The Minimalist Vegan: A Simple Manifesto To Live With Less Stuff And More Compassion

The Minimalist Vegan Book

As someone who is on the minimalist path myself, it was great to read a book that really aligned with my goals and lifestyle. Apart from the wealth of information contained in The Minimalist Vegan: A Simple Manifesto On Why To Live With Less Stuff And More Compassion, the loving and non-judgemental tone of the book really drew me in and made me feel very comfortable the whole way through. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is overwhelmed by too much 'stuff' and wants to invite more peace and simplicity into their life.

The Minimalist Vegan by Maša and Michael Ofei is less of a how-to book, and more of a why-to book. A manifesto on why to live with less stuff and with more compassion. They explore the intersection of minimalism and veganism and all that each complimentary lifestyle has to offer.

They dive deep into conscious living and what it actually means. With chapters on topics such as “The More Virus” and Courageously Simple to The Superior Species and A Plastic World, Maša and Michael cover every aspect to help challenge your way of thinking. Their hope is that by the end of it, you’ll have the thirst and passion to architect your life in a way that brings you purpose and joy each and every day.

They have written this book to be read within a few hours. Yes, even if you’d consider yourself to be a slow reader! Each chapter can be read independently, so you can jump ahead to a section that resonates with you. However, reading the book from start to finish is a great way to build momentum as you manifest your ideas and dive into a more conscious way of living..

After reading this, I’ve been so much more conscious about all of my lifestyle choices. I’m already vegan, but now I’ve been buying less, and generating much less waste. I feel so much closer to myself now that I’m not as focused on material things. Great book, I recommend it to anyone, vegan or not!


A much-needed book in the world! Often these concepts are explored separately but are so inter-twined... this book is a wonderful way to start the year and provides so much inspiration and practical advice. Thank you!


Simple, direct truth. I am not young, and coming to an awareness of the life-long cruelty I've been complicit in, causes me great pain. But I can and will change, as of this very moment. Thank you for opening my eyes to my overwhelming ignorance.



Michael and Maša Ofei are married couple in their 30s striving to live with incredible intentionality. They’re all about good food, animal welfare, minimalism and leaving this planet hopefully better than what they found it. This is their first of many books and they hope to help inspire millions to live with less stuff and more compassion.
