recipes for relationships


Dating Vegans is for everyone in a relationship vegan-with-a-nonvegan or anyone who has a vegan friend. Anne Dinshah boldly tackles social issues with stories from real people, insights, and recipes. Better than a romance novel whisking readers away to fantasy, this book is a catalyst for reevaluating interactions. It’s all in a format designed to be easily read a bit at a time anywhere: in a park, on a train, at the beach, or waiting for a date. Or you can read the whole book as a one-night stand!

“You owe it to yourself to get this book. And you owe it to Anne, who tirelessly dated countless nonvegan men and interrogated them to bring you this comprehensive report on the intersection of love, ethics, and food. Dating Vegans is for everyone who has dated a vegan or a nonvegan, or who might someday consider dating another human being of any kind.” ~Vance Lehmkuhl, Philadelphia Daily News “V for Veg” columnist

“I loved the concept and I love the book. It combines two of life’s great adventures: exploring vegan food and exploring new relationships. Tasteful in every sense of the word, yet with a dash of mischievousness, this book has something for everyone with an open mind and an open heart.” ~Jonathan Balcombe, author of Pleasurable Kingdom and The Exultant Ark
