Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ellen beautifully tackles this important subject and gives vegans in divided kitchens a healthy and helpful boost. The practical strategies will help create harmony in mixed households, and the recipes lead the way to tasty reconciliations." --Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, author and creator of The 30-Day Vegan Challenge

This book is a compilation of Ellen's wit and wisdom on how vegans can coexist with nonvegans in their kitchen. What I love about it is that it doesn't preach. It entices. It will help you prepare vegan meals so tempting, irresistible,and delicious that friends and relatives within smelling range of the kitchen might just dissolve the mixed marriage contract and maybe, just maybe, go vegan once and for all. But if your kitchen partners aren't ready to make the plunge,the recipes here lend themselves to mixing and matching in even the most complicated culinary situations. If you live in a divided kitchen, read on. --Neal Barnard, MD, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

"If Ellen Jaffe Jones weren't a gifted athlete,author, and culinary wonder, she could be a marriage counselor. This book is chock-full of practical, real-world advice for every vegetarian who loves an omnivore (or a whole family of them)! And these recipes are sure to lure any meat-and-potatoes fan out of the drive-thru and home for dinner." --Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan

About the Author

Ellen Jaffe Jones is "THE VEG COACH," aka "The Broccoli Rep." Because as she says, "Who else IS the broccoli rep?" She is an inspiring motivational speaker, personal trainer, running coach, author, and trained instructor of healthy cooking classes designed by respected doctors and registered dietitians.

Ellen was a popular award-winning TV investigative reporter and anchor for 18 years in Miami and St. Louis (2 Emmys, National Press Club Award-Consumer Reporting). Many have sought her expertise in modeling a healthy lifestyle. She became known as the "Earth Mother in a Suit" when she left TV and became a successful financial consultant at Smith Barney for 5 years. Combining both backgrounds, she wrote Eat Vegan on $4 a Day after seeing too many news stories saying eating healthfully was impossible on a budget. She wrote Kitchen Divided after hearing from audiences how many lived in and struggled with "split kitchens" and "mixed marriages."

Ellen is nationally certified as a personal trainer (Aerobics & Fitness Association of America) and a certified running coach (Road Runners Club of America). She is currently 3rd in State (FL) in her age group for the 200, 400 & 1500 meter sprints, 4th in the 100 meters. Her 100 meter times are seconds slower than NCAA college girls. The publisher of Running Journal says it is rare for anyone with her sprint times to have ever finished a marathon. 
Ellen began running and eating a plant-based diet 32 years ago when she almost died of a colon blockage. Her mom, aunt and both sisters got breast cancer and most other diseases as well. Her family became part of the original breast cancer gene studies. Ellen's sole motivation is to help organizations she hopes will improve health, the environment and create a more humane world for her three daughters and their generation. 

Her gifted public speaking ability, humor, easy tips, and motivational ideas make her an inspirational keynote speaker.

More About the Author

Ellen Jaffe Jones spent 18 years in television news as an investigative reporter and anchor and eaten a vegan diet for most of the past 34 years. She has won the highest awards in broadcasting, including two Emmys and 1st Place for the National Press Club's Consumer Reporting Award. After leaving television, she earned high returns for her clients as a financial consultant at Smith Barney, where she was dedicated to socially responsible investing. She is a certified personal trainer and running coach. After a New York Times reporter wrote how her marathon time improved greatly after vegan coaching from Ellen, Ellen now coaches clients all over the globe in vegan and athletic pursuits via Skype and Facetime.

As the only healthy person in her immediate family, Ellen's passion is helping others avoid the pain and suffering she's witnessed since early childhood. Her mother, aunt, and both sisters had breast cancer. After nearly dying from a colon blockage at age twenty-eight, Ellen was told by her doctors that she needed to do things differently to avoid her family's fate.

