I haven't had the opportunity to read Lindsay Nixon's first book, Happy Herbivore Cookbook, so I can't make any comparisons. After reading this one, however, I will most likely treat myself to the first book as well.

Lindsay starts off by explaining why she has chosen to eat a vegan diet...health, impact on the environment, animal compassion, cost, etc. She also discusses the harmful traits of oils. I am in total agreement with all of these great reasons to stay away from animals and fats. Personally I don't think I have the willpower to go totally vegan, but with books like this, I hope to at least incorporate vegan cooking into my diet as often as possible.

Lindsay next goes over her basic shopping list of things you should have in your pantry, refrigerator, freezer, and spice cabinet. With these items, you can make most of her dishes. She also points out that most of these items can be bought at your typical grocery store, with an occasional ingredient necessitating a trip to your local health food/whole foods store. The list is pretty basic with items most of us would already have in our cupboards with the exception of maybe quinoa, chickpea flour, tofu, and vital wheat gluten. That is about as exotic as it gets, so you will find that her recipes are quick and call for simple ingredients.

Lindsay next gives you some very basic suggestions for preparations and some "code" emblems that will identify each recipe as F (fat free), 1 (single serving), G (gluten free), $ (budget), and so forth. A handy tool.

Before each recipe, Lindsay offers a little side note or suggestion. Most, but not all, recipes have colored photos of the finished product.

I've been vegan for 1.5 years, and this is my second Happy Herbivore cookbook...and may be my all-time favorite cookbook.

These recipes truly are for everyday meals. I work full-time and am very busy, so I rarely have the time or motivation to cook elaborate meals after work. These recipes are a godsend. I can make most of them in less than 10 minutes; the longest took 30. And for most of the recipes, I have the ingredients on hand so don't have to buy anything additional. When I do have to buy ingredients, they were always easy to find at my local grocery store and would usually cost me less than $5.

And these fat-free and low-fat recipes also helped me to maintain my 30+ pound weight loss. To maintain my weight loss, I eat veggies, whole grains, and protein (legumes or soy) at every meal. I can make endless meals of this combination using these recipes.

In addition to being quick and easy to make, using everyday ingredients I had on hand or were inexpensive to buy, and helping me stay slim, these recipes are delicious! When I first started making Lindsay's recipes, I was skeptical whether fat-free (the recipes have no added fat, like oils) could be good. Now, I'm a true believer. I use Lindsay's fat-free cooking techniques all the time, but I never feel like I'm dieting or restricting what I eat because everything is so good. I've made some of these recipes every single week because I love them so much.

The recipes I've made the most are

Miso Gravy. If I need more greens or grains in my day, I whip up some of this gravy in about three minutes and pour it over steamed kale or quinoa, or make a bowl of steamed greens, brown rice, and either beans or tofu and pour this on. It's one of the best all-purpose gravies I've tried.
Tofu Fries.

I'm not vegan and don't usually like low-fat, healthy food. But thanks to my wife cooking from this cookbook and Lindsay's first cookbook, I've been able to lose some weight while enjoying the food. My cholesterol has also dropped. While I don't know the names of specific recipes, my wife cooks from these two cookbooks every single day, and I always look forward to the meals.

Lindsay Nixon gets it. She gets what it's like to be a working person who doesn't want to spend an hour just to prepare what it will take another hour to cook. She gets that I don't work for "pocket change" and so she makes her recipes economical. She gets that we not only need inexpensive and quick, but nutritious, extremely low or non fat, and easy. She just gets it all. Her adventurous and kind spirit are shown throughout her books. From big names in the culinary and medical world to little names like mine, Lindsay has won the hearts and taste buds of all who she touches. Take a bite and you'll agree.

Format: Paperback
As a vegetarian I am always looking forward to healthy recipes that are plant based. Both lowfat AND low calorie. I was disappointed by the lack of completely healty recipes and the addition of high caloric ones. The French Toast recipe alone has 61.5 grams of sugar per serving! That is about three times as much as you should consume in an entire day, if you are a woman. I would not recommend this book to those individuals who are trying to trim their fat. Lowfat often times means high in sugar and I believe this book is a prime example of that. There are numerous recipes that have agave in them and although most people think that agave is a healthier alternative to sugar it really may not be. [...] is a great source for information about it. One other small issue I had with the book was the minimal ingredient "recipes". Just a few of them but enough to bother me. The Salsa Chickpea Lettuce wraps contain canned chickpeas, a jar of salsa, some bell peppers, and lettuce. That is not a recipe to me. Rather a suggestion of a few ingredients to layer together. One recipe called "Quick Fruit Sauce" is merely a jar of jam that is processed with some water in a food processor. I am not trying to be super picky here but had I peeked at the book before I had purchased it I am sure I would have passed it up in favor of a healthier one. I believe the review at the top of the front cover, which claims the cookbook's low-fat, plant based dishes promote health in a delectable and wholesome way", is a bit misleading. I really wanted to love this book but I just didn't. If you are not watching your calories and want a cookbook with super simple recipes you might like this one.
