If you’re after furthering your knowledge of the vegetarian diet then look no further than this list of 11 incredible books every vegetarian should read.

#1 Meat Is for Pussies

[This book is] an incredible read, definitely a can't-put-down book that is as educational as it is funny, reverent, and straight to the point.

Particularly for guys who are vegetarian, who can sometimes be the target of weird comments about real men eating meat, Meat Is For Pussies is a testosterone-y tome written by a guy who has been a total punk rock icon. It has equal appeal for people of any gender and gives you great comebacks to stupid comments people might try and bring you down with, and if you don't laugh out loud while you're reading it, you're not human.

#2 Moosewood Cookbook

This iconic cookbook is an institution adapted from Moosewood Restaurant in Ithaca, NY. It opens with key ingredients and tools to stock a vegetarian kitchen, and the recipes read as a narrative full of practical tips in procurement, methods of preparation, substitutions, and more. Everything a vegetarian needs to know about doing veggie the right way is in this time-tested book.

#3 The Vegetarian Myth

I would highly recommend this book to anybody implementing a vegan or vegetarian diet, not necessarily to convince them to change their ways, but at least to consider that some of their motivations for choosing a plant-based diet may not be so well founded.

#4 Stuff Every Vegetarian Should Know

A pocket-sized handbook which acts as a guide for beginners and “advanced” vegetarians alike. Lists, benefits, shopping tips, and more are included in this neat read. If you are eating solely plant-based foods, you need to do it right. And this book is a great way to begin and follow through.

#5 The China Study

This one caused a large stir when it was first published, in 2005. It became one of the best-selling nutrition books of all times, and is worth a read. There is some place for criticism of the authors’ findings, but that doesn’t negate the importance of this book. Evolution or not, we need to contend with contemporary human existence and its shortcomings.

#6 Eating Animals

I am a sucker for anything Foer writes, and this is yet another classic example of his style. You either love it or hate it. Foer wrote this book as a meditation on whether or not his newborn baby should eat meat, and on why it is that we eat meat. Like I said, Foer’s style is known for its polarizing effect, but it is still a fascinating read, nonetheless.

#8 In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto

Micheal Pollan theory goes a little something like this: eat food, not too much, mostly plants. This book was one of the first in the industry to draw a connection between industrialized food and the effect it has on our environment. The book presents many facts as to why dietary fat is linked to chronic illness.
