"The Vegan Way" with Alumna Jackie Day (MDR '08)
January 11, 2018 | Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution alumna Jackie Day (MDR '08) has published her first book, "The Vegan Way: 21 Days to a Happier, Healthier Plant-Based Lifestyle That Will Transform Your Home, Your Diet and You."
From "The Vegan Way" press release:
The highly anticipated lifestyle book went to auction, landing at Macmillan, one of the "Big 5," in a deal negotiated by New York's Folio Literary Management. The Vegan Way provides easy steps, and incentive, to transition to a plant-based way of living in a fun and affordable way.
In a 21 day plan that emphasizes three core reasons for going vegan—being as healthy as you can be, being compassionate to animals, and protecting our environment—Day provides inspiration along with a specific goal to achieve each day with all of the support you need to accomplish it. It might be something as simple as switching out your coffee creamer for almond milk or as daunting as kicking the dairy cheese habit.
The Vegan Way is exceptionally beautiful, with Day's photography and recipes sprinkled throughout, coupled with all the compelling reasons why now – more than ever - is the perfect time to transition to a healthy plant-based lifestyle. Day includes tips and advice for everything from cruelty-free clothing and cosmetics, to vegan-friendly travel and entertainment, in a highly engaging and friendly way.
Big Bang Theory's Mayim Bialik, Academy Award-Winning Director James Cameron, Moby and Pamela Anderson have enthusiastically praised the work, as have literary trade magazines, and other media outlets. The Vegan Way is available in bookstores and libraries nationwide.
