Format: Paperback
This Book is an informative resource book for teenagers who want to live a compassionate, healthy lifestyle. Teenagers will relate to the main part of the book as it contains tasty, nutritious recipes that are easily prepared. Most of the recipes are vegan, and each contains the number of servings that the recipe makes as well as the calories, protein, fat and carbohydrates for each serving. Recipes are divided into the following sections: "Smoothies & Shakes," "Breakfast," "Salads, Dressings, Spreads, & Dips," "Soups," "Main Dishes" and "Cakes, Pies, Candies, Pudding." Laura Holzapfel offers an insightful message at the beginning of the book in "Notes from a Vegetarian Teen" and Suzanne Havala, who is a vegetarian, author and consultant on food and nutrition, provides important information for teenagers (and their parents) in "Vegetarian Nutrition: A Primer for Teens." Havala effectively covers such topics as protein, calcium, iron, vitamin C, vitamin B12 and fats - to name a few. Whether you are a vegetarian teenager looking for some delicious, easy-to-make recipes, a parent wanting nutritious meals for your vegetarian child, or you are just looking for a good recipe book, Munchie Madness will not disappoint. -Reviewed by Glenn Perrett

Teen Editor
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.

Format: Paperback
In Munchie Madness, Dorothy R. Bates, Bobbie Hinman, Robert Oser, and Suzanne Havala successfully collaborate to present 120 quick and easy to prepare, teen friendly vegetarian dishes that are as delicious as they are nutritious. There is something here for every dining occasion from snacks to major meals, smoothies and shakes to salads and dips, soups to puddings. Of special value is the chapter on "Vegetarian Nutrition: A Primer for Teens". Munchie Madness should be on the kitchen shelf of every family with teens -- and sent off with young adults headed for college or independent living away from home for the first time!
