about

Finding balance in life is a goal many of us strive to achieve. Whether it's through a healthy diet, exercise regimen, state of mind, relationship, or other activity (or all of the above), we spend our days trying to be, and become, our best selves.

But what happens when all that focus starts to dominate our lives? When our desire for "perfect health" trumps everything else, perhaps without us even realizing it? What happens when our solution starts becoming the problem?

These are questions that author and popular blogger Jordan Younger faced when she decided that her extreme, plant-based lifestyle just wasn't working in favor of her health anymore--and questions that you may be facing too.

In Breaking Vegan, Jordan reveals how obsessive "healthy" dieting eventually led her to a diagnosis of orthorexia, or a focus on healthy food that involves other emotional factors and ultimately becomes dysfunctional, even dangerous. In candid detail, Jordan shares what it was like to leave veganism, the downfall of her desire to achieve nutritional perfection, and how she ultimately found her way to recovery. In addition to this, Jordan outlines an "anti-diet," whole-foods-based eating plan featuring more than 25 recipes to help inspire others to find similar balance in their own lives.

Breaking Vegan is about tolerance and forgiveness. And ultimately, forging one's own path toward happiness.

Jordan Younger runs the blog The Balanced Blonde (formerly The Blonde Vegan, or TBV) and is a student at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, where she is studying to become a health coach. Jordan began her blog in June 2013 to share her healthy vegan recipes and colorful food photos. The blog quickly became popular, but a year late...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money I picked this book up thinking that she was going to discuss what part of veganism made her sick....turns out she was on a juicing only "diet" and extremely restricting her calories. Is it any wonder she got sick? She was malnourished. I've done some research on veganism before and have never heard anyone say that they can only eat a certain amount of calories. Sounds like she is using "veganism made me sick" for publicity. Don't waste your money. This is essentially the story.
