My friend Rebecca is a super-vegan. I have the utmost respect for her and her family of super-vegans because it baffles my mind as to how they do it. Whenever Rebecca and I have enough of a lull in our schedules to eat lunch together, I'm in for it if any part of my meal comes from "some poor animal." The speech usually starts with, "Did you know?" and continues with Rebecca trying desperately to prove to me that all of the world's problems are my fault because of what I'm eating. Rebecca's argument is rehearsed and usually flawless, which is why I enjoy so immensely trying to prove her wrong, but deep down I know that she is absolutely right on most points. And that's why I've eliminated red meat from my diet.
If you happen to be in the same situation as me - that is, questioning your dietary identity - you might want to pick up this book. It's not just a cookbook. It also includes solid information about vegetarianism, weighs the pros and cons, gives sources for more info, and, here's the best part, nutritional information for every recipe. Plus it's geared specifically for teens so that all of the recipes are quick and easy, and it even offers tips on talking to your relatives and friends about your dietary choices.
But even if you aren't planning on switching your diet completely over to the green side, this is still a good book to check out. After all, according to Rebecca, if we all reduce our meat consumption by 10 percent and use the surplus grain we would have fed to livestock to feed people in Third World countries, we would have solved world hunger already.

Hi! This book is great. I enjoyed it. This also gave nutritional information, especially for teens just becoming vegatarian. I never read a better book. Well at least cookbook xD
It probably WOULD NOT be best for _kids_! Well maybe 12 and up but im almost 16. Im still using my stepmom margarets amazon account on my kindle so I cant talk....!! Well, I highly reccomend it for 13-17
However, I found the illustration used for the Asian dishes offensive. It was a caricature of an Asian man, presumably Chinese, with a long mustache and traditional straw hat. Was that really the best they could do for Asian dishes? They didn't include similar illustrations for Mexican and Italian dishes, FYI.
Good recipes, but I'm glad they didn't get any of my money.
