promises to be your one source for finding the best tasting, most
nutritious, fast, and simple meatless meals!
Have you ever stood in front of an open refrigerator
door and wondered, So, now what do I eat?
With The Complete Guide to Vegetarian Convenience
Foods in hand, the hunt is over. Whether you are a vegan,
vegetarian or just trying to make your move to a healthier lifestyle,
this book offers a banquet of choices for those who are looking
for convenience without sacrificing taste or health.
This is the first comprehensive guide to more
than a thousand delicious vegetarian, cholesterol-free foods that
require no more preparation than a TV dinner.
The author, Gail Davis, has spent several years
researching the manufacturers of natural foods, and taste testing
the latest, most tantalizing vegetarian convenience foods now available.
As a result, she is a leading authority on manufacturers of natural
foods and their new products. Davis passionately taste tests these
vegetarian convenience foods and reports her findings in The
Complete Guide to Vegetarian Convenience Foods.
In her book, Davis has developed an easy guide
for her readers as they navigate through the listings of convenience
foods. For example, she notes food choices as Fat Free,
Kids Pick, Contains Casein or Caseinate,
Contains Honey, and of course, Authors Favorites.
All the major food categories are covered,
including dairy substitutes, meat and fish alternatives, frozen
meals, desserts, natural sweeteners, sauces, and more. Davis even
includes vegetarian foods for pets. There is an extensive food index,
suppliers index, a glossary of food terms, and a healthy list of
vegetarian resources and web sites. Check out the books contents
for a complete listing of chapters! The first edition of The
Complete Guide to Vegetarian Convenience Food was first
published as So, Now What Do I Eat? (Blue Coyote Press

VEGETARIAN FOOD FOR THOUGHT: QUOTATIONS
At age 30, Gail Davis became acutely aware of
how her lifestyle affected her chances for a long and healthy life
when her father died of lung cancer. Two weeks later Davis quit
her three-pack-a-day smoking habit. Not long after, she began to
change her eating habits. That was fourteen years ago.
Today, Davis is a nutritional consultant, speaker,
author and newspaper columnist who passionately addresses how food
choices affect not only personal health, but also the environment
and animal welfare. She has interviewed and written about many prominent
physicians, scientists, and nutritional experts, and their views
on the relationship between our food choices and their impact on
human health. Davis teamed up with New Jersey physician Robert Baker,
and successfully fought for the passage of legislation concerning
the prevention of breast cancer. The bill requires doctors in New
Jersey to supply patients with a pamphlet describing the connection
between diet and breast cancer.
In addition, Davis has written Vegetarian
Food for Thought: Quotations and Inspirations (NewSage
Press 1999), an inspirational gift book for every vegetarian, and
certainly one that will touch the hearts of even the most dedicated
carnivores! Davis lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico with her feline
companion, Indiana Jones, and canine companion, Cicely Alaska, both
confirmed vegetarians. She can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
