Praise for The Happy Herbivore Cookbook

An exciting collection of healthy and delectable vegan dishes.

—Mark Reinfeld, coauthor of The 30-Minute Vegan, The Complete Idiots Guide to Eating Raw, and Vegan Fusion World Cuisine

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook proves how delicious, easy, and accessible low-fat vegan food can be.

—Alicia C. Simpson, author of Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is a treasury of healthy, delicious dishes that are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. With a wide variety of easy recipes, Nixon shows how truly sumptuous vegan meals can be.

—Susan Voisin, founder of FatfreeVegan.com

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is easy to read and filled with simple-to-prepare and delicious healthy recipes. We recommend that you make this part of your kitchen library. Using it often will help you preserve (and regain) your health and appearance.

—John and Mary McDougall, founders of the McDougall Program

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook will not only make all your culinary dreams come true but will give you a recipe for lifelong health. Lindsay Nixon’s recipes are not just vegan but also low in fat, which our research at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine has proven to be a winning combination for disease prevention and reversal. The only danger with this book is reading it on an empty stomach, as all the recipes will be calling your name—like Cajun Home Fries, Mushroom Burgers, Fettuccine Alfredo, Baked Onion Rings, and Root Beer Float Cupcakes. Nixon not only offers expertise on how to cook delicious vegan food, she shows you how to shop and gives you pantry suggestions, ideas for substitutions, plenty of variations, and nutrient analysis for each recipe. So, jump on in, get your feet wet with all the foods you thought you’d have to set aside to get healthy—delicious vegan food is here and yours for the taking. May you be the happiest and healthiest Herbivore with Nixon’s culinary expertise.

— Neal Barnard, president, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Sure, a plant-based diet is often touted as healthier than the Standard American Diet, but ‘vegan’ doesn’t automatically translate to ‘low-fat’—and no one knows this better than Lindsay Nixon. In her new cookbook, Nixon offers up a wide array of tried-and-true favorites made over. Recipes range from vegan classics like Chili sans Carne to Macaroni and ‘Cheese,’ as well as interesting twists on otherwise high-fat foods (such as the ingenious nutty spread or instant cookie dough)—you’ll be amazed at how these foods can be rendered fat-free and still taste delicious. Though I don’t follow a fat-free diet, The Happy Herbivore recipe is still the one I turn to first when I’m looking for a tofu omelet. With its fuss-free recipes and easily accessible ingredients, The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is an ideal cookbook for anyone just embarking on a journey to veganism as well as for those seasoned vegans who simply wish to reduce their overall fat intake.

—Ricki Heller, PhD, RHN, author of Sweet Freedom: Desserts You’ll Love without Wheat, Eggs, Dairy, or Refined Sugar

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is a fantastic resource for delicious vegan recipes. Nixon’s unique and healthy whole-food recipes not only taste great, they are also a wonderful tool for gaining optimum health.

—Tess Challis, vegan chef and author of Radiant Health, Inner Wealth, and The Two-Week Wellness Solution

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook’s low-fat, plant-based dishes promote health in a delectable and wholesome way. Lindsay Nixon’s recipes are a practical and affordable means to a nutritious lifestyle that can help prevent and reverse disease. Whether one has been employing a plant-based diet for years or is just starting, The Happy Herbivore Cookbook gives simple and flavorful solutions to eat better for mental and physical health.

—T. Colin Campbell, PhD, professor emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry and author of The China Study
