Editorial Reviews


VegNews, December 2010
“Favorite Vegan MD”
Library Journal, 5/21/10
“A terrific lifestyle guide for anyone wishing to lose weight, cut cholesterol, and reverse the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. After they detail the science behind a low-fat vegan diet, the authors include tons of simple, healthful breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes for a variety of palates…Recipes are short and contain detailed information on calories, saturated fat, and vitamins and minerals…A good complement to Donna Klein’s Vegan Italiano and The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, this is recommended for vegetarians and those looking to expand their diabetic cookbook collection.”

Blogcritics.org , 6/17/10
“This man is seriously into nutrition. But what about taste? Barnard and Webb’s recipes are especially appealing to those who are not fans of TVP (texturized vegetable protein)…The first fifty pages of The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook serve as a primer on vegan cooking, the health-benefits of a vegan diet, and nutrition…For the appetizer lover, there are plenty of spreads and finger foods…Ethnic dishes, main dishes, soups, desserts—there’s plenty to tempt you…Bottom Line: Would I buy The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook? With vegetarians and vegans in my family, I need it on my kitchen bookshelf, but—let’s face it—there are plenty of offerings that everyone, regardless of diet, can enjoy.”
VegNews, July/Aug 2010
“For those just getting started on a plant-based diet, Neal Barnard, MD, and Robyn Webb offer the ultimate start-up guide…Eye-opening facts help give those on the fence a final push, and first-hand testimonials are sure to inspire change…All dishes are simple, low fat, and yummy…Once you’re on the road to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, it’s the perfect volume to pass on to a friend.”
Bergen Record, 6/28/10
“Showcase[s] the merits of a vegan diet. Most dishes are simple, many with fewer than 10 ingredients and three steps, making it ideal for novices.”
Bookviews, July 2010
“There’s plenty of diversity among the recipes that include green chile and oyster mushroom crepes, sweet potato soup, and even snacks. All recipes are low in fat. If you’re new to the vegan lifestyle, this book will appear intriguing.”
Treehugger.com (discussing the Sun Dried Tomato Spread pg 162), 6/30/10
“This sun-dried tomato spread is so creamy, people might think it has mayonnaise in it, but the secret is silken tofu…This is a great spread to have on hand. It’s delicious as a base for a grilled vegetable sandwich, or you can spread it on a bagel instead of cream cheese and it’s quite satisfying.”
Tucson Citizen, 7/14/10
“[Barnard’s] 125 recipes stress convenience, versatility, and taste…Whether your goal is take the plunge and go vegan or you just want to eliminate some meats from your diet and substitute more healthy alternatives, this cookbook will be helpful.”
San Francisco Book Review, 7/12/10
“I can’t help but be thrilled by receiving a good vegan cookbook to review…It’s vegan in every sense of the word, but I love that the emphasis is on eating a well-balanced, whole foods diet, rather than creating poor substitutions of everyone’s meat-filled favorites…Another thing I love about this book is that the author, Neal Barnard, MD, is promoting a vegan diet for scientifically sound reasons—reasons that are thoroughly explained in the first few chapters…Let The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook serve as a reminder to you all that cooking vegan does not have to be a daunting idea!  This book is full of good meal ideas that are healthy, delicious, and remarkably simple to make.”
Foodista.com, 7/12/10
“Make[s] it easier than ever for those willing to take the plunge to assemble healthy, delicious vegan meals…This is a great book for those who aren’t big on tofu or other texturized vegetable protein—Dr. Barnard and Webb focus on vegetables and yummy carbs such as rice or polenta to round out meals. This is a great addition to any cook’s bookshelf, regardless of diet.”
“Features all-occasion recipes that use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort.”
The Hippo, 7/15/10

“A nice place to turn for some general vegan-diet information…The recipes are straightforward and cover a lot of comfort foods…that can help you transition from foods you may be eating to a meat-and-dairy-free lifestyle.”

Sacramento Book Review, 7/23/10
“The science is explained fully in an undeniable way, complete with testimonials, and tips are given to help readers transition…Most [recipes] are simple and quick to make, containing ingredients found in any grocery store.  The dishes themselves sound delicious; any foodie inclined toward eating healthy will surely find themselves drooling in anticipation…This one is definitely recommended.”

“Talk of the Town” (WTVF), 7/26/10
“How can any dish taste great without cheese? You would be surprised and delighted with the offerings from authors Barnard and Webb.”
HealthyVoyager.com, 8/2/10
“I was over the moon when I received [Dr. Barnard’s] cookbook. Teamed up with nutritionist Robyn Webb, these 2 knock it out of the park! What is great about this cookbook is that it isn’t just recipes. It explains the benefits of a plant based diet as well as covering how the recipes in the book will assist you in reaching optimal health…Just looking at the ingredients and the variety of dishes is enough to get your salivary glands going…You can’t go wrong with The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook!”

Midwest Book Review, August 2010
“Any library strong in vegan cookbooks must have [this]…It packs in over a hundred easy recipes and pairs them with color photos and explanations from a noted physician who explains the basics of a vegan diet and its health benefits. The dishes are based on ordinary ingredients and take no time…Any vegan collections must add this!”

