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

Author: Michael Ofei & Masa Ofei · Subject: Lifestyle


The Minimalist Vegan by Masa 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, Masa 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.

“Michael and Masa are some of the most passionate minimalist vegans I know. They’re honest, inspiring, down-to-earth and most of all, they care deeply about the ‘why’ as it drives the ‘how’. ” – Leo Babauta, Zen Habits

“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!” – Dana Jenkins, Amazon

“An amazing small book for those just discovering the world of minimalism, and veganism. As well as many things we turn a blind eye to. Loved every moment in reading this.” – Mecca, Amazon
