The Mindful Vegan shows the way to transforming your relationship with food

Lani Muelrath Shows You How to Fuel Change From the Inside Out

Do you struggle with your weight, compliance with endless diets, and guilt with every slip up? In her insightful, beautifully written book The Mindful Vegan, author Lani Muelrath shares how she got past these inner battles. Like her, you can develop a peaceful, enjoyable relationship with healthy food.

In The Mindful Vegan, Lani shows you step-by-step, day-by-day, how to cultivate mindfulness and use it to quiet your own inner clashes. It’s not so much that you win the battles, as that the battles lose their hold on you as you incorporate mindfulness into your daily life. You don’t need to build will power (or “won’t power,” for cravings and binges) because the entire basis of your relationship with eating is shifted.

Lani lays out a 30 day plan to build mindfulness skills, with the result being significant internal and external changes within a month as you continue your busy life. You start out with one minute of meditation a day, building to thirty minutes a day after a month.

With a chapter for each of the thirty days, Lani gives patient guidance on a wide range of topics relating to mindfulness meditation, being vegan, and developing a comfortable relationship with food. The Mindful Vegan is crammed with practical advice and information that will be useful for both beginners and those who have been

meditating a while. Just as important, the book inspires you with stories, quotes, and a joyful vision of life.

Lani doesn’t hesitate to take on the tough issues of cravings and out-of-control eating. These are rooted in deeper problems, which you must get to the root of to break free. You won’t be successful for long in just white-knuckling your way through resisting that urge for a bag of cookies or chips. As Lani writes in relating her own struggles, “I wanted to live more freely and joyfully around food, not spend my time strategizing how to hide from chocolate. Mindfulness delivered this in a way no other “program” had approached before. It is what allowed me to give up dieting for good and mindfully turn to my natural hunger and fullness signals instead. It is what made it possible for me to open to the pure enjoyment of eating, shed a fair amount of poundage and the inner discomfort surrounding it, and sustain these changes for decades.”

For Lani, mindfulness is a tool to achieve your goals in life, and, just as important, an end in itself, leading to moments of pure joy and appreciation for life. Discover this power with her in The Mindful Vegan.
