Amazing Book on Macrobiotics!
The Complete Macrobiotic Diet - Denny Waxman

I started reading Denny Waxman's book because I am interested in health and natural healing. I started by looking at his website when i was searching for a macrobiotic counselor. Then, I learned about his non-profit macrobiotics school the Strengthening Health Institute. Once I got there, i found the best macrobiotic book ever in the Complete Macrobiotic Diet book. 

 

The book itself was the easiest macrobiotic book that I have read and has so many ways to improve your health through easy to implement tips. He is all about adding instead of subtracting things to your diet and routine... such a great way to think about things!

Noooooooooooooooooooooo.
Will Travel For Vegan Food: 2 Years, 48 ... Will Travel For Vegan Food: 2 Years, 48 States, 547 Restaurants, +39,000 Miles - Kristin Lajeunesse

This sounded like a fun, different read. Young woman decides she's going to take a chance and despite having a new graduate degree, a new job that she loves and a new relationship, Kristin Lajeunesse is going to take a road trip and eat at every single vegan restaurant in the US. Based on the cover (back and front), it looks like it took about 2 years across 48 states and 547 restaurants. Cool! I've read books on similar premises (for example, 'Slice Harvester' is one man's quest to eat a slice of pizza in *every* single pizzeria in NYC) and so this seemed like a good book to read to continue my food theme. 

 

And that's where my enthusiasm basically ended. Initially it seemed like an endearing read of what drove Lajeunesse to decide to just pick everything up, drive around in a van and take this road trip. But as she talks about her various relationships the book very quickly and steadily deteriorates into something that is not at all reflected by the book blurb and cover. 

 

It's not about the food. The restaurants and food, in fact, are barely covered. It's about finding herself, stumbling through various romantic relationships and her general love life, what's going on in her family. The "vegan food road trip" appears to be a hook. I don't know. My eyes started glazing over after the first few chapters. I don't have a "read until X point" rule but once I saw that by page 48 we're still not really talking about the restaurants or the food I could tell that this was going to be a loss.

 

For the right person this could certainly be a good read. But the criticisms are on target: sometimes the writing isn't just very good at all. How on earth did she manage to crowdfund this thing? Did she *ever* really think about how she was in a position to safely undertake an endeavor like this under relative safety (financially, physically, etc.)? There wasn't even a list of restaurants in the book? For a title that's priced at $20 (yes I know it's printed on recycled paper and it's a smaller/indie imprint) the least we could get would be a list or an index as a guide for the restaurants she apparently visited. I have no interest in the blog, thanks.

 

I wasn't expecting something like 'Sistah Vegan' because I could see that these were two entirely different books (I only read them close together because they were about vegans and veganism). But this is absolutely not what the title/blurb says it is and it is much too expensive. I'm glad I got this as a bargain book but I wish it had been available at my library instead. Borrow if something about it something like an 'Eat, Pray, Love' for vegans appeals to you but I'd skip it.

This didn't change my mind but I appreciated the insight.
Sistah Vegan: Food, Identity, Health, and Society: Black Female Vegans Speak - A. Breeze Harper

Although I personally do not have any interest in going vegan or even vegetarian, I was intrigued by this book. I don't know many vegetarians or vegans very well and none who are black. I understand that this can be a topic fraught with issues regarding class, environmental concerns, racism, accessibility, personal identity, relationships and more. So it seemed interesting to read a book from the viewpoint of black female vegans on their thoughts.

 

The book does match the description (mostly). It's a series of essays, recollections, poems, thoughts, etc. on what it means to be vegan, how they came to their decision, how it affected their lives, their relationships (romantic or otherwise), what are issues they perceive (good and bad) surrounding being vegan and black women, etc. As others note, some pieces are quite good and I was disappointed there wasn't more from particular writers.

 

But, as a collection of writings it is understandably a mixed bag. Some really needed a better editor, some needed to talk less about themselves (as in, there was too much life story/personal anecdotes that were off topic for a work like this). You'll find some great writings and thoughts on the practicality (or not) of being vegan but you'll also find some of the perhaps "stereotypical" tropes. Some authors were far too spiritual or "New Age-y" for me. Like another reviewer I side-eyed the refusal to vaccinate. However, there's a good chance you'll find something that speaks to you among the stuff that does not.

 

And some of the criticisms I think are on target. The uneven quality of writing has already been mentioned but some were just downright odd: I thought it was strange the Afterword was written by a white woman (who herself acknowledges the potential problems) but that was my own person quirk. I also somewhat disagree with the back cover description that calls the book a "handbook for our time." It's an interesting collection but I wouldn't call it a handbook to learn or to see as a "how to" guide.

 

It did not change my mind (but I wasn't looking to have it changed or somehow have an eye-opening experience). However, I did feel I did get quite a bit out of it and I appreciated being able to read a collection like this all in one place rather than piecing it together from social media, books, etc. I was happy to pay for it but I had a coupon and if it had been at the library I would have very likely borrowed it if I could have.