Curled Up With A Good Book, September 2010
“Deliver[s] pages and pages of vegan recipes…Most of them are a snap to make…All of them are yummy enough that I’d gladly eat them every day…For those who are curious about a vegan diet but aren’t ready to go at it full tilt, this is the book to start with…For those who want to improve their health, Barnard’s advice and information is invaluable.”
Vegetarians in Paradise
“Barnard presents information on the efficacy of a vegan diet that is grounded on extensive research…An excellent guidebook for anyone embarking on a journey to a healthier lifestyle.”
Metapsychology Online Reviews, 3/31/11
“A great addition to a vegan's cookbook collection…[It] calls for very few specialized vegan ingredients…making the dietary changes less of a strenuous job for the novice or aspiring vegan…Definitely a good source for vegan neophytes, as well as for lifelong vegans, who can also probably use it as an instrument to expand their recipe repertoire.”

Format: Paperback
It's a no-brainer: Wanna be healthy? Go Vegan! But the truth is, it's very easy to eat an unhealthful vegan diet: Just load up on refined flour, sugar, oils, and heavily processed foods, and you'll be on the fast track to becoming an unhealthy vegan. Sadly, it's a mistake newbie vegans often make. Instead of embracing whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes, many seek to replace their unhealthful omnivorous diets with vegan versions of their favorite junk foods.

Now don't get me wrong: I'm not saying that there isn't a time and place for veggie burgers, non-dairy milk beverages, yogurt, cheese, and ice cream. (Heaven knows I LOVE my coconut milk ice cream!) But to eat more healthfully, we need to choose whole, organic fruits, vegetables, legumes, and grains as the centerpiece of our diets. And having a collection of plant-based recipes that offer us simple and delicious ways to prepare these foods is essential.

When I heard about Dr. Neal Barnard's latest book, The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook: 125 Easy and Delicious Recipes to Jump-Start Weight Loss and Help You Feel Great, it sounded like just the kind of book to help anyone quickly learn to achieve and maintain vibrant health through sound nutrition. Turn to the very first page of the book, and you'll read, "This book holds the culinary secrets to lifelong health." It's a promise that was fulfilled in the pages that followed.

The bulk of the book contains simple recipes for eating healthfully and enjoying every bite. But it also includes many thoughtful tools that will help you revolutionize your kitchen and your life, easily and effortlessly. You'll learn the science behind making health-promoting food choices and how to make your foods fit your health and weight-loss goals.

Ten months ago I started a low cholesterol diet. I dropped all meat except for fish. I lost 17 pounds in three months. My A1c was better along with my blood pressure and cholesterol. Then I saw Dr. Barnard on PBS. I bought his book and dropped fish from my diet, too. I lowered the amount of olive oil I use and followed his recommendations. As of last week, I have lost 24 pounds. I am always satisfied and full. My blood pressure is 122/60, my A1c is 6.5 and my cholesterol is great. My doctor told me if she did a "patient of the year", my picture would be on her wall. I have energy and I look so much better - I'm told this all the time now. He changed my life - he actually saved my life. Thank you Dr. Barnard and Amazon, too!

I've used the McDugall plan for 5 years. This author is very similar in terms of do's and don'ts but gives a far more understandable rationale as to why certain techniques work. Fat causes diabetes-- not sugar. It is nicely explained and easy to understand. If you want to take charge of your life, feel better about yourself, reverse diabetes and heart disease, this is the book for you. Be prepared for criticism from the so called "people who are concerned." But adopt the practices in this book and you will feel better, and I'm convinced add 10 years to your life.

Heart disease runs in my family, but you can change your numbers: bp & lipid numbers drastically and rapidly if you choose. I'm in a pair of 32 skinny jeans formerly 36 as I tap this out and have lost over 30 pounds.

Follow the script and you can too. No expensive meal packets to buy, just lots of good honest thinking, techniques that work.

This book helps make the vegan diet less confusing to the average American and presents a lovely collection of simple recipes. The ones I've tried have been delicious - Edamame & Quinoa Salad is my favorite so far. Best of all, I can make all these recipes with ingredients I can find in my small town! I highly recommend this book to new vegans, but the recipes make it a worthwhile addition to anyone's collection.

This review is for the Kindle version of this book. I became aware of this book when it was advertised on TV, where they showed it chock full of beautiful color photos of the food, which I find very useful in a cookbook when trying to decide what to prepare and how to present it. Since the table of contents of this book is listed by meal rather than dish type (i.e. soups, salads, pastas, etc.) and was not very helpful to me, I also looked at the index which I was able to preview on Amazon's listing of the hard copy version of the book. The index showed me that there were some great recipes for various type of dishes. So based on the great photos I saw on the TV presentation and the index I had found for the hard copy version, I bought the Kindle version, which is my medium of choice these days. Unfortunately, the Kindle version does not contain any of the photographs, and the index is not hyper-linked, so I am unable to locate anything I want. For some reason, the search function alone did not work well for this Kindle book, so I could not easily find most of the things I looked for; I had to use the index to look up specific dish names and then type them into the search function and I still needed to make several passes in order to locate anything. Also, for some reason, the layout of the book appears as if it was put together quickly without any thought. Perhaps the publisher removed the photos and cobbled everything together without reformatting it. I'm going to get the hard copy format and hope that it is as I had originally been led to believe, as the actual content looks great, but needs more work to be presentable for easy access as a reference in Kindle format.
