Robin Quivers, longtime radio sidekick to shock job Howard Stern, is getting ready to release her healthy living tell-all next month titled "The Vegucation of Robin: How Real Food Saved My Life."
The 60-year-old has credited her vegan diet, a shift she made in 2007, with helping her lose more than 70 pounds in six months.
“My life totally changed, and now I have this amazing amount of energy,” Quivers told People magazine in 2010. “Changing my body has given me the ability to do all these amazing things that I never in a million years imagined I could do.”
In a synopsis for the new book, it's clear that Quivers is looking to really inspire people to give veganism a shot, laying bare many of the ailments and image issues that had plagued her for decades and were resolved with the diet.
“On her sometimes rocky, though endearingly hysterical, path to newfound health, Quivers discovered the power of the produce aisle in changing her body and her mindset," the synopsis reads. "By filling up on soul-quenching, cell-loving vegetables instead of damaging animal products and processed foods, Quivers left behind the injuries, aches, and pains that had plagued her for twenty years. Charting her inspiring road to wellness, 'The Vegucation of Robin' describes her transformation inside and out, and, including ninety of her favorite vegan recipes, she encourages readers to join her in putting their health first."
In addition to more than 90 recipes (and we're told, plenty of jokes), "Vegucation" will also include a forward by long-time vegan advocate Russell Simmons. You can preorder before the March 26 shipping date on Amazon here.
