Respondents also said that they have been inspired to delve into meatless cuisine by the abundance of yummy vegan recipes that are available.

Speaking of yummy vegan recipes, the venerable Good Housekeeping magazine has pretty much cemented vegans’ place in the mainstream by publishing a vegan cookbook, Simple Vegan!, that will be released in March of next year. Good Housekeeping has previously published several vegetarian cookbooks, including this year’s Family Vegetarian Cooking, but the new book marks its first collection of totally vegan fare.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pre-ordering my copy today. Nobody’s going to accuse me of being a bad housekeeper!
