthwhile

Books that are on the top of my list and on my bookshelf. Each one, I believe, is the best and easiest read of it's topic. These books are for those who are already vegetarian/vegan, wanting to become vegetarian/vegan or to pass onto that non-believer who always picks an argument

"The Good Life" Series

This is a series of books focused on helping people get onto the Vegetarian or Vegan path. These are books that I have written and are continuing to write. They are available both in Kindle and in Paperback versions on Amazon.

Why Be Vegetarian

 Book 1: Why Be Vegetarian - Debunking the Excusesbuy now from the vegetarian center

Author:  Fee O'Shea

Comes with the FREE bonus book "The Vegetarian Way" the link to which is inside the book. Many meat eaters would like to go down the vegetarian path but most have an excuse which, to them, is very valid. This book explores those excuses:

  • Have you ever thought you would like to be a vegetarian?
  • You would join the growing number of fabulous people who are taking up vegetarianism.
  • But wait...if you did go vegetarian (insert excuse here).

How to be vegetarian

 Book 2: How To Be Vegetarian - 7 Easy Steps to Get Startedbuy now from the vegetarian center

Author:  Fee O'Shea

As the title says - 7 easy steps.  This little book is all about how to get started on the Vegetarian journey by putting your toe in the water and going from there.  It does not tell you to give up meat entirely, in fact, just the opposite.  A great companion book to the one above.  This is not a recipe book but does have some tips and tricks.

Clean EatingBook 3: A Clean Eating Nutrition Guide - for Fexitarians, Vegans & Vegetariansbuy now from the vegetarian center

Author:  Fee O'Shea

The 3rd book in "The Good Life" series looks at nutrition.  This book will flip the lid on a few nutritional facts.  As one reader says "...She's a natural teacher, writer and, I might add researcher. She is truly concerned for our health, the proper treatment of animals and a clean environment.
Although she expresses her own opinion, she does so without negating the feelings of others. I have actually learned more from her..." - Bobbi Rae.

This is the last book in the "Good Life" series and possibly one of the most important when it comes to your health and the health of animals and the planet.  Switching to being vegan doesn't have to be at all difficult and this book helps to get you through the main stumbling blocks.

One reader of the series says: 

"I will NEVER get tired of reading Fee O'Shea's books! And I am loving 'The Good Life' series!..." - Flip'n'Chip.
