Editorial Reviews

Review

Vegan Bite by Bite has some wonderful recipes and an excellent story line that helps people transition to vegetarianism and/or veganism. Marilyn's book is down-to-earth and practical, and yet inspiring.  Some great interviews too!
 
--Will Tuttle


Vegan Bite By Bite is a gem of a book that's heaping with solid nutritional information, irresistible recipes, clearly written instructions, & fascinating interviews.  --Vegetarians in Paradise

There are so many cookbooks out there, but Vegan Bite By Bite really stands out as having it all in one, I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have.

From the Author

I started writing the book and learning the computer at the same time - age 68, and seven years later the book was published!  I'm self-taught as a chef, so learning how to document the recipes was challenging for me since it's my style to use my intuition and spontaneity in the kitchen, (the same way I would play in my imaginary kitchen alley as a child). (See Fantasy Food - About the author on this page)
Being a first time author and writing the book was filled with lots of emotions for me.  My editor would tease me saying "Author kills herself writing health book!" as she described my stress.  Sometimes I felt as if I was being pulled through a knothole, but most of the time I had fun with it.  I loved the magic of the missing pieces of the puzzle showing up, just as they were needed, which consistently indicated to me that the hidden hand behind the screen was orchestrating the book process.
I've heard that publishing a book is similar to the birthing process, as the author anxiously awaits to see if the book is healthy!  I gave myself completely to authoring the book and I wish you, my readers -
"Good Health - Bite by Bite."
 

More About the Author

Marilyn Peterson, born in 1935, has been teaching the transition diet for over 38 years. The chapter "Life is a Bowl of Cherish" from her book Vegan Bite By Bite, entertainingly describes her life journey. She started her career cleaning up at a doctor's seminar and ended up cooking therapeutic meals for the students at the doctor's seminar for years. After that, she spring-boarded to teaching and cooking for more doctors in preventative medicine, as well as cooking for herbalist's seminars.

Word of mouth referrals led Marilyn to cooking for spas, as well as designing personal health programs for celebrities, and clients in the form of meal preparation. Her website www.veganbitebybite.com has a Photo Gallery that is filled with color photographs of dishes she has prepared over the years and many are in her E-book and digital versions of VEGAN BITE BY BITE.

She resides with her husband in Los Angeles, California, where she continues to teach and consult on "How to make the transition to a plant-based diet."

I highly recommend "Vegan Bite By Bite" to anyone struggling with the transition to a vegan or vegetarian diet. It is also an excellent resource for those who have already made the switch and are looking for delicious new cooking ideas or a quick answer to the age old question, "What's for dinner tonight?" As a practicing vegan, Ms. Peterson's book has been a blessing! It is my go-to reference for new recipes and ideas, shopping sources, and cooking techniques. "Vegan Bite By Bite" is easy to read and joyfully answers the who, what, where, why, and how to be vegan. The author's passion for food, health, and life come across in her writing. I anxiously await her next book packed with more delicious recipes!

This is a fabulous book. I am a holistic MD and I am always looking for ways to educate and inspire my patients. There are lots of choices out there when it comes to reading about the vegan diet. But there is none that is so comprehensive or so much fun to read. This book includes scientific information from researchers and doctors. Great recipes. Personal stories from lots of interesting vegans and several doctors. The author's personal story, which will delight and inspire you. More practical information than I have seen in other books. From how to approach making changes in your diet, how to navigate shopping for ingredients and recipes to please your whole family. It is like having your own personal coach to walk you through the steps and encourage you along the way. The references are more extensive than I have seen anywhere. And the author is so witty, you will have fun reading. And this lady walks her talk. This is a one-stop shopping for all you need to know about eating healthfully, and saving the planet and the animals, to boot.

Buy this book - if you are thinking of switching to a vegan diet! I have been a vegetarian since 1970 and have always struggled (off and on) with eliminating dairy products. Since reading Marilyn Peterson's VEGAN BITE BY BITE, my husband and I have successfully transitioned to an all plant based diet. The recipes are so simple to prepare. Our favorite is: "Wendel's Other Love Chocolate Pudding". The book makes such practical sense. Plus her personal story was fascinating. It gave us that 'extra push' to convert to pure vegans SO easily. We are feeling much better as well! Kudos to Marilyn Peterson for her efforts.

I am not a very creative person in the kitchen and I want to spend as little time as possible preparing food.. I have been a vegetarian for over 7 years, and tried to eat raw simple food as much as possible. But to try to make food interesting, tasty, and nutritious for me and my family I have taken a class, tried a lot of recipes from books and online.

Luckily I found this book online a few weeks ago, and have been making recipes from it few times a week. Truly, this book taught me a lot of easy recipes, and it made me feel comfortable in being creative and adventurous in coming up with new recipes as well. The book is easy to read and the color images are a great help! One of my favorite recipes from this book is the mock-(tempeh) tuna.. great to eat with Manna bread! My husband who is not a vegetarian loves this one, and my friends/coworkers who are not vegetarians have said it was delicious. Overall, very happy to have found this book! A must have for vegans or raw foodists!!!

I have been vegan for a long time and currently work part time as a caregiver for the elderly. I dislike preparing meat after 35 years as a vegetarian so when I found Marilyn's recipes I had to try them with my clients. I work for one couple where the wife is vegetarian and the husband is a meat lover. Instead of having to prepare 2 separate meals, I used Vegan Bite-by-Bite's mock meat recipes such as Neatloaf and Hearty Hot Chili. I also used the Neatloaf as a filler in their own family recipe for stuffed green peppers. The wife raved about how delicious the meals were and secretly giggled that her husband didn't know the difference. She said it was the best "meatloaf" she had ever tasted.

The best personal recommendation I can give is that after reviewing this wonderfully engaging book, I plan to purchase a copy. This book is for those who want to transition to a vegan diet, including those like myself who have been vegetarian and interested in the vegan lifestyle for a long time. I especially enjoyed reading Chapter 3, "Truth or Consequences: Meat ain't neat and dairy is scary". The style is conversational, but includes many references from nutritionists and their writings, including the China Study, which, according to the title of the book by the same name, is "the Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted and the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss and Long-Term Health". In addition, there is advice about what to do and say when traveling and ordering in a restaurant, such as calling ahead with questions - something so simple and clearly helpful.

The recipes are included in one chapter (Chapter 6), and number over 100. Each recipe is not difficult to make: the ingredients used are readily available, and the number of ingredients are not large. The directions are clearly given, and, what I liked most, some practical advice and suggestions are given at the beginning of each recipe.

For a book with such a comprehensive scope, there are bound to be some topics that I would like to have read more about, such as a discussion about using sweeteners (maple syrup and agave nectar are part of the recipes, but brown rice syrup and barley malt are not). Finally, there is a very useful and interesting list of references at the end of the book, which can be used for further reading. The list is not comprehensive: two of my personal favorites are not included - Michael Pollen and Meredith McCarty. This book
is an extremely valuable resource and guide for following a vegan lifestyle.
