Self-proclaimed foodies and “research fanatics” Cramer and McComsey, coauthors of The Vegan Cheat Sheet, team up once again, this time with a new diet to share. It still consists primarily of plant-based foods, but now includes omega-3 fatty acids sourced from sustainable seafood. Per American Heart Association recommendations, it allows for seafood two to three times a week, with the occasional indulgence permitted. This charming guide shares the authors’ personal stories and reasoning for their “cheating” on plants, detailing also why they’ve forgone meat, dairy, and eggs. Cramer and McComsey include an essential shopping list for the diet staples, including baking ingredients and freezer items. And before they go into how to shop for sustainable seafood, they make sure to explain why fish is the healthiest way to obtain essential fatty acids. The bulk of this guide covers all the bases: essential kitchen tools, meal plans, and recipes, along with instructions for navigating restaurants and understanding food labels. Also included are vegan foods to avoid and notes on organic foods, superfoods, and GMOs. This little powerhouse diet will appeal to those looking for healthy nourishment without a militant plan.---Publishers Weekly

Seagan Eating is a small, lightweight book that includes an ample primer on seafood varieties, health information, and a large selection of recipes. You'll learn which seafood is bad or good, and which is even better. I learned a few things! I appreciate the focus on nutrient density throughout the book, also a focal point of my own lifestyle.
Included is a 21 day menu that includes 3 meals and 2 snacks daily, with occasional desserts. They do look good and I think they would be easy for most people to follow. My own menu plan differed in several ways, as mine included many more vegetables and fruits, and I prefer to go lower on grains. I'm also just not into desserts and snacks, other than fresh fruit. My choices were based on my own personal health and nutritional needs and yours may vary as well. The menu is perfect for anyone who needs a structured program to get them started, or as a starting point for those who like to do their own thing.
The recipes in this book contain a good amount of nutrition information, which seems to be lacking in cookbooks lately, and I appreciate the extra effort. Most of the recipes serve at least 4, but appear to be easy to cut down if necessary.
* Rich Seafood Dishes includes 25 recipes such as Coconut Crusted Trout, Seafood Newburg, and Arctic Char Puttanesca
* Creamy Soups of the Sea - 3 recipes including classic Shrimp Bisque
* Homestyle Classics and Comfort Food - 10 family friendly vegan recipes such as Spinach Pie and BLT Sandwiches.
* Sumptuous Sides and Snacks includes10 recipes, mainly potatoes and crackers
* To-Die-For Dips and Dressings: 3 recipes including Ranch, Caesar, and a smoked sardine dip
* Wake-Up Call Best Breakfasts: 4 recipes for biscuits, granola, oats, and French toast
* Indulgent Desserts: 11 recipes - Cookies, candies, brownies, and other classic desserts
This book keeps on going with tips on GMOs, superfoods, and clear information on which foods are better for you. It's a small book and the info isn't extensive, but it's an excellent start which should get you interested in a new way of eating.
I like this book because it's a no-nonsense approach to a healthier lifestyle. The recipes should appeal to anyone who is resistant to giving up meat and dairy, but still want to do better. I would have loved to have seen more vegetables to fill out the rainbow, but overall it's a very good collection of advice and recipes. I would easily recommend this book to my own sisters, and have already told them about it.
