Fuel Your Journey: Books, Films, and Blogs on Vegan Topics

April 17, 2024

Whether you’re just starting out or have made a longer commitment to dietary change, it’s always good to keep learning. Getting more details on issues related to plant-based eating can help cement your resolve to continue down that pathway. It may also help in answering questions from friends and family. Facts are important — and they are on our side.

Throughout the year, CAA offers regular opportunities to learn about the impact of diet on nonhuman animals. This includes tours of sanctuaries, petition campaigns, and outreach events. We also periodically sponsor events that promote the health benefits of a plant-based diet such as our recent talk by Dr. Greger. He spoke about his book How Not to Age, which details the health benefits of a whole foods plant-based diet.

Another area where CAA provides information is on the environmental issues related to plant-based eating. We hope you caught our Documentary and Social Action Night on April 14. Or perhaps you were able to check out our booth at the Eden Prairie Eco Expo on April 20. Stay tuned for more throughout the year.

Luckily, there are also lots of books and films out there that can provide the information you seek, so that the learning can always continue. A quick internet search will bring you to lots of them. We also have other recommendations in the Resources section of our website. Below are some films, blogs, and books suggested by our community. We hope you will find them helpful in your journey.
