Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes
Posted Feb 15 2011 8:00am
Do you want to shift to an entirely new lifestyle? Be a Vegan!
People have this notion that if you go vegan, you become healthy. But this is not entirely true. Think of oil, processed flour or sugar and you become unhealthy. Many newbie vegans do not stock up on whole grains, fresh produce and legumes.
But if you just stick to boiled or steamed veggies and all other bland prepared food, you’ll soon have your vegan burnout.
The 125-recipe cookbook contains low-fat, low calorie, high in fiber and loaded with deliciousness! Once you scan through the pages, you’ll notice that the tone is conversational and not the usual stiff directed tone you will usually find in most conventional cookbooks.
What’s more, you’ll soon find out that the recipes are only 200-400 calories per serving, perfect for those who would want to lose weight. With recipes that are nutritionally-balanced, you’ll even forget that you are eating plant-based food! Surely a cook worth keeping!
I love this cookbook! Everything is easy, fast, yummy, and has minimal dishes! What more could you ask for in a cookbook? I’m used to starting dinner and 2 hours later it’s ready, i am surprised each time how fast it was. I have made dinner out of it for the past 2 weeks and have not been disappointed. I also have veginomicon there are a few things in the new one that are in that one but tweaked, and better. I cannot put this down!
I love this book so much. For some reason I’m the only vegan who doesn’t have the authors other cookbooks but now I have to get them. I love how funny the author is when you’re reading the recipes-we all need that sometimes. I’ve made several recipes so far and have loved them all-especially the dressings. I was surprised at not seeing any baking/dessert recipes, but do we really want low-fat/no-fat desserts? That is what dessert is-an occasional treat. I think the way the categories are split is genius and there are so many innovative recipes. Love love love is all I can say.
