Veganism isn't just a diet, it's a lifestyle. Tracye Lynn McQuirter, MPH, author of By Any Greens Necessary (Lawrence Hill Books, May 2010) embraced veganism in college and has been an admitted satisfied vegan for over 20 years. She wrote By Any Greens Necessary to inspire other women, in particularly African American women, to consider veganism for their health.

African American women have the highest rates of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes and a startling 50 percent of black women are considered obese. By Any Greens Necessary is an honest guide that will change women's perspectives on food, their bodies, and their lives.

McQuirter didn't make the transition to veganism overnight; it was literally a life-changing journey to Kenya and other realizations that led her to drop her previously animal-based diet. With her strong sense of culture and ethics, McQuirter emphasizes that being vegan doesn't mean giving up soul food or sexy curves. Rather, she gives readers the mind-set and recipes to bring food back to its roots in a way that frees one's body of disease-causing waste.

Women of all ethnicities will not only find By Any Greens Necessary a refreshing perspective on veganism, but also a delicious compendium of soul-satisfying vegan recipes, including Afro-Indian Chana Masala ( a scrumptious chickpea dish), Mango Coriander Chutney, and Chocolate Mousse Tart. This revolutionary vegan guide gives women the tools to develop a sense of self and healthy living while realizing that veganism starts in the mind and soul, not with the vegan food.

I grow veggies and I make a veggie stew with fresh green beans, carrots,kale or /and chard,boc choy and onions and bell peppers along with store bought organic potatoes and mushrooms . Sometimes when I have some ready will add okra. I add these things according to how long each one takes to get tender and it is truly the best taste treat I know as each thing stands out on it's on I could eat it everyday!
