I’m a longtime cookbook buff, and the more I learn about nutrition, the more my cookbook tastes change. I used to go straight for the home cooking sorts – lots of gravy, breading, roasted meats. But as I learned more about nutrition, my reasons for eating in the first place even changed. I was now looking to give health and energy to my family, as well as delicious meals. This means that when I get a book like the Vegan Handbook, I jump right in and start cooking.
Vegan Handbook, published by the Vegetarian Resource Group, has over 200 recipes – stuff good enough to entice even your meat eatiest relatives. Many vegetarian cookbooks are either very complicated, too weird and scary for beginners, or filled with canned, boxed, and processed ingredients. (After all, even Fritos are vegetarian. But are they healthy?) The Vegan Handbook is filled with healthy, simple, delicious recipes and “non-scary” vegetarian fare, if you will. What’s more, the recipes have whole food ingredients like fresh fruit and vegetables; no cans or boxes required!
Most importantly, the recipes produce delicous food. Cooks can choose from a wide variety of styles – everything from Mexican and North African to kid favorites and desserts. Many of the recipes sound so good just at first glance that my initial reaction was, “Yum! That can’t be healthy!” Surprise, surprise – they all are. So grab the Vegan Handbook and get cooking! If you haven’t already, you’re about to fall in love with health food.
Now time to try and win your own copy of the Vegan Handbook!
