 “Riffing of the famous words of Malcom X, this vegan guide for African­ American women tells ladies how to look their best, ward of health problems, and slim down while keeping their curves. Eighty percent of African ­American women are overweight, putting them at an increased risk for heart disease, strokes, and diabetes. With more than 40 recipes and menus to help you transition to a vegan lifestyle, author Tracye Lynn McQuirter shows the path to changing that statistic. Written for African­ American women but applicable to women of all backgrounds, this book is a must-­read for anyone transitioning away from an omnivorous diet.”
