Sarah Kramer's Vegan A Go-Go is so darn cute you might want to just coo over it instead of reading it. This would be a mistake, because it is a lifesaver! It's full of travel tips, cute photos, and Sarah's classic recipes.
Traveling when you're vegan can be very difficult. Often, you're in a place you don't know, and you don't always know where you can eat (unless you get a plain salad, yuck!). Sarah makes it easy by giving travel tips for tons of situations and destinations, and so many of her recipes are quick and easy and sometimes things you can cobble together on the fly.
Sarah's saved my sanity years ago. I went to my then boyfriend's house for thanksgiving. It's in another state. His family didn't approve of or understand my vegan ways, and there was little to nothing I could eat. At that time, I traveled with How It All Vegan, and I could make some food at home, and her cute photos and stories helped me keep my good humor. Now I can have that same traveling comfort in a pocket sized portion! :>
This is the tiniest Kramer book, but it's also the sweetest. The color photos, icons, places for notes.... All I can say is Sarah, thank you for being you and making it that much easier for the rest of us vegans to be who we are.
P.S. If you haven't bought one of Sarah's previous books (and Tayna for the first two) then Sarah's recipes are quick, easy, can be made with ingredients on hand, and are nutritious. This book is a lot like its author... it's cute, but it has substance!

With Kramers latest book,Vegan a Go-Go, we connect with the punk princess of meatlessness once again. This new set of recipes, is collected into a mini-tome so tiny it's no bigger than a change purse. And for practical purpose, because as a survival manual for vegans on the road, it's designed to be easily tucked into a purse, suitcase, car glove compartment, or even a passport folder. We love the spunky graphic look to it. ―City Food(Vancouver) (City Food20081029)
