Vegetarian Times’, November/December 2010
“Offers 125 recipes for low-fat, plant-based dishes that don’t skimp on flavor.”
Vegetarian Living (UK), December 2010
“Jam-packed with mouth-watering vegan recipes that are low in fat and light on calories…[Moskowitz’s] recipes are visual and gastronomic delights, which inspire the reader to try new things and cook outside of their comfort zone, while never underestimating the beauty of the familiar.”
“[Isa Moskowitz is] the queen of the vegans.”
VegNews, February 2011
“From the grand dame of vegan cookbooks, Appetite doesn’t leave you hungry…From salads that satisfy like meals to hearty pasta dishes to every vegetable imaginable, Appetite doesn’t miss a beat…Unlike other diet books, Appetite isn’t about dropping 20 pounds in a weekend; it’s about eating healthfully in a way that can lead to weight loss without resorting to drastic measures—measures which Moskowitz assures are guaranteed to pile pounds right back on.”
“If you're suffering through the fourth day of some weird diet, you might want to pick up a copy of this book and make yourself something good to eat.”
San Francisco Book Review, 1/10/11
Long Island Press, 1/7/11
South Coast Insider, January 2011
BBC Good Food (UK), February 2011
“This is a vegan diet book, but forget your preconceptions and look at the food. Isa is an amazing cook—her recipes are delicious and written for people who want to lose weight, but not their enjoyment of food. She uses spices cleverly to make you forget you’re eating low fat and ups the grain and veg content to keep you satisfied. Isa reworks favorites making them lighter and healthier. Her book is worth buying for the salad dressings alone.”
Washington Post, 1/19/11
Hudson Valley News,
January Magazine (Canada), 12/20/10
“As with previous Moskowitz books, one thing not sacrificed is flavor. She plays with Asian, Mediterranean, Indian and Latin cuisine with her recipes in ways that make you feel like you’re not losing taste by cutting out fat.”
“[Moskowitz] begins with information on vegan nutrition and shares under-400-calorie recipes that are packed with flavor. Those new to a low-fat vegan diet may be surprised by satisfying meals such as OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings, Chipotle Lentil Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries, Mac & Trees (macaroni, cheese, and broccoli), and Chili Verde con Papas. Best-selling author Moskowitz is sure to create demand.”

The Vegan, UK, March 2011
“If you’re aiming to lose weight, or just eat healthily, but still enjoy food, this is the book for you.”
Deseret News, 3/9/11
Portland Oregonian, 3/7/11
“This book is for anyone whose philosophy is that dieting shouldn’t mean restricting yourself to eating small portions of bland vegetables, side salads or relying on diet shakes…Isa shows that, with the right ideas and inspiration, diet food can be quick, imaginative and tasty.”
Bust, April/May 2011
“Bursting with inventive, flavorful techniques for lightening up comfort-food favorites and for making plants pop in new and exciting ways.”
“The perfect book for that picky vegetarian who is determined to eat healthy and maybe even lose some weight.”
“For those in the vegan community who are also health conscious, Moskowitz has delivered the goods on a plate too irresistible to deny. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is the best friend we’re all looking for: she writes in a way we understand, a language that is easily understood and humorous. She is also the cook we want for our healthy lives and families. She gets it. She gets that we don’t want to give up taste and satisfaction for healthy living…From funky hummus creative ideas to ‘OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings,’ from sides to satisfying full entrée ideas, Moskowitz turns your vegan kitchen upside down, shakes out the fat, and replaces it with novel and tasty ideas to keep your mind interested and your tongue happy you tried something new…Vegan or omnivore, you will find something to rave about and savor in Appetite for Reduction.”
Vegetarian Journal, Vol. XXX, no. 3
“Features 125 recipes that are low in calories but rank high for substance and creativity…Helpful hints are found throughout…Gorgeous color photos.”
Taste for Life magazine, August 2011

Also I credit this cookbook with teaching me how to cook tofu. The lettuce wraps with Hoison-mustard tofu recipe taught me an easy technique for cooking tofu that I've been able to incorporate whenever I want tofu. The basic baked tofu recipe also gave me an easy technique for baking tofu that again I've been able to expand upon.
The cookbook also includes a variety of different recipes. You want Thai? Ethiopian? Mexican? Italian? Vietnamese? Peruvian? Caribbean? Indian? Middle eastern? The book has you covered. What if you want traditional American style food? Well the book has that as well.
I have also gone through the book and listed my favorite recipes and things I'd recommend and added a star next to the ones that are probably my top favorites.Read more ›
I adore the nutrition info printed along with every recipe. That's really helpful for me... I don't have to take the author's word that something is healthy or do the math out myself. I can just read through the nutrition info and decide if something fits into my day or not that way.
The cooking/prep times have been spot on for me. 30 minute recipes really take 30 minutes or less. The portion sizes are good. I like that most of the recipes seem to be for smallish batches (actually as much as a small family might eat in a meal) so there's less potential for sabotaging yourself by gorging on leftovers, if you know what I mean.
As always, Moskowitz is an ambassador for the message that vegan food need not be boring, bland, or anything but incredibly delicious. There's a lot of variety and a LOT of flavor in this book. I have yet to run into anything in here that wasn't really delicious.
Some of my favorites so far: Caulipots, Caesar Chavez dressing (and all of the other dressings, but this is the best!), Chickpea Piccata, Masala Tofu, Ye'abesha Gomen.
