Vegan Confessions of an Ex-Omnivore and His Survival Guide to Living Fully (Literally and Metaphorically).

Growing up in an all-women household and coddled endlessly by his Italian mother and grandmother, Eric Lindstrom was nourished to obesity on meaty sauces, fried eggs, and butter-laden cookies. After spending the first half of his life as an adamant omnivore, Lindstrom went 100% vegan. Reluctantly. Overnight. From burgers to beets, from pork to parsnips.

It’s time for a down-to-earth book that proves anyone can go vegan (even someone who once ate sixty-eight chicken wings in a sitting). How can a man adopt a vegan approach? Won’t he die of protein deficiency? What if he is married to a vegan woman? How would he order a salad at a Minnesota steakhouse? What should he bring to a gluten-free, nut-free, macrobiotic, nightshade-free, oil-free, vegan potluck (true story)?

Part confession and part survival guide, The Skeptical Vegan explains how simple it really is to be vegan, covering topics from food and nutrition to social challenges and lifestyle. Snarky, witty, and opinionated to a fault, Lindstrom speaks as a male vegan, contesting the notion that “real men” should only eat meat. With twenty original “veganized” recipes including portobello steaks, carrot hot dogs, tofu wings, “meaty” chili, and cauliflower bites (which helped him shed thirty pounds), Lindstrom demonstrates how to take control of your diet while still eating “meatily” and taking into account the ethical considerations of living a better life for the animals, the environment, and yourself.

The Skeptical Vegan is a fantastic starting out point for those looking to improve their physical, spiritual, and emotional health."
—Steve-O, Jackass

—Matthew Modine, Actor, Birdy, Full Metal Jacket, Stranger Things

"Eric's journey to veganism is an inspiring read. But it's his smart-ass sense of humor and relatable storytelling that makes this book tough to put down."
—Richard Marx, singer, songwriter, musician

"Anyone who has ever wondered about veganism or who thinks it's impossible to go from complete carnivore to total vegan in one day will thoroughly enjoy The Skeptical Vegan. Part memoir, part vegan guide, . . . Lindstrom's illuminating tale tells of how a hilarious guy who used to think vegans were a bunch of inscrutable hippies made the journey via the express bus and never looked back (except at first). A funny and page-turning read!"
—Sherry Colb, author of Mind If I Order the Cheeseburger? And Other Questions People Ask Vegans

"With one part fact, one part inspiration, and two parts humor, Eric covers all the bases of transitioning to veganism in this guide. The Skeptical Vegan is bound to be a helpful resource for even the most cynical of potential vegans. He is an expert at making the reader feel like a welcome friend and veganism like the approachable, life-changing journey that it is."
—Kristy Turner, chef and author of But I Could Never Go Vegan!

"The Skeptical Vegan is so funny, you won't even notice it's changed your life until after that happens. Reading it was like getting a massage: great until it ended, and it made me mad that it didn't last longer."
— Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan and director of Main Street Vegan Academy

"If Dave Barry and Erma Bombeck had a son, and he wrote a book about going from wing-devouring omnivore to vegan overnight, this would be the book. With equals parts sarcasm, honesty, and humor, Eric chronicles how he improved his life by changing his diet. What began as a bet, became a full-fledged commitment new, ethical, and compassionate way of life. . . . If you are already vegan, you will find yourself nodding your head as you read, and occasionally shouting 'YES!' and laughing at the jokes only vegans will understand. . . . Eric proves that even the most die-hard meat eater can become vegan and love every minute of it."
—Michael Suchman, co-founder of VeganMos.com and co-author of NYC Vegan

"Striking just the right tone, The Skeptical Vegan inspires without evangelizing, informs without moralizing, and never forgets who the audience is. You'll think Eric was inside your head when he wrote this book because he asks every question you've ever had—and provides helpful answers to every one."
—Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge and The Joy of Vegan Baking

""Wit and wisdom from a down-to-earth dude, in a book that should be on the tip of your tongue every time a friend says, "So what's this vegan thing all about?" Not only is Lindstrom's refreshing voice relatable to current vegans, but it is accessible and welcoming to those who might be veg-curious, or dare I say, skeptical. An absolute delight!"
—Brian L. Patton, vegan chef and author of The Sexy Vegan Cookbook (thesexyvegan.com)
