Favorite Quote: “You can't just wear the food chain around your neck like a bauble or necklace. You're part of it and if you keep treating it with disdain, that chain will strangle you.”
― David Duchovny, Holy Cow
What Made Me Love This Book: Despite the quote, I promise you this is a light and funny read.A few months after going vegan I was at a restaurant with my papa and his friend, and I saw a lady with this book on her table, and I asked her about it, turns out she was vegan too! We talked about the book, and she told me that I should have it and she asked me to start a chain and passed it on when I was done reading it.