Ellen is currently 7th in the US in her age group (National Senior Games '13) in the 100 meters, 10th in the 400, 16th in the 200, and 19th in the 100 meters. 3rd in State (FL) in the 200, 400 and 1500 meters, 4th in State in the 100 meters. She had to finish in the top 3 locally, then the top 4 in State to qualify for Nationals. Her 100 meter times are :06 slower than NCAA girls' personal records listed in the 2012 University of Southern California Track & Field Media Guide. She has currently placed in 65 5K or longer races for her age group since '06 including 4 Senior Grand Masters awards. She has finished 2 marathons (5th oldest female at '10 Palm Beaches Marathon), 6 half marathons, placing in one of those. It is rare for anyone with her sprint times to have ever finished a marathon. She reports plenty of energy and easy recovery on a plant-based diet, even though many tell her at races that running vegan is impossible/difficult.

The media have reported on the significant weight loss (up to 120 pounds) and improved health that Ellen's students have experienced after taking her cooking classes affiliated with The Cancer Project, part of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a national nonprofit. As a trained cooking instructor, Ellen taught as many as 2 cooking classes a day, 5 days a week during her 6 years with The Cancer Project. The media have called Ellen's life "an experiment to beat the odds."

Ellen races frequently...once placing 1st in her age group in a 5K race in Bradenton, FL, then 6th in age group the next day in a half marathon...just to show you get plenty of calories, energy, calcium, protein and anything else you need to do all this. Recently she raced 5 weekends in a row. One of them, the marathon in Celebration, FL, followed by a weekend of the local Senior Games where she was the overall female finisher in the 5K, then went on to place first in AG in the 50, 100, 400, 800 &1500 meters.

Ellen is certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America as a personal trainer, and by Road Runners Club of America as a running coach. Ellen's weekly VegCoach.com blog column, "Feasting on Fitness," and her monthly column, "Running Fitness," appears in the Running Journal. She is the "Veg Koach" on the social media health site, "Kurriosity." Her "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day" Facebook page has 35,000 fans and growing. Her weekly radio show, "Veg Vixen" airs on 1700AM in Bradenton Beach, FL and is broadcast live streaming on www.annamariaislandradio.com. She teaches cooking classes at the Anna Maria Island Community Center.

Ellen wrote "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day" after watching too many news stories that said food stamp recipients could only afford Twinkies and mac & cheese. She wrote "Kitchen Divided-Vegan Dishes for Semi-Vegan Households" after asking her audiences, "How many of you live in mixed marriages," and hearing many groans. "Paleo Vegan," currently in pre-sales, is selling more copies than any other her publisher has ever had in 40 years.

Love this book as much as I loved Eat Vegan on $4 a Day. The recipes in this book are all very easy to make as well as easily customizable, (perfect for picky health conscious eaters). We recently made the Quinoa Paella which was delicious and very easy, we already had all of the ingredients needed on hand (you can make almost everything with normal ingredients that most people keep on hand, this means no expensive trips to the health food store required). One of the biggest complaints I hear about eating a specialized diet is how difficult it is when you are preparing food for a family or if your child or spouse is vegan and you are not. I am not vegan but I try to eat clean and stay away from foods that increase inflammation, this book is also great for people who just want quick easy and HEALTHY meals. Using this book you don't have to worry about which recipe to pick because all of them are healthy and filling. We added chicken and shrimp to our Paella but it would have been great without it as well. Much like her previous book, her introduction offers insightful helpful advice, and information with a little bit of humor to keep it interesting. Worth every penny!

Kitchen Divided is a must-have cookbook for plant-based people living with family members/ roommates who may not be vegan. With super yummy recipes like "Quiche Your Troubles Good-Bye," "Mushrooms and Lentils in Phyllo," and "Quinoa Paella," Ellen Jaffe Jones creates delicious meal ideas that work for any occasion. Along with the regular breakfast, lunch and dinner categories, I love that Kitchen Divided also suggests specific recipes that contain faux meat and dairy, hearty recipes that omnivores already expect to be meatless, and recipes for flex dishes. Thumbs up for this cookbook!

We purchased Ellen's "Eat Vegan on $4 a Day" and loved it, so buying "Kitchen Divided" was a logical decision for us, one we are glad we made. All the meals are very good but many are exquisite. Just today we experienced tofu pad thai and it was truly amazing. The dishes are easy to make and are a treat to eat. Do yourself a favor and get this book. You will love it!
