The Vegan Atlas envisions a plant-based planet, and this site is a resource for lots of easy, tasty recipes, helpful tips, and a growing section on travel and dining for the vegan traveler. As a longtime vegan, I’d like to encourage others to take action! Find some inspiration in Great Reasons to Go Vegan — For the Planet, the Animals, and Yourself.
I’m Nava Atlas, the author of many vegetarian and vegan cookbooks, with hundreds of thousands of books sold over the years. My books went vegan at the same time I did — the early 2000s. Some include …
- Vegetariana (revised and updated)
- Plant-Powered Protein
- 5-Ingredient Vegan
- Plant Power
- Wild About Greens
- Vegan Holiday Kitchen
- Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for all Seasons
… and many others, including revised and updated editions.

My involvement with the vegan movement and women’s issues overlaps with my work as an artist. It’s all under the umbrella of social justice. My work has been shown in numerous galleries and museums and is in a number of public and university collections.
In addition to my involvement in all things vegan, I also create visually driven books. These have include Secret Recipes for the Modern Wife, a darkly humorous look at the gender roles through the lens of a faux 1950s cookbook and The Literary Ladies’ Guide to the Writing Life (2011), which explores the creative processes of twelve classic female authors through their letters, journals, and interviews. The website that grew from this book is Literary Ladies Guide, which strives to be the most comprehensive resource on women’s classic literature.
