Knowledge is power, right? If you are ready to learn more about a vegan lifestyle, I have compiled a few educational books and videos that will help to jumpstart your understanding of the many elements of veganism. Educating myself has been a huge part of my journey, and I must say it is addictive. Once you begin to open your eyes and heart to new ideas it is hard to go back. I encourage you to empower yourself through education as I did. And believe me, my education is just beginning too!
The following list of resources is just a sampling of what is available on the internet and at the bookstore. There are thousands of wonderful resources that you can explore, and this list is just a start.
