Veganism the animal-free diet is here to stay. And Dreena Burton, author of the bestselling The "Everyday Vegan," is here to tell you how the decision to go green doesn t mean you have to sacrifice nutrition or flavor, and in fact will make you and your family feel healthier and more alive.

Dreena and her husband became parents three years ago, and their decision to raise their daughter as a vegan from birth has made the need for an animal-free diet that is fully nutritional all the more crucial. But as Dreena demonstrates in Vive "le Vegan ," there's no need to panic: there are simple methods and delectable ingredients you can use that will allow you whether you re single or have a family to become vegan without having to be a rocket scientist.

Hearty Roasted Tomato Stew
Carrot-Shitake Spring Rolls
Chipotle Veggie Bean Burritos
Morrocan Chickpea Patties
