‘Big Bang Theory’ actress, Mayim Bialik, has announced her plans to release a second book. After her first successful (and somewhat controversial) book about the attachment style of parenting entitled ‘Beyond the Sling’, the former ‘Blossom’ star is releasing a vegan cookbook.

Bialik, who recently appeared in a PETA campaign encouraging people to ‘Go Vegan!’ understands the difficulty of transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, and wants to share some recipes that are simple and delicious, but also meat and dairy-free.

"I love to cook and I feel like there is so much interest in plant-based eating. I get a lot of non-vegans saying to me, 'If more people cooked like you do, I would actually eat vegan more often," Bialik told UsMagazine.com.

Bialik believes that veganism not only prevents incidents of animal cruelty and promotes a more healthy lifestyle, it has also helped with lifelong conditions, such as allergies.

"I've never had a sinus infection or been on antibiotics since cutting out dairy…I've noticed that my true seasonal allergies are much less severe now that I've cut out dairy which is amazing to me," Bialik shared in the ‘Go Vegan!’ PETA campaign video.
